Taxes Make me Grumpy

I finished our federal return in a record four hours today. (!!) Typically it takes me weeks - though I'm not done yet prowling for undiscovered credits and deductions ...

In Oregon we had state income taxes (no sales tax). In Washington we had state sales tax (no income tax). And in Illinois, where my husband works for an out of state company and I pay a zillion dollars in tuition, we get the benefit of paying income and sales tax. Nice. Not sure what they are doing with the tax funds in Chicago as the infrastructure seems to be falling apart.
