Fortunately, our superb local purveyor of wine, Market Street Wineshop, alerted us to the perfect vin rouge with which to ease the pain and to drown our despair—1040FU. See label below:
The 1040FU website explains—with sentiments that any libertarian will appreciate—why this particular product of the grape was created:
Face it, drinking 1040FU wine is political revolt in a glass! It's your way of telling your friends that the government is squandering the hard earned money of taxpayers.
1040FU is conscientious objection to waste & the current political process. Drinking 1040FU questions the wisdom of a Stimulus Bill that at best created pick & shovel jobs. Toasting with a glass of 1040FU asks the question of how you can revamp health care for 30 million additional people but not add more doctors, nurses or address tort reforms. Opening a 2nd bottle of 1040FU signifies your acknowledgement that the government is socialist and the new 3.8% Medicare Tax on dividends and draws combined with an additional tax rate increase from 36.9 to 39.6% in 2010 are just the beginning. And buying a case of 1040FU shows that you're a dammed good CPA and that you have some of your own FU.

Disclosure: My wife and I just purchased half a case and plan to enjoy a bottle after we mail in our income taxes tomorrow.
