Since I can transpose numbers at the drop of a hat, I use a tax preparer/accountant.
First year I used him, my ex and I were getting a divorce. Her accountant told her to file as single, mine told me to file as married, filing separately. Happily, I filed first, including her social security number. When she filed, it shot up an immediate red flag at the IRS. She had to completely redo hers, and fire her accountant. Divorce doesn't get better than that.
Now, we only have one problem. Every year, the IRS sends me a $2.12 check addressed to the both of us. We live 1,700 miles apart, so there is no way we can get together to cash it, and it requires an ID to cash it, so I can't just sign it and send it to her. I wonder how long the IRS will keep sending it.
