Only two things are certain in life: death and taxes. They are both inevitable. But you only die once and you have to do a tax return every year. Filing taxes is one of the many steps to becoming a functioning adult. You grow up relying on your mommy and daddy doing it for you. Then you realize that you can’t rely on them forever so you go to H&R Block and pay someone else to do it for you. Doing your tax return isn’t that bad, but Americans are lazy and like to bitch about things and have other people do things for them. There are lots of easy tax return programs you can use to do your taxes yourself. I use the TurboTax SnapTax app on my iPhone. You just take a picture of yourW-2, fill out a few questions, pay a little fee, and it sends all your info and does everything for you. You don’t even need to wear pants. Try that at H&R Block.
