Well, it's that time of year again. Spring is in the air, and everyone is thinking about their favorite topic... TAXES!! Yes, it's that time of year again when the government asks us to give up our 5 1/2 months worth of salary so that we can give billions of our hard-earned dollars to other countries to use and spend at their discretion. Can you tell that I enjoy this topic; don't get me going! Anyway, if you are like me, you need all the help that you can get when it comes to doing your taxes. So here are some sites that I have found helpful in this area. The usual disclaimer that these URLs work as of the writing of this column holds (in other words, tomorrow is another day).
