And First Place goes to...

Wells Fargo!!! A heartfelt thank you for not waiting until the last minute to send out my tax documents. The deadline is January 31st for financial companies and employers to send out the various tax forms (W-2, 1099, 1099-INT, 1099-R, 1099-ad-nauseum) so that people will have plenty of time to file taxes before April 15th. In this age of computers, where I get *everything* as e-statements or other online forms, should we really have to wait for companies to sit on their cans to pop something in the _snail_mail_ on January 31st? Come on people. Does it really take that many compute cycles to calculate how much interest you have paid? Because I recall seeing something like "YTD interest paid" at the top of my bank's web page last time I logged in. And every *electronic* pay stub I get has "YTD taxes paid" and "YTD Total W-2 Earnings". I could get a W-2 and a 1099-R every day without ANY extra compute cycles.

Thank you again Wells Fargo. When the rest of the companies I do business with get it together I might be able to file my taxes and get my refund. Oh the waiting.
