Doing My Taxes – Calling My Son for Advice

My oldest son Joshua, the proud father of my two grandsons, is a CPA with a large firm in Phoenix.  I called him with a quick question on my taxes.  I am doing them today because I don’t want to wait until the last minute, Thursday.  He told me he is reviewing a return in his office now – an individual Form 1040 – that is 5,000 pages, literally and no joking!  The taxpayer obviously makes a lot of money.  My son said also that they shipped a return recently and the FedEx charge was $1,800.  I love the politicians that say they will make the code simple by reducing the brackets to a single bracket or two.  Right.
