A few years ago, when we started doing our own taxes, Ryan and I began this tradition. To offset the tedium and dullness of all those forms, tables and preparation of piles of paperwork, we gather, in addition to all of our financial documents, a plateful of fine chocolates and a bottle of good wine. We turn on some pleasant music as together we transfer data from box 17a to line 21, et cetera. We look forward to tax day this way. For it, we save our best bottle of Troon Zinfandel.
