    I guess you could do that as some kind of efile option, though you'll need to remember minute details from last year to do that.

    can't i let my brewing software handle the details? I use the same software every year so previous batches are all on file..

    You would think that would work, but that'll cost you some money, and their is an 80% chance it won't work and you'll just end up using a 1040

    It's that time of year again. I think there is an extra hop deduction this year, if you find the appropriate form.
