I am going to SCREAM!

NEVER again will I do my own taxes.  I am so confused that I have been working on them for an HOUR and I cant figure ONE part out!!

I give up.  I will take them to H&R Block tomorrow and have someone do them for me.  I don't want to screw something up and call attention to myself, I also dont want to cheat myself out of part of my refund.

I just DO NOT understand why this has to be so complicated.  Its like they make it complicated so that you have to pay someone to do it for you.  But right now I am so furious that I don't even care.

It might be an error on the banks part though.  The problem I am having is with my Home form thingy and they normally send me a big packet that has 5 or 6 pages but this year they just sent me one flimsy little page, and that just isnt going to work for me.


Ok, my rant is over, I have calmed down a little.

I guess that I should have done them earlier to avoid this, but I just got my W2.

Deeeeeeeeeep breaths.


  1. You tried to do your own taxes?! Good call on H&R. I'm a new follower from Thrifty Thursday. I hope you'll check mine out, too!

  2. I don't do our taxes but pay our tax guy to do them...but just getting all the things in order for the tax guy stresses me out! Every year I swear I'm going to keep things more organized, but every year...I fail. It's such a mess of papers to sort through. Ugh!

    I saw your blog linked up on the Wednesday's Having Fun Blog Hop - I'm your newest follower :)


  3. I hear ya! I've always done my taxes, and this year gave up. I had to go to the pro.

    I'm a Thirsty Thursday hopper, and new to blogging. Thanks!!!

  4. Yikes! Wish I could give you some sage advice, but I really don't have any. I always use turbo tax, but ours is really simple :)

    Stopped over from the bloghop, new follower, please stop on by..

  5. Oh sucky! I am sorry it has come down to the wire. Annoying. Hope they get all worked out!
    Stopped over from FTLOB :)

  6. I'm with you on this. I did our taxes the last few years, and we have had to do some corrections. I will be hiring someone to do them for us from now on.

    I'm a new follower! I hope you can stop by my blog!



  7. HI from your newest follower. Love your post on taxes don't do mine since I have enough grey hair now. H&R Block is a great deal

  8. We used a software program this year and it was super-easy! I can't believe we paid someone so much money last year. They have free online software somewhere. Good Luck with it!!
