8:19 am
they can find the link and prepare their own taxes. >>do you do your own taxes? >>i don't. >> you don't? how come? >> complicated. i will get there. >> i imagine you go through them pretty well afterwards. >>i hear you prepare your own. >> i did mine for the first time. i saved money and it is not all that hard. what a pleasure it is to have you back. you will be busy today. you can get help from tax aid today at the martin luther king jr. library in san jose state that is from 10:00 this morning until 2:00 you can find out more information about the event by going to ktvu.com and click on the web links. >> let's kick it on over to steve and find out about the beautiful weekend. >>it is going to be a nice weekend.
