@msolga,
I do this every six years or so just to stay abreast of changes and help guide my own financial planning. The nonsensical complexity of the thing has exploded beyond reason. I'm determined to get through it - so I guess this is a self-inflicted wound.

However, it is a very good way to suppress any vagrant thoughts about the benefits of more government.
