I stand corrected, my error, it remains at 7.5% for 2018. Good catch!

The basic form is only two half-pages, not 8. The other 6 pages are schedules that some (most) income-earning, interest-paying, dividend-earning people have to include. If you are unemployed, or underemployed, not collecting unemployment compensation, OR have a very low income (including dividend income or income from sales of stocks/bonds), aren't collecting social security or medicare benefits, are not disabled, and aren't claimed as a dependent by someone else, then the form is only the two half-pages long. So basically, if you're a college grad working at Burger King, have 4 roommates sharing the rent, mom and dad don't help financially, and your first student loan bill hasn't come in yet - then you only have to fill out the main form which is two half-pages long.

For most of the rest of the country, it is MUCH more complicated than it was last year. Hope no one here is surprised to learn that.

If you are retired and can read and copy the information from a 1099, pension, and Social Security statements, then you can probably do you own taxes using Turbotax. Easy peasy.

Aw right, you guys, knock it off!

Bob Bloom is trying to help us with good, professional information.

Gimme those six-shooters so I can put ‘em here, right behind the bar, where I can keep an eye on ‘em.

If you can’t even stand to hear any mention of the new tax laws without getting in a shoot-em-up, it might be time to get outa Dodge — er, I mean this thread.

Miss Kitty Boomer

PS: Thank you, Bob.

Boomer is referring to a number of off topic posts that have now been deleted that strayed into political territory.

Please stay on topic.
