Calming Your Tax Filing Anxieties
Death and taxes are two of the few certainties in life -- and also two of the most worrisome. I've known people to literally become physically sick at the mere thought of preparing taxes. They describe having to pay taxes in much the same way people talk about their fear of going to the dentist or even flying.

They look at ways not to gather their tax forms, not to make an appointment with their accountant, and not to do that which is required of them by law. However, with most fears, the anticipation is often worse than the ac...
