Taxes are done!

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on April 16, 2010

Our taxes are finished!  I’m so happy now that I don’t have to think in the language of  taxcodes!   Thank God for TurboTax.  Business taxes are complicated and turbotax has little hints in their help button.  Each time I ran into something I didn’t understand, I’d look up their hint online and be able to figure it out.      :)

 I found these quotes for you to enjoy the day after tax day, I hope they brighten your day  :)
