Taxes

I hate tax time. And I'm sure I'm not the only one:) We like to do ours early so I get to hear my hubby bug me about: I need all your medical receipts, W-2 from work, donation info, anything I can deduct from my writing, bank stuff, blah...blah...blah! It's not a big deal but I'm not as organized as he is. My filing system for the year amounts to a box filled with receipts that I will now have to dig through for the ones he needs. It's my own fault but that's the way it is.

Did you dig out what I need? I'll hear that every couple of days until I huff and puff and finally get off my butt and do it. And of course I can't just hand him a stack of receipts. I have to make a list. Because we have an accountant and it will be easier for him. Yeah, we pay him $100 bucks for ten minutes of work because we do everything but fill out the damn forms.

Filing 2010 taxes will be a whole lot easier because I've set myself up a filing system. Bought myself a little file cabinet and everything. Have folders with names on them so I can toss the right receipt into the right folder. Yeah, we'll see how long that lasts.

So far I've done good. But it is only February:)

Debbie...As do I and that's why I have somebody else do them even though the taxes are not all that complicated. I'm generally an organized person BUT STILL pulling all the stuff together to pass on is a PITA. There are just so many other things I'd rather be doing:) ~Nancy
