Aaaaand TurboTax isn’t working. It’s almost as though I should have started my taxes sometime before right now

Because yes, that’s the kind of thing that happens on April 14, the day before Tax Day.
That’s just how deadlines work. Bad things happen to otherwise good people — at least on deadlines.
You’re running late for a meeting and every train on the subway is delayed. You’ve got a paper to submit but the WiFi cuts out.
You get the idea.
Shit happens. It just happens.
So if it matters, start now. Start immediately. Don’t wait.
Very little good comes from idling. Just go ahead and start the work.
Apologies to Dan, who is a really good guy, and who I hope is able to file his taxes today. And that photo of the tax form comes via here.
