    I have to get started on those at some point too.  To show you how loser I am, I still do them myself by hand.  Of course, it then forces me to really understand what I'm filling out, at least for that brief period.  Then I forget it all again until next year :) .

      It isn't really so bad because we don't itemize and can't beat the standard deduction.  I do have to do CEZ and ES forms.  

      I am always relieved when they are done and mailed.

      ~Good luck~

        Especially since I became a homeowner (should take better care of my place, though), so it's a big puzzle to keep all the documents in place for taking the deductions.  I do them, set them aside for a few days, then re-do them, and somehow I always manage to find several mistakes in how I added things up or didn't take that deduction, or whatever.
