I just completed doing my 2011 tax return by hand. I used to agonize over doing our tax return because of the effort required and the lack of societal value from the task, even though there was usual some financial value of a refund. However, this year I realized there may be a health benefit to doing my taxes manually :-)
Alzheimer's Disease Protection - How to Reduce Risk and Protect Your Brain offers the following mental stimulation tips to reduce the chances of getting Alzheimer's. I've added how preparing our tax return can help.
Of course, some already think I'm crazy, and beyond help, for doing my taxes by hand when there are so many software resources available. Hopefully, being a tax geek will help keep me from getting this dreaded disease in the future.
