Let me tell you how it will be, there's one for you, nineteen for me...

Aaaaaarrrgghh.

The good news is, I've done my taxes.

The bad news is, I've done my taxes. There are few things I dislike more, and this year, I also did Mike's and Chris's taxes, in the end, a happier exercise as unlike me, both of them qualified for small refunds. This is the first year in as long as I can remember that I haven't overpaid, with the result that I have an amount due, and a fairly considerable amount at that. I am so in favor of a flat tax rate.

Nuff said. It's a gorgeous day outside, and I'm going out for a late, well-deserved lunch someplace where I can sit outside and see and feel the sunshine.

Bummer! We were nervous we had under paid but our ball & chain (old house) came through in the end. We are going to rent it to my youngest in May but have no clue if it will hurt or help us next year.

Have a great weekend!

Try owning two businesses. There is NO WAY in hell we can figure this out on our own. Even our accountant is having some problems.

I don't mind paying taxes, per se. I just want to be sure they take enough out during the year that I don't end up paying in the end. If I never see it, I never miss it, but once it's in my hand, I want to KEEP it.

I can't even begin to imagine what it's like to own two businesses and pay taxes, Lisa. That said, like you, I want it taken out during the year...and tomorrow morning I'll be contacting HR to ensure that I'm not in this position again next year.
