I’ve been running around all morning trying to my tax done. Beyond the typical tax duties of getting the paperwork together and writing the checks to Uncle Sam, I have to evaluate how much money I’m going to be able to deposit for my SEP-IRA and whether I’m going to be eligible for a Roth IRA. I got so distracted with everything that I forgot about your taxes. Some of you may be waiting to find out if you won in my TurboTax Give Away.
Since this is later than I hoped to announce, let’s get it out of the way, so we can enjoy our yummy link dessert. The winning commenters were:
Chris Parsons, Just Will, and Sam
It was a bit of a surprise as Nick and Jeff had a lot of ping pong balls with their great tax facts and their haiku. Sam hit the bare minimum with his quick comment. That’s the way the cookie crumbles sometimes.

Thanks for linking to my post! I feel honored!
I’m not being picky (ok, maybe I am) but Chris Parson’s said he’s already done his 2010 taxes and asked if they could be used for 2011.
You said you think they will only be good for this year. So it sounds like one of the codes won’t be used. If it somehow became available I would gladly take it. Just think of all the time I took putting the haiku together (10-15 minutes). I’ll never see that time again…sigh. ;)

That’s a great catch. I missed that part of his comment in my rush yesterday. He reminded me over email, so I’m going to re-pick another name.

Well, I guess justice is served, Jeff. You won in the redraw. (Your odds were pretty good with few other people competing)
Sam hasn’t claimed his/her prize either, so there might be room for others to win. I’m going to put a deadline on him/her getting back to me by 11:59PM on the 13th.
