IT's APRIL 15 th !!!

  1. Have you got your income tax done?????

    I wonder who decided April 15th would be tax day??

    This year it is in the same week as Good Friday !
    It seems almost sacriligious to have the two in the same week.

    Have you aready received your refund and spent it??

    Let's celebrate ! The Iraqi war is winding down.....planes and men are on their way home.

    Hyacinths, tulips, and irises are popping out of the ground in the northern climes.

    Easter shopping and family celebrations for next week are
    in progress.

    Spring has sprung !
    Life is good.

    It IS gorgeous and the blossoms are beginning after what seemed like a winter that would never end. Haven't got my refund yet. Heavy into spring cleaning. In fact, heading to the laundry to do some more curtains today. Feels good, doesn't it?

    It is beautiful outside! LOVE SPRING!!!!

    Yesterday, though I paid over $4,100 in taxes. Hint: Never cash in an IRA . . . even if its losing lots of it value due to the poor market. . . because you will pay. . . you WILL PAY. . .


    At any rate. . . It's April 15th! The tax-man cometh. And it really is a beautiful day outside.

    Life. . . it can be ugly AND it can be beautiful.

    Today. . . I choose to see absolute beauty.

    Maybe it's just me, but I don't understand why people get stressed out EVERY year and wait until April 15th EVERY year to get their taxes done. Like they would somehow transform and get them done early if it were on another day??? Please.

    It's the same day EVERY year. And still there always people running around like chickens with their heads cut off, scrambling and trying to make it to the post office by MIDNIGHT.

    Anyway, mini-rant over. I just don't see why some people refuse to see the pattern and the stress they bring into their own lives.

    We get a little refund every year. Generally file as soon as I have everything in hand to do it just to get it out of the way. One year we owed and I did do them early but didn't mail them until the last day (why part with the money any sooner than necessary? )

    We had to pay 4k.....
    Not enough deducted from MY checks was the reason
    Thats the way the ball bounces!

    Did my taxes back in Januarry too because I got a $500 refund.

    The nice weather has motivated me to wash and wax my car as I'm off and I'm awake during daylight, which is strange.

    Got my refund back about four weeks ago. Nice check too!

    Went to the SUV payments and the EVIL CREDIT CARD though.

    We usually get ours done early, but this year I procrastinated because I thought we would owe. Got them done on Saturday and we're actually getting a refund! Yay!

    we never wait. we always get a refund. i never stress it out, and never wait in line in the post office trying to mail them out. i prefer not to stress out. but then we never make enough to have to pay in so why wait? lol.

    We always wait until April 15 as we always have to pay and my dear husband refuses to let the government have our money a minute before it is due. Also, if we get a refund (and yeehaw - we do this year!), he thinks the government should pay us interest for the use of our money all year.

    Our post office never has a long line . . . another benefit of rural living.
