Well, Mike, we Brits aren't the sort to rub it in (much), but I'll leave it to you - would you imagine that good King George's filing requirements were (a) more onerous, or, (b) a sweet, level walk in the park compared to those of the IRS?

I used to work for a major international accountancy firm in London that hired three (very nice but permanently nerve-shredded) Americans to do nothing but file returns for ex-pat executives of client companies. Even then, it seemed to me a peculiarly cruel and unusual punishment to make a fiscal tooth extraction (sorry!) even more painful than even Heinrich Himmler might have thought necessary..

Aha ! You procrastinated on doing your taxes, didn't you ? Me, too.
