Tribune readers' proposed tax credits
Last week, we solicited ideas for tax credits you could only dream of; we got many great responses, so we are sharing the ones that are tax season–related this week. Here they are, and thank you for all of your credit ideas!
I think all preparers should get a credit for all the data input we do for the government! Paper returns filed require the government to hire people to do the data input into the system. We do it for free? At least give me a pension. — Diane in California
Please oh please gods of tax credits give us a $5 credit for every time a client responds to a request for information by saying "I already sent you that." — Warren in Arizona
$25 credit for each time a client brings their misbehaving children to the interview. — Doreen in California
The Tax Preparer's Sleepless Night Credit. $400 for a sleepless night, $50 for each hour under eight per night. — Jeffrey in California
