So I figured, I just won't do my taxes and will blame them. Wish me luck :)

haha.
it's a pain to do tax, but at least a lot more people will get refunds back this year.
they should've be like some European countries just charge a fix rate on everyone...

Are they really that complicated? Just do the paper route. Shouldn't take you more than an hour or so unless you have all kinds of crazy capital gains and such.

TurboTax caught things I wouldn't have known about. It got me $200+ in extra refunds.

$6 well spent IMHO.

BTW, if you're just now doing your taxes you should be ashamed of yourself. I started doing mine the day Oregon's tax schedule posted.

You'd have to be stoned to promise to kill someone. We are all very worried. Are you in fact stoned? :D
