I did my taxes today.  I enjoy doing my own taxes.  But I have a hard time hitting the submit button (to e-file them).  I always worry that I have missed something or we will get more forms in the mail.  It usually takes me a couple of days before I can submit them.

But I digress.

The Teenager can’t vote.  He can’t legally buy cigarettes or alcohol (I’m not complaining about that!).  If he commits a crime, he would be tried as a juvenile.  But The Teenager turned 17 this year.  And, according to the IRS, he is no longer considered a child.  We no longer get the $1,000 child tax credit for him. 

I guess this is the beginning of the end.
