Tax Saver

I don't know about you but, my taxes are filed by my long-time highschool friend who is a genuine CPA. However, before she receives our receipts, there are numerous accountings that must be written down in some semblance of order. That's where my son comes into play. He has taken on the horrific grind of writing these various accountings down and has graciously shouldered the responsibility. He has done this now for a number of years. This year he's trying to get everything to the CPA at the beginning of February in the hopes that an early filing will not bring forth an I.O.U. but rather a refund check. Those deep dark circles under his eyes plus his red eyes sprung from their sockets down to his cheeks and the paleness of his face tells me he has completed this dreary task. He has saved me many "tax hours" and lost sleep. I appreciate his fortitude!

Not to diminish the work of your personal cpa but I fear you'll just get a newer iou.

You're probably right - but I thought at least I would give it a try. It's motivating isn't it?
