A taxing afternoon

I have spent my afternoon trying to do my income taxes. I say trying. The program I was using didn’t want me to edit, so with scant information the government was owing me almost $1,000. Except that isn’t right. At least, I doubt it’s right. I guess that’s what you get for using free tax software. But in an attempt to never let the bastards get me (too far) down, I downloaded about three other free income tax programs. I guess I’ll just have to see what happens.

What’s that? You say I could take my taxes to a professional? Do tell. No, not if I want to eat for the rest of the month. It wouldn’t be so bad but some of the words in filing the return are scary such as, “amortization,” and “under penalties of perjury.”

Oh well, I still have time to do my taxes. Never do today what you can put off until April 15.
