    This tax season is going to be hell.  The AMT patch hasn't been passed.  The IRS says that some returns won't be able to be filed until MARCH if that isn't fixed soon.  It may already be too late, who knows?

    And any other changes to 2012 law will delay processing 2012 returns.  Like the two above-the-line deductions:  the $250 deduction for teacher expenses and the tuition and fees deduction.

    On top of all of this disgusting craziness, the IRS is putting most, if not all, returns through more screens to try to weed out identify theft.  That alone is going to slow things down -- they're not even publishing "expected refund" dates this year.

    So thanks, stupid Rs.  Let's review:

    1.  Delayed tax refunds
    2.  $8(!) a gallon milk!
    3.  No extended unemployment benefits

    Looks like a great first quarter.....

      The choice of an itemized deduction for either state income tax or state sales tax.

      Take that, Texas!  No more state tax deduction for you!
