John Scalzi's Weekend Assignment

Weekend Assignment #55: The IRS, in its infinite wisdom, is allowing you to deduct one thing from your taxes that you haven't been able to deduct before -- anything you'd like. What do you deduct and why? Yes, anything. And your reason for deducting it doesn't even have to be good -- this isn't an audit, you know. I'm just curious as to what you'd pick.

HOBBIES!!!   All hobbies should be tax-exempt.  This would cover my husband's tractor collection, my horse and all associated bills... and yes, even my computer!

Extra Credit: Do you wait until the last minute to do your taxes? Or did you have them done ages ago?

We usually have a refund coming, so I do our taxes as soon as we get our W-2's.
