I did my taxes last night. Now, I have to decide if I should mail/email in my return now or wait. Congress may approve changes that would cause me to re-file, but since I’m in line for a refund, I think I’ll take my chances.

Have you ever considered the reams of paper that the IRS produces? Can you imagine if the IRS had to adhere to a word count? I’m sure someone could write a clever satire on the concept. The instructions and tax code and all the regulations must stretch well over 10 million words. Alas, I’m probably even being conservative.

This concludes my paltry and brief 2008 calendar year tax tribute. I think I’ll see about securing that refund.


  1. I'm waiting. But only because I won't get around to it for a month :)

  2. Well, PJ, you might yet beat me. I do still have to get it mailed. You'll have to let us know on your blog once you finish.
