When Do You Get Your Taxes Done?
They say the only inevitable things in life are death and taxes. None of us know when 'our time' is up but you can control the other to a degree. So when do you get your taxes done?
I generally do mine as early as possible. I've always been fortunate enough to get a refund and I always need it, so waiting for money that I can get sooner rather than later isn't what I want to do. For some reason though, this year I procrastinated and didn't do mine until last night. Thankfully another refund is coming, which is great. I'm still sitting here today though wondering why on earth I waited until a third of the way through March to get it done though.
Yes, it's a pain but hey... I have money to claim. I'd fill out tax forms every day if I got more money for it every time. I could make a living out of filling out tax forms online, in the comfort of my own home, while enjoying a beverage and chilling in my rattiest t-shirt. That would be a fine gig.
If you owe money, or know you're going to, I certainly understand waiting until the last minute. Instead, I'm now kicking myself a little for being lazy this year and I keep wondering just how long it will be until the deposit hits my bank account. I need it, ya know. That's why I sat around doing nothing for a month and a half after I could have gotten all this taken care of. We... or at least I... am a procrastinator at heart it seems.
April 15 is coming...
