Just did my taxes for

Just did my taxes for the year. OY GEVALT it's a pain in the ass to file 1040---which I had to because of some of my mutual funds dividends. Thing is, even though the tax difference amounts to a few bucks, I still had to file a Schedule D and the full 1040... anyway, it still only took a couple hours, so cheapskate me feels justified in filling it out myself. I'm already dreading next year, though, when I will have to file for income from two states, probably with the same mutual funds dividends, and estimated tax (I'm not even trying to estimate for the RI tax, but might as well for the US tax), and conceivably even a house purchase. If I buy a house wherever I end up this year, you better believe I'm hiring an accountant to do my 2003 taxes.
