Taxes used to be more much more complicated. Itemization. Charitable donations. Mortgage interest. Property taxes. I would have detailed spreadsheets delineating every aspect of our expenses.
For the third year in a row, the standard deduction is best (mostly because many of our deductions were eliminated). It sure makes completing our taxes simpler. But now we owe money. Oh well.
At least it only takes one day to complete them. Although it certainly doesn’t feel like Easter.
