How would you describe your 2017?  Good?  Not so good? Not good at all?

Hopefully 2018 will be better!

I put all my money into taxes.  They’re the only thing that’s sure to go up.

The Government says we should be proud to be paying taxes.  I think I could be just as proud for about a third of the money.

For me, trying to do my own taxes is like a do-it-yourself mugging.
