Yesterday I completed the federal and state tax returns for my mother’s estate and for her trust. Considering the pittance that I earn I spend an enormous amount of time keeping records and filling out forms.
Hiring an accountant won’t do anything for me. I’ll still need to do all the record keeping and that’s the bulk of the work. It’s emotional rather than rational but there are times when I feel as though I’m a full time unpaid employee of the governmentl.
