Death and Taxes

Nothing like waiting until the last minute.

Our taxes are finally done.

I hate doing taxes.

I used to love it.

Then it all got complicated.

Schedules A-SE and then some.

But they are done.

Except Kydon just found an addition error.

Now we have to re-do them.

Again.

Well, at least we have 8 more hours before they are due, right???

If the fair tax was law, you wouldn't have any of that. I'm just sayin....

I know! Luckily my aunt squeezes us in between clients to do our taxes and she is dang good.

I've also been a slacker to tell you I got the beautiful 4th of July piece - it's incredible! Thank you so much for spending the time creating it and sending it - it really made my day!

I would SO love the fair tax. But it will *never* pass. It would take away almost all the political power of those we elect. They would have nothing to bargain with, nothing to hold over people's heads, nothing to bicker about for 1/2 of their time. They use the tax code as their power trip. And we know they won't let go of their power trip.

We did our taxes last night too hehe!

Thank goodness for the internet!

Jon and I were reminiscing about the days when you had to fill out forms with an actual pen (!!!) yikes!

Seriously. Self employment sucks when tax time rolls around. I don't even make enough to pay my taxes. That's sad. Don't worry. We just did our yesterday!! By the way, is that Becky Opp commenting on your blog?? I grew up with Becky Opp. Small world if it is...

Don't you use some kind of program to do them? Or is it too complicated once you have a business, etc? Man, I LOVE TurboTax. It still takes me awhile to do them, but at least I don't have to add, because if I did, they'd NEVER be done.

The Opp family that is commenting is Kara Opp. Kara, is Becky any relation to you?? :)

I curse Turbo Tax. Something about the way they ask questions doesn't mesh with the way my brain works. I get finished, then realized I haven't put in half of my forms, and I'm sure they asked me at some point if I had them, but I didn't realize what they were asking, or something, and then it always gives me screwy numbers that I don't understand where they came from.

I find it easier to just do them myself rather than try to wrap my brain around what they are trying to do.

Becky's my SIL - if you know any Opp's there's probably a very good chance we are related!
