poor now but baller when retired. If Im doing someones taxes who Ive never helped before, I ask for prior years return and ask if anything has changed. If no, then it will very likely be the same type of return this yr with same type of deductions...maybe something new like the "making work pay" shit. If something did change, then I look into it and file the approp. form if need be. Pretty easy :imo:

stonehenge 01-14-2010 05:25 PM

anything fancy tax-wise now that I'm married or just check the other box? lol
