Congress Mucks Up Tax Filing Season at the Last Minute

Happy ! I’m back from my winter break, which I spent with my brother and my sweetie in Baja California, snorkeling and getting tan and feeling a little sorry for those we left behind in colder climes.

I feel sorry also for people starting to fill out their 1040 forms this year — which were out-of-date before the ink dried.

The IRS have published a brief guide on how to take those deductions that Congress extended at the last minute in : the state and local sales tax deduction, the tuition and fees deduction, and the educator expenses deduction.
