another tax year, another tax headache

filing tax returns is a horrible thing. it gets even more horrible when everything fails because the "let's import your slips for you" function only imports 80% of the data and you spend hours on the phone trying to figure out where the numbers went wrong, and then takes a sharp turn to the south when it turns out that not only am i filing late*, but that because my address is outside of canada i can't use netfile. of course not! it's a whole different thing now that we're on different sides of the internets. how would they know which online account to update? how could they be sure that the post wouldn't get lost along the way?
at least the tax return we're owed is going to good use... paying off the cost of submission...

* lots of valid excuses that nobody cares about
