    I bring it up whenever we fill out taxes. It's not so much the money---I just want the paperwork to reflect the situation. "Single?" I'm not that. What was interesting is that, this year, H and R Block did have options when they asked, 'are you single or filing jointly?"

    She showed me how they fill out the forms. Of course, I'm in Florida, which is so backwards they are trying to figure out gaslamps, but I need to think about this.

    Peace,

    heybreaux saidI remember years ago when people like Melissa Etheridge were talking about refusing to pay taxes at all citing "no taxation without representation"

    Of course, I believe they are right, but it takes a tremendous amount of courage to fuck with the IRS.

    Be very careful if you choose to do this...


    well.. it's not so much taxation without representation. We are represented, but it is, in effect, a different tax code that we are given. Oddly enough gays forced to fill out single instead of married are (usually) saved a small bit of money. So the better question is, will the government do anything about us sending them more money?
