Ahhh - Taxes!

I consider myself a reasonably smart person, and I've got a number of letters behind my name that indicate that I am, at the very least, literate and good at following directions. However, even I have to admit defeat. I tried doing my own taxes online, and the supposedly user-friendly software managed to completely confound me.

My white flag is up, and I've made my appointment with the good people at H&R Block. While the word online is that they are overpriced and use the same software that managed to eat up two hours of my time, the woman that I am seeing is very good and managed to get me a tax refund last year. Although I am a poor graduate student, I am more than willing to pay for a little peace of mind :)
