It's the most wonderful time of the year...

I can just hear Andy Williams singing in the background as I write this. While Fall is by far my most favorite time of the year from a holiday and family gathering perspective, there's another time of year that I also cherish. Any guesses? Anyone? Hello, is this thing on?

I am speaking of the season that strikes terror into the hearts of many. The season that people gripe about all year long. I'm talking about TAX SEASON.

Yes, I am one of the freaks out there who gets a little giddy about this time of year. And it's not because I enjoy paying taxes or anything crazy like that. It's because I am an accountant and one of my favorite things is individual tax preparation. I know, I should really have my head examined.

Yesterday was awesome for me because I finished my first return of the season for a customer! I get such a high from all the fact collecting and number crunching. It feeds my control freak tendencies and gives me such a feeling of accomplishment when I see that return being e-filed.

I know, I'm a freak. And proud of it.

Yeah I would say I can totally relate but I'd be a liar; however I'm glad it makes you so happy!

BOO!!! Paul does his own taxes and they make him really grouchy. I hate that he does it, but his records are such a wreck no one could help him. Oh and did I mention he waits until the last minute and sends a check and an extension.

Wow. So how did people get all their W-2 et al already? I won't get all my adjusted ones and readjusted ones and restated ones for another month plus!

And I'd call you a freak except that I totally get it. And you already called yourself one anyway ;)
