Learning to do taxes is ....taxing

A few weeks ago I signed up for one of those learn-to-do-your-own-taxes classes through H&R Block. Whew! No wonder they charge so much to file a return! There's a lot to learn, especially for someone like me who has never attempted to file a tax return. I'm not sure what I can and can't say about the class with all the confidentiality laws and such, but I can say, in my own opinion, I think the class comes in an easy to learn format, and I feel confident that, at the end of the class, I will be able to file my own returns. I think I've even realized what I want to go to school for; accounting. Now, I realize tax accounting is different from business accounting, but the whole field is becoming very interesting to me. And it's a challenge! I'll post an update in a few weeks to let you know how I'm doing. Time to hit the books!
