I'm in love with Turbotax.
I thoroughly enjoy filing taxes.
It is reconciliation, completion, organization, exact science.
I procrastinate other tasks so I can sit in front of the computer for hours at a time entering the data.
Even though it is contrary to fiscal wisdom, I try to overpay taxes throughout the year, so I can always anticipate a small refund. A refund, though, is not necessarily why I look forward to tax season so.
I put some of that money toward the kids' college funds. Some will go toward a vacation this year (hopefully Hawaii). Steve and I will each get some cash to blow on things we've been wanting for a while. A nominal amount will go in savings, so I feel like we're making progress toward a down payment on a bigger home. We will not pay tithing, because we already paid it.
I enjoy receiving tax forms in the mail and wish they were required to be sent out before January 31.
I will help you do your taxes, if you ask me, but it will not be as fun for me as doing my own.
