Anyone else have a food-tradition for tax time? Our's is a celebration with take-out pizza, ordered as we start the final print of the forms. From a time when our taxes were much more complex and we still both worked full-time, so we'd spend an entire weekend just getting them DONE. No time to cook. Now, with the help of software programs and more time available to spread out the work, it's not nearly so intense. But we've kept the "tradition".
We've been surprised to learn that all in our circle of friends pay a preparer. Where's the fun in that? (Of course there are those who'd suggest we're doing the same with our take-out celebration meal.)
