Hello,

I just completed my state and federal income tax returns via TurboTax. Since I'm self-employed my return is filled with a lot of deductions and other details which pertain to my home-based business. This is only the second time I have done my taxes without the help of a tax preparer or accountant and I worry that I could be potentially neglecting an important detail or claiming an inappropriate deduction. I asked the I Ching "What will be effect of my filing just completed state and federal tax returns today?" and received Hexagram 36 Unchanging in return.

Is the I Ching simply telling me that I have very little control over the situation and that I should disengage from negative feelings and just go ahead and file the returns? Not sure how else to interpret this.. Any insight will be appreciated. Thanks so much!

By the way, the last two accountants I hired made serious mistakes on my tax returns. In 2013 I decided to simply start doing the returns myself instead of seeking professional help.

Let me quote R.L.Wing on 36 unchanging:

"...it is implied that your goals and convictions are in accord with what is best for your inner development and should not be abandoned. It is a part of your fate to be in the limited position in which you find yourself. The Chinese regard acceptance of fate as one of the great virtues."

I would think, if I got this reading, that it was okay to go ahead and file my returns. Too bad that the professionals you have used in the past have been so disappointing . . . :bows:

Thanks so much, Ginnie! I am going to go ahead and file. Whole process has been empowering. Used to fear taxation but I'm slowly building up confidence in my ability to handle numbers ;)

Hello,

Not sure if thread merits updating but I do like it when others update results which pertain to specific hexagrams. Last year, after receiving Hexagram 36 Unchanging ("What will be effect of my filing just completed state and federal tax returns today?"), I went ahead and filed both my state and federal tax returns without making any further changes to them. All went well. I paid amount owed and have not received any further communication regarding 2014 taxes. Thanks again for the advice, Ginnie.
