Okay, so who's boycotting TurboTax in the name of tax reform?   

While I do love this idea... I must admit that I used TurboTax this year and $175 dollar later... taxes done!

It's just so convenient. I am ashamed. 

Yeah, I think it's a pretty cool benefit also. Definitely would be the kind of thing to FIGHT PLIGHT in cities like Detroit. Did I just make up a slogan? I think I just made up a slogan.

It's Monday, so go catch up on some news.

Leona gave us a whole bunch of accountant-inspired TV and movies to watch this week. Do you have a favorite? I'm a fan of The Untouchables even though its historical accuracy is WAY OFF. Sean Connery!
