DEATH and TAXES, originally uploaded by numberstumper.

I have successfully beaten the tax beast for 2008, or at least the federal and state beast. The local taxes are not so beastly — more like a little varmint. They can wait until tomorrow.

What a relief it is to have this task done!

I use Intuit’s TaxCut TurboTax. (UPDATE: I continually confuse the names of TurboTax and TaxCut, two competing products, even though I have been using TurboTax for years. I tried TaxCut one year, and it was OK.) Intuit has been steadily improving this software year by year, but this year I saw a marked improvement. I feel much more confident, and have a clear sense of how to track expenses this year for an easier time next year.

  1. The title of the book written in “Stranger Than Fiction” is Death and Taxes. It is mentioned in the improvised interview scene between Kristen Chenoweth and Emma Thompson where Chenoweth’s character thinks it is “Death in Texas”. The full interview is available in the DVD extras and is a must-see. Might be the funniest moment they filmed. Almost as funny as Kristen Chenoweth’s Late Night interviews.
