So, I was bad this year, and filed my taxes at the last minute. And I mean, the last minute. Just a couple of hours ago. Just a few hours before the deadline. For the past 13 years, I’ve filed my taxes myself, and I still haven’t stopped to let our accountant handle it. Look, I’m no handyman around the house, and I figure if I couldn’t bring myself to DIY with a hammer and nail, I could at the very least, DIY with a keyboard and a mouse.
So, after a few hours and what seemed like ten thousand new addition to the tax code, I was finally done. I was quite amused when I saw this on the final confirmation screen — the software wanted to know if I cared to “share” socially that I was done with my taxes.
I’m not sure what to make of that yet. I mean — taxes are a very personal, private affair. Is the fact that you’re done with them a shareable thought? I suppose it could be…I just don’t know. I would love to see the click-through stats on that baby.
