For all of my US readers, I’m sure you know that this time of the year is tax season. Fun Fun.
When I was 16, my dad taught me how to do my own taxes and I have been doing them on my own ever since. But when I got married a few years back, I deferred to my hubby and we went to his tax guy. Changing from single to married status, I wasn’t certain if there were any new tax things I was unaware of, so I thought it best to go see a professional.
But this year I decided I’d do them once again and save myself a bit of money in the process.
I don’t think you’ve seen my kitchen… I have an aqua theme going on. (All my dishes and small appliances are aqua too.)
Felix seemed quite impressed that I could do such a task, but to me taxes are really easy since I’ve been doing mine for over 10 years now. I mean we don’t own anything huge and we don’t itemize our deductions so those two things make doing taxes a (relative) breeze.
If I ever own a home or have to itemize, I believe I’ll be singing a different tune!
When I was chatting with Felix, I likened the tax form to a Choose Your Own Adventure book since on the 1040 there are notes that lead you to directions, and from there to schedules, and sub-schedules, etc. Felix seems to think we had read two different types of ‘choose your own adventure’ books. heh
Hope you are all well and have completed your taxes in time. And remember if you haven’t you can always file an extension without any major penalties (you may owe interest or incur minor penalties, but I’ve never had any issue with doing so in the past). :)
