Grumpy Cat is an Optimist

Dear John,
 
Grump. That's all I have to say tonight. Grump.
Tard Doing Taxes
 
I was having a good, busy day off. Then I sat down to wrestle with TaxAct.com. And now I understand why you never used any of the on-line aids. You'd file on-line, but you'd work our taxes out on paper. I need paper. I'll be much happier with paper.
 
The problem is that I'm still too far outside the box. Instead of one W2, I have 3 1099s. That alone has rendered TaxAct speechless. To me, this year's taxes are simple. To TaxAct, they're unfathomable. I need paper.
 
So I'll sit down in a few days, after I've had time to be less grumpy, and print off the forms and instructions from IRS.gov. Then I'll spread out all over the dining room table, just like you used to, and get it done in less time and with less frustration. And maybe I'll make it to April 15th without committing any acts of physical violence.
 
If you'd like to drop by and join me, please do. I know you loved doing taxes more than anything else in the world. And you used paper, so I have a good precedent to follow. For Grumpy Cat and me, it's paper.
 
Love you so much,
Joan.
