I Like Doing My Taxes
I may be one of the 10 people in the world who actually likes to do his taxes. I enjoy looking at all of the numbers, entering the information, checking and re-checking. This year, my tax filing will be a bit more “complex” than in previous years. I have interest income, income from this site, charitable gift deductions, child-care credits… all kinds of things to enter and configure. Even though I adjusted my withholdings last year, I should still get a decent tax-rebate. (Please note, as much as I hate the idea of giving the government an interest-free loan, I hate the idea of fines and penalties even more. When it comes to my taxes, I ere on the side of over-payment as opposed to under-payment. This may not be the “soundest” financial position, but it helps me sleep a bit better. I do not want to be on the wrong side of any entity that has an Army.) I adjusted my withholdings to have a little more take-home, but I still send in enough to be on the “safe-side”. I usually hunt and peck until I find some way to pay my taxes for free. Whenever I find where I’m going to file, I’ll let you know. Various sites will run specials throughout the filing season.
