Taxes and Singles

Posted on the 15 April 2011 by Thefriskyvirgin
Taxes are usually a pain for everyone, but there are a few things on those bothersome forms that may feel like a bee sting in the eye for singles.
1. Check the Box: Just what singles need--a yearly reminder that nothing has changed and you're still single. I'm talking about the dreaded "single" box. 
2. Spouse's Information: Get past the box, face the "if filing jointly, please enter your spouse's name here." Why don't they just put, if you're married or part of a happy, little sunshine-y couple, brag about it here? Really, it's like one of those plus one invitations when you don't have a stupid plus one. Sidebar: Can your plus one be a handbag? If so, I have lots of plus one options...ones that will carry all my stuff and match my outfit.
3. Phantom Signature Box: Once you work through the math and tax tables, you're ready to sign and send. BUT just as you sign your name, you have to face the Phantom Signature Box, otherwise known as the spouse's signature box. It's such a joy to see your lonely little signature right above a cold, empty box. For once, I wouldn't mind seeing something underneath me.  Maybe next year they can add little florescent flashing lights, just for the heck of it.
Oh, and I'm not even going to get into tax breaks, or lack thereof.  I move that they create a form solely for singles--no spouse info. boxes, no phantom signature boxes, and no checking of the "single" box.
Taxes. Foe of mankind, sarcastic enemy to singles.
