Is Your Computer Kaput?
A Christmas Delemma
My 2 AM Christmas

There comes a time for every one,
When income taxes must be done,
When we must face this awful mess,
Catering to the IRS.
I hope that someone understands,
Their rules are quite like rubber bands,
That stretch until they almost break,
But that's the form rules often take.
The tax code can't be understood,
I'd follow it if I just could.
Its ninety volumes are too much.
I need some help. I need a crutch.
And so I pay some CPA,
To make that headache go away.
But now I find that he might be,
Lost. Befuddled just like me.
However, I have found an out,
Cause CPAs still pack a clout.
If they sign off as well as me,
Chances are, I'll get home free.
It isn't really what they know.
It's just that they can always show,
That CPA behind their name,
Implying they have learned the game.
If the IRS makes me a wreck,
And starts to twist me by the neck
"Dear auditor," I'll say, "Please check.
"He's responsible by heck."

|Good one, Henry! Many can relate! My refund was "lost in cyberspace" this year. Finally found it in Kentucky. Don't ask! I was too lazy or preoccupied to it myself...|

|Been there, done that this year. I feel your pain and sooth that with a tax preparer.

|Really good! You should send this to them. I don't claim a thing and do the ez form. The little bit that I would save by claiming everything is not enough to buy a bottle of aspirin for the headache and nerve racking that they give.
Good Luck and good for you to get that CPA on there. Covering yer patooty.,
