Been doing them since I was a teenager so have evolved as they got harder or changed over the years. Would be daunting for someone who didn't start out doing the EZ form as a kid.

I do our taxes. With a good computer and tax software, it's pretty easy.

I do my own taxes. My father, an accountant, used to check my returns when I was much younger. He died in February 1992 & I had to finish his return. My return is a piece of cake in comparison.

Taxing. But thankfully we get some back so that’s good. I start early and keep good records all year so it’s not too hard to do all at once.

I hate it because I try very hard to be accurate.

It would be taxing if i had to do them myself -- I'm not a numbers person. But my husband does them. Problem solved : )

They fo up by Thanksgiving weekend and down by New Year's Day. We are tired of them by then, anyway.

If you don't put any holiday decorations up, you can "take them down" quickly.

January 21st the ornaments came off the tree, 22nd the lights came off, 23rd it went out the door. Haven't unplugged the porch lights yet -- they still come on for a few hours when it gets dark!
