CAN-US folks, Any tax-time rituals?

January 30th, 2015 at 10:54 am

I printed out the return, some schedules and a form. I was going to use the credit union's discounted TurboTax application but I see that Linux is not supported. (Note to Tabs, yes I could use wine, I'm used to doing my taxes on wine... and potato chips.)
Linux doesn't want to recognize the Pushing Daisies DVD I got from the library either. The TurboTax online site wanted me to upgrade my Firefox 35.0.1 browser. So my options are Windows or pen-and-paper or invest some time in installing and using a browser extension that'll mimic a Windows user-agent setting.

How do you file your taxes? How do you make the tedium of form-filling bearable? Do you use TaxCut or TaxAct?

    I've never found tax filing tedious. I'm actually kind of fascinated by all the formulas and calculations I'll never be able to make sense of. I usually gather all my docs and sit down on the weekend with a cup of tea and get it done. My income is low enough that I can file both federal and state for free online so I just do that. Once the whole process is done I force myself out of my house to enjoy some fresh air and sunshine.

    I used TaxAct. It took me about 90 minutes or so even with redoing one states taxes. I had chocolate to keep me entertained and motivated (and curiosity for how much my refund would be.)
