How tricky will taxes be this year? The Oregonian counts the ways

Identity theft keeping thousands of people from electronically filing. Reconciling health insurance premium credits. Understanding changes in Oregon’s medical expense and political contributions credits. New rules for owners of rental properties and busienss that have any goods or equipment that might be depreciated.

Brent Hunsberger of The Oregonian talked with me and several other tax professionals in a quixotic attempt to round up the biggest issues facing taxpayers this year. The Oregonian’s hideously opaque and confusing website has a “print version” of the story here. Don’t miss the tiny little “continue” button down at the right-hand corner of your screen.

Hunsberger and other writers are doing a lot of good journalism at The O lately. And the atrocity of the website is losing them readers daily.
