Taxes: what I did

(Wherein I admit to lying on my tax return. Well, sort of. But not to avoiding taxes.)

I'd already filed my taxes when I posted the poll. The information wasn't on any of my statements or the website, but I knew that it was under twenty bucks and almost certainly under fifteen. I just claimed $20 in interest income from that account. *Maybe* I overpaid my taxes by a dollar or two, but in all likelihood it made no difference at all.

It occurred to me as I did it that some people would worry about getting the number exactly right, and some would just pour a tiny dab of fudge sauce on and call it good. I was curious to see what the breakdown would be, and I don't find the results the least bit surprising.
