If there’s one thing I love more than taxes, it has to be having a week in which to recalculate and refile all your timely filed tax forms… in duplicate. Thanks to a glitch in my tax prep software (here nameless, but quite reputable), our Illinois return was filed in such a way that Illinois thinks it gets to tax all our joint income, even though only Sarah’s half and a bit of spare change is taxable in Illinois. So, I now get to recalculate and amend both our federal and Illinois returns using a status of “married filing separately,” even though I only actually have to file the Illinois returns.
There may be only two sure things in life, but at least you only have to die once.
