Taxes

The 2005 tax return has progressed to the stage of "print it out to check the numbers". TurboTax doesn't allow for this step in its printing--I think they think you will type carefully and then rely on their checks to find other errors. And while I do know how to make TurboTax print out only what I need to check, I always forget the first time though. And I always do a check on paper, putting little tick marks to be sure things match. I can't edit either text or numbers very thoroughly on the screen.

So, I have 38 pages of stuff to wade through, including the payment vouchers I won't need because I'll pay the Federal electronically. Good thing I did print it duplex, even though the front-and-back pairings are not logical. And in my slightly A-R way, I'll print it out to make the front-and-back bits come out properly when I'm making my final file copy.

Will tackle number checking tomorrow night, when the brain is fresher.
