1. For prospective new members, a word of warning: don't use common names like Dennis, Simon, or Kenny if you decide to create an account. Spammers have used them all before you and gotten those names flagged in the anti-spam databases. Your account registration will be rejected because of it.
    Dismiss Notice
  2. Since it has happened MULTIPLE times now, I want to be very clear about this. You do not get to abandon an account and create a new one. You do not get to pass an account to someone else and create a new one. If you do so anyway, you will be banned for creating sockpuppets.
    Dismiss Notice
  3. If you wish to change your username, please ask via conversation to tehelgee instead of asking via my profile. I'd like to not clutter it up with such requests.
    Dismiss Notice
  4. Due to the actions of particularly persistent spammers and trolls, we will be banning disposable email addresses from today onward.
    Dismiss Notice

    I swear, the rest of Western civilization must think we're completely insane. "I paid the government too much money, but now they're giving it back! Hooray!"

    A part of me has accepted the inevitability that is taxes. Getting a little back is always a pleasant surprise.

    Yeah, but in the rest of the world normal people don't have to _do_ taxes. They pay them, but the employers and the government do the paperwork.

    Really? Good on them, I guess. I gave my W-2s to my dad when he went to his accountant. Pretty much a "w/e let me know how much more I have to pay when you're done" sort of thing.

    Unfortunately, the tax preparation industry has gotten the promise that as long as they're still selling tax preparation, it is illegal for tax preparation to not be a thing people need to do.
