It might be the stress of several late nights sorting out the taxes, but this email tonight from the TurboTax filing center made me laugh:

The cute icons are a nice touch but don’t go far enough. I’d use the Windows animated file copy dialog as a guide and show dollar signs floating from you to the IRS.
