My dear friends I always go to work early each year to do income taxes. I feel that it is important to get this out of the way quickly. This year I spent close to 100 hours getting my return filed and Elena's returns ready for a final review by the accountants. I have some 45 years of experience with taxes. It can be bewildering even for me. I send Elena's taxes to a very competent accountant to double check everything that I have done. The moral of this story is that Congress needs to simplify the tax system. I feel sorry for the poor people who have to work at the IRS. I doubt if many of them understand this complex machine. My friends we need to make taxes simple! I'm sure that most of you out there find the system bewildering!
