There are three things I wish I'd known about sooner: Electric Tootbrushes ($100 is not a lot to spend if it prevents 3 root canals), The Birthday Party (this 80's Australian rock band is the blueprint for The Jesus Lizard and several entire punk rock record labels), and finally, tax preparation software.
I must be the last guy on earth to discover this way to make tax time easy. Tuesday I spent from 3 to 5 pm in the friendly, capable hands of a tax robot, who, for a mere $13 asked me numerous probing and helpful questions. Why leave home! Many are the years when I had incompletely filled out tax forms or lacked correct paperwork. This year I had zero stress and learned a lot from the robot. And buying Turbo Tax must cost more than $13, yes?From now on, doing tax paperwork is the one thing I won't try to learn about at the library.
