taxes

March 12 : I have officially got 34 days to get my taxes done. For me, it's as simple as gathering all the "stuff" and hauling it to the accountant. How lame is that! I don't actually even have to DO them myself!

Every year, I have great intentions of getting it all together and depositing it to the accountant no later than February 1st. every. single. year.

It never happens. Why??? Here are my reasons:

1. I secretly am afraid that I might OWE and I don't want to know about it quite yet.
2. I'm busy.
3. I'm absent minded
4. I fall into the bad habits of "do the urgent first" and ignore the rest of the papers on my desk.
5. The kindergarten papers are burying my taxes
6. I don't want to do it!

So, my goal this week is (guess?)...

You are NOT absent minded.

Happy taxes to you.

Ugh. All of the above except #1. I KNOW I owe. Last year we filed late. It's so silly because I stress about it and think about it and all I have to do is get the papers together and drop them at the accountant but, like you I have a mental block.

This is me. I have been avoiding them and not facing the fact that I might owe. (I really don't think so and I have some $$ tucked away just in case, but I just don't want to deal with reality.) Good for you for avoiding them, too and making me feel better about myself.
