    IRS Seeking Comments on Postcard 1040

    Trying to find some choice words for my letter. BTW, I love dinosaurs since I worked in a Sinclair gas station as a kid. Remember Dino?

    IRS Seeking Comments on Postcard 1040

    Thanks Lee, evidently this is not over if they are entertaining comments. My being a perennial optimist I am hopeful some sanity will take root. I like Abby's letter, will make a nice template in keeping it short, sweet, and to the point. Now where's my thesaurus?

    1040 PostCard

    Already did, congressman and senators. Unfortunately they're all on the other side to do much good. I hope everyone writes too. This is a real disgrace.

    1040 PostCard

    Maybe the EPA should step in.....or wait, sorry, I lost my head. But really, is this some kind of a joke? What will it take, a Million Tax Preparers March on the Capitol to make the fools on the hill realize the foolishness of this re design when it only needed to have some modification. If I remember correctly it was Forbes idea of a post card sized return but with total simplification of the tax code, at least those two things go together, not what's coming out of Washington now, they're freaking me out.

    I am at a loss of words to express my disdain for this.....words that can be printed here.

    I'll be keeping my hairdresser. It's very simple, she receives a 1099 from owner, no other financial transactions such as product and rent. Besides, I need her for her mousse recommendations as I don't have the lustrous hair from years ago.

    1040 PostCard

    I don't know, maybe I'm being cynical as some people are pushing the postcard size to satisfy their own reasoning to portray simplification, when in reality I think it will cause more complications, more likely for us and the taxpayers than them. I guess we still have to wait as maybe they need to test run this. Let's hope they come up with true simplification or adjustments that make it easy, but I have no faith in them whatsoever.. Couldn't they just leave the 1040 as is and just omit and add what is necessary? Familiarity seems to be what people like, at least for us mature people. No, that would be too logical and sensible, they need to put their approval stamp on it for their egos and for everyone to think a postcard idea (like that is tax reform) is better than a letter size, we shall see.

    Abby & SoNot's Excellent Adventure

    That was great, so descriptive I could taste the steak and beer, heard the water going over the falls, and felt my stomach grumble after thinking of sake. This is what fond memories are made of, simply perfect. Sounds like SoNot is a fun travel companion, being so agreeable to the busy schedule you kept her on. Really wish I was there, so glad you all, I mean Y'all were able to do this.

    June 23 Get Together / Shameless Plug

    This thread is killing me. You're all going to have so much fun, like a high school reunion on steroids, seeing old friends that you remember what they looked like, but have changed. Only now, as Abby said, you have images of what you look and sound like, then when you see each other in person, I could only imagine all the hugging. I wish I could be there, but will be in heart and soul. Can't wait to hear about it, I'll be toasting all of you on the 23rd. Great photo Abby, Karin looks like a real sweetheart. You have my hair from the 70's.

    Your fee

    I charge what the bank charges. I call and request the additional amount, if client doesn't pay, they're dead to me.

    It's time for a new printer

    Ditto with Lion. I'm running out of room with the 4 HP printers I have, one still used with my XP computer that I continue to use from time to time. When she goes, they both go.
