In case you had any doubts that we are getting overtaxed!!
This morning, I woke up early to start doing the taxes. Duly downloaded Turbo Tax which I have been using for over 15 years to prepare my taxes. It is undoubtedly one of the most user friendly software I have ever seen. In any case, Turbo Tax imported all the necessary information from last year’s file so that I do not have to re-enter all the mundane details like name, social, dependents etc.
And then, it came up with this screen! I owe $9 of taxes!!
You can imagine how flummoxed I was – “Wait a minute – I have not entered anything about 2015 yet!!! And you yourself prepared last year’s taxes. How can I start with a tax liability already?”
As you can imagine, things only got worse from there!! 🙂
