Could you please not talk about the IRS right now. Some of us still haven't started on their tax returns.... I decided to file the form for the 2-month extension, and just spent an hour trying to figure out what form it is - it turns out that there is no form, as the extension is automatic, but you have to attach a statement claiming the extension when you file the actual return.

Did mine yesterday. Called my tax preparer in LA, an old grad school friend, told him it was ridiculous for me to go through all my 2010 records as I only had $600 in reported income, and I hadn't had to pay any income tax for several years. He reminded me that I did owe the tax on my $600 of 1099 income and ee had me send our SS statements, all interest income etc. He then found carry forward losses from previous years and an earned income credit so that I don't have to go through anything and get a $58 refund. I will have to pay him something, but it is well worth it for not having to do a week's worth of prep, as in the past. Eat your heart out!
