    [color=red][size=5][b]OOOHHHH THE HUMANITY
    WARNING WILL ROBINSON – do not wait til April 14th to start[/b][/size][/color] :woohoo:

    [color=purple][size=5][i]The new 1040 changes are drastic & while 1040 form is post-card time
    I am struggling to get started as it is more COMPLEX & TRICKIER than small size implies :whistle:

    Lots of paper will be wasted on all the attached schedules 👿
    There are HIDDEN new SCHEDULE forms & if you start reading IRS manual it will make you dizzy :pinch:

    I always do my own taxes (plus kids), as I have corporate working knowledge of business taxes, etc.
    I actually wrote my own tax software (very primitive to do fed & state calculations to fill out PDFs)
    And even though computer savvy — I always MAIL to IRS, as there dangers & risks for electronic filing :unsure:

    I am looking for working examples of completed 1040 & will use thread to share resources in thread
    I will also look up U-Tube videos later — as this is a brand new ballgame. :huh:
    Mainly wanted to share 1st impressions, that IRS made this harder than it needed to be :whistle:
