Tax season is a stressful time for many people but it really shouldn’t be. There are lots of software programs that walk you through the process or you can hire a tax professional. If you run into problems, check out IRS Publication 17 (Tax Guide 2010 for Individuals). It’s a comprehensive collection of information that closely follows Form 1040 and is very helpful. The IRS website is www.irs.gov or you can call toll-free at 800-829-1040.
If you are still feeling stressed, take a break and enjoy some 1040 tax form humor. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/42364146/ns/business-picture_stories/displaymode/1247/?beginSlide=1
