After taking a break to celebrate Easter and Passover, I’m shipping out this newsletter just in time to give you some advice on popular tax programs. I recently filed my Illinois state taxes and realized over my life I’ve used three tax programs: Credit Karma, Tax Act, and Turbo Tax. I thought you’d like my comparison of the three on my blog:

Chapter 1 – My Mother-in-law
“We just passed Elkhart. We’re two-thirds of the way there,” said Karen.
“Goody,” I said.
“Are you still grumpy about going to see my mother? You’ve always liked her, ever since you met her ten years ago.”
“It’s not your mother; it’s your mother the zombie. Who wants to see one zombie, let alone four of
“Now that’s not fair. Mom and Dad have adjusted to their zombiism very well. Mom still volunteers at
church and bakes cookies and pies for the bake sales. Dad still works as an accountant at GM. There’s
nothing to worry about!”
“That covers Diane and George. I know them. I guess I’m ready for them. What about your brother and
this new girlfriend of his? I don’t think Don has said two whole sentences to me since I’ve known him!”
“He’d never get a word in edgewise, with you Ron. You said yourself; you’ve had diarrhea of the mouth.
He and his friend Maggie will be fine.”
“Whatever you say, Karen,” I knew when to surrender.
Excerpt Part 2
I glanced at Karen while I drove. Her arms were crossed under her breasts and she looked out the
window, away from me. Trying to make peace, I said, “I thought we dodged a bullet when the zombie
turkey plague just missed Gary Indiana. I never dreamt this zombie thing would hit our own family.” I
said in a carefully neutral tone.
“So far, it hasn’t hit us hard. Life goes on as usual.”
Great! At least she’s talking to me. “As great as it can with glowing red eyes,” I said with a big grin.
“I suppose. I hadn’t really thought about how hard life would be, like that.”
“I have no clue what that’d be like.”
“Clueless from Toledo!”
“Clueless going to Gary.” We laughed. “Remember our rehearsal dinner?” I said.
“Sure. That was six years ago. Hard to believe.”
“Your Mom and I got along fine there. We dominated the conversation, as I recall. I hardly noticed the
rest of your family. I do remember your Dad impressing me with his analytical mind. Did Don even talk?”
“Yes, a little, to me.”
“Well, I don’t remember anything.’ I only had eyes for you’,” I warbled.
“Ha! Good thing I didn’t hear you sing before I said ‘I do’.”
“I’m sure you did.”
“I’m sure I wouldn’t notice. I was too amazed I got to marry the ‘Big Man on Campus’, college graduate
and internet marketer, Ron Yardley.”
“So why did a beautiful girl like you marry a guy like me?”
“I still don’t think I’m beautiful, just average. You’re the good looking one!”
“Thank you, but you’re wrong. You’re the good looking one. I’m just average.”
“We’ll have to agree to disagree.”
Excerpt Part 3
We settled into a companionable silence for ten miles or so. Then I said, “I know why I’m so reluctant to
meet your family.”
“I did some marketing for the Midley Beacon during the turkey apocalypse last Thanksgiving and then later
for author Andy Zach’s book about it, Zombie Turkeys. I saw a lot of photos and videos and read too
many gory details. I never liked the idea of pretend zombies, let alone real life ones. I was just glad we
missed it in Toledo. Now I’m in the middle of it.”
“Now Ron, meeting my family, even if they’re zombies, doesn’t put you in the middle of another zombie
“Yeah, you’re right.” That was the ultimate solution to any marital disagreement, I’ve found.
Excerpt Part 4
“What’s Don’s girl friend’s name again?”
“Maggie. Maggie Unsicker. Mom said they were going to announce their engagement this weekend, for
