EQ Bank Savings Plus Account

in Turbotax

The nice folks at TurboTax have given me (again) 5 (five) codes to use their TurboTax on-line system, and now all I have to do is give them out.

Now how should we do this? Previously I really enjoyed the Two Line Financial Horror story challenge, which was quite terrifying to read (and judge), however this time we will go for something a little simpler.

This year’s challenge, answer the following question in the comments to this post:

I’d rather be _____ than doing my taxes

I realize for some who really love the tax system (I’m looking at you Blunt Bean Counter) they can’t fill this in, but for the rest of us common folks, it shouldn’t be that hard, can it?

Submit your answer in the comments and I will be announcing the winner(s), on Thursday January 23rd. You must include an e-mail address where you can be reached to be a winner. I will send you an e-mail “pinging” you if you are a winner, you have 24 hours to respond, if you don’t I will move on to the next entry.

    A bit late for the contest…

    I’d rather be doing….. oh wait can’t mention that here.

    I don’t mind tax time, seems the government owes me every year.

      Thanks for the GP response šŸ™‚ . I don’t like when the Government owes me money, but then again, it’s better than when I have owed them money…

  • Holly January 14, 2014, 10:22 PM

    I’d rather be doing my own taxes than asking my mother to do them yet again. (Um, I’m 36 and I pull my own and my spouses info together, but my mom has turbo tax and all of our previous data so I just ask her to do it as opposed to doing it myself. This year my daughter has to file taxes. I can’t bear to ask my mom to do my kids’ taxes. The fact I shared this is embarrassing enough).

  • Kevin January 14, 2014, 7:25 PM

    Anything else.

  • Phil January 14, 2014, 8:41 AM

    I guess I’m similar to Blunt Bean Counter, as “I’d rather be doing other peoples taxes than doing my taxes.” I know it’s crazy, but being a numbers guy, I already know what my numbers look like, so this way I would get to see others numbers – Cheers
