Tax Time

Spain
It's that time of year again, and Ty and I have spent two days pulling together all my tax records for my accountant.

Help, help, I'm drowning in little bits of paper!!!

How I hate this time of year.

(It's snowing, too).

Look on the bright side: if anyone's still pestering you to work on Dance (and I'm sure they are), just redirect them to the IRS for wasting two days of your valuable time. It's the magical joy of scapegoating!

My 1 year old would know what to do with all those little bits of paper. :)

I feel your pain. I just got a letter from the state telling me I forgot to sign my return. Whoops.

I *kinda* feel your pain good sir. Being the small time New Mexican I am, I rarely have a very complex tax form to fill out. Still, it can be a bother from time to time.
*note to infinite hiatus*
Sorry about the mistaken reply to your post, meant it as a new reply.

I'm doing a list minute collection of snowflakes - I mean paper - as well.

Erg. Silly taxes.

This is why I put everything -- and I do mean everything -- business related on my Amex. It gives me a year-end statement I can give to my accountant and say "here, you deal with this."

My advice - have babies so you can deduct them from your taxes. :D

Me hates it too!
Creatives were never meant to figure out taxes. It has always stressed me out too. We have a creative business and it makes us crazy.

It could be worse. You could have Passover cleaning too.

Ah, the benefits of owning no home, no land, and having no deductions other than a student loan... my taxes took me less than 10 minutes to complete, no accountant required. :O) Hope your stress is over soon.

Ah feel your pain.

We just got our first summary back from our accountants and after recovering from the shock will be going through our records again all weekend.

Good Luck and stay off the ice!

I had to do my mother's taxes. it took me 36 hours to sort through her paperwork... which she keeps in a laundry basket.
I sure hope you don't 'file' your paper that way^^

good luck in getting things done anyway

Since I just opened a business and now have to file a Schedule C, this is the first time ever I'm considering paying for the services of an accountant.

It also might be the first year I file on time. :P

I haven't started, but I have a large stack of papers awaiting my attention. I despise fidgety bits of paper. I must force myself to get my paperwork together this weekend.

Counting beans isn't fun, but be thankful you have lots of them to count...

It's even worse for all the accountants, who have to process all your little pieces of paper. I'm just the admin assistant, so I don't have to take care of the actual return, but I do have to do everything else, for literally hundreds of people, and I am not a fan of this time of year.

Taxes...
Well, here in Europe some countries (like the one in which I live) have taxes at 35-43%... I hope this will help increasing your mood there in the US ;)

Snow is nice, isn't it? :)

It's cause you're making too much money, dude!
We should all have that problem. But seriously, you make your money the old-fashioned way, so congrats to you.
