Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

file my 2011 taxes (read all 2 entries…)
2 out of 3

Finished up my Federal and State today and e-filed them. That just leaves my local to do. I also need to figure out what I need to do extra for my state ones as TurboTax indicated that I had to submit a copy of my W-2, but it didn’t give me any explanation of how to do that.



The turbotax program will give you the form and address to mail the return to. I know ours does at work, although it’s not turbo tax, but I think turbotax tells you where to mail federal, so I’m assuming the state, too.

The issue is it doesn’t tell me what I need to send. It made me fill out an extra form due to an employer holding out more taxes than due, and indicated I need to send the W-2, but then it didn’t indicate what all I need to send. Going to call my aunt who does this for a living to find out.


It should print out the state forms. Just mail in all that it prints other than your copy. I think there’s an option to just print the mail in return. Attach any w2s that have that state’s income on it. Some states only require one page to send in. Some more. My guess is that you won’t have too many pages. I’ll bet your aunt will know even the names of the forms.

I e-filed, so that’s why I don’t know which documents need sent. The state accepted my return overnight, so I’m thinking I just won’t send anything and if they contact me then I’ll send it.
