As we head into the LAST WEEKEND of tax season, let's take a moment to look back on the stories that kept us in touch with reality these past three months while we were yearning for a glimpse of daylight. You can thank the IRS for giving us some extra excitement by delaying the acceptance of tax returns; you can look forward to new software this summer as your firm embraces Microsoft Office 2013; O.J. Simpson returned to the news with tax woes, Blackberry is trying to keep up with the competition; The president's budget is ruffling some features; software problems at H&R Block resulted in more than half a million tax returns being incorrectly prepared; A-Rod will pay more tax this year by recuperating from his injuries at home than he would if he joined the team for spring training; and the list goes on. Finally, we bring you today's news which includes an attempt by the IRS to claim it has the right to read your e-mail messages. Never a dull moment!
