Responsible Alien

I am an alien, that's for sure. I just have to determine if I am a non-resident alien or a resident alien. You guessed it! I am trying to do my taxes for last year, and I keep putting it off to the next weekend. Soon, the time will come when I can procrastinate no more. 2007 was a special year for me. I graduated from school, got a job, got married. But the aftermath of these special events have come to haunt me now. In case you were wondering, the married life is going on fine, thank you! But its just that these special events have made doing my taxes my worst nightmare. A student for half year, married for half year, multiple locations, multiple W-2s (couple from my wife) have my head spinning at the moment.
So last weekend, I got to trying TurboTax online. At the end of an excruciating hour of filling forms, I realized that I am due to pay a few hundred dollars as federal tax. I trashed the attempt. Now, I've got to get people, I think. Meanwhile, I can't wait to get back to work Monday morning. Sweet Mondays!
