I love doing taxes

Yes, you read that right. I'm not so fond of paying them, per se. Although I haven't had to pay for a long time, due to the offspring. I think next year I might lose my EIC (as T will be 18) and then I'll have to pay, but that's not the point. I like, no, LOVE filling out the forms, figuring out if, for instance, I claim car expenses then I get less EIC money, so maybe it's better not to claim car expenses, and not worry about how claiming the car for biz use might change my insurance rates, blah blah blah. I like to see the numbers rise and fall, rise and fall. What if I made a million dollars, what kind of taxes would I be paying? What If I were 65 and blind? It's all so arbitrary...how do they determine that a kid is worth $3700 and a mile in your car is worth $.555? I really love making everything match up, I like making the messy forms all tidy. I wish I had investment income and dividends just so I could fill out more forms. I want to turn in an inch-thick stack of completely correct tax forms just to satisfy my weird number OCD thing. Really. I'm leaving my taxes spread out all over the computer desk tonight. I might actually masturbate thinking about completed, correct, filed taxes. Mmmmmm....

it mostly goes to war and it utter b.s. IMO. for someone like me w/ a small biz/single mom i dole out these quarterly tax payments under duress while some big biz gets through every loop. now the audit- it's a 'research" one, so it's not about being flagged it's a lottery I won- literally a number pulled out, to help them calibrate what the levels SHOULD be for taxpayers. but if something's wrong i'll get nabbed. i don't expect it as have clean taxes and books but it just sucks. i have to take off days of work to prep and then show up, meaning less income, more bill pile up, more stress. as part of it I have to PROVE I'm a single mother head of household. i don't want to say what i think of this in case Big Bro is reading- but seriously, do nothing for me and then make me prove i deserve nothing from the govt? kiss mine.
