Taxing.

Ugh… April 15, how I hate you.

And March 15. I hate you also. That’s the day corporate taxes are due.

Our corporate taxes are never a problem. They have pretty much been the same since the first year. Plug-and-play. Here’s the numbers. File.

Our personal taxes are another story. With both the Husbear and I each having our own personal businesses, then our personal “non-business” finances that we have to file separate thanks to not being a recognized couple, figuring out who gets to claim what and what gets claimed where is a real pain in the ass.

I’ve been working on our taxes for over a month. And yet I was up until 3:30 AM last night/this morning finalizing the Husbear’s taxes. Which he owed. And I just now finished my own. Which I also had to pay in.

Dookey.

I know I could let Accountant do it. But for years I’ve done the taxes “just because”. And I paid Accountant to do the taxes also. And the numbers always matched. So why the Hell was I paying Accountant that much money to do all the taxes if I can do them myself?

I’m really surprised there hasn’t been a revolution yet, just over the tax code. Someone needs to work on that. I would totally vote for you to make it a flat 10% tax for everyone. But make that happen first. Then I will vote for you.

Until next time...

  1. I pay an accountant to do ours. Husband is a musician and its a true pain in the ass. I have lots taken out of my check, and luckily it’s been years since we’ve owed. 10% sounds great.

  2. there are too many people whose business depends on the complexity of the taxes; it will never get simple as it would destory economy AND everyone has a pet deduction they are not willing to give up for the sake of simplicity. So ‘get used to it’ and get an accountant – the headache saved is worth the $.
