the Ides of April

Real Estate Agent with Jameson Sotheby's International Realty

Here we are again.  It's the fifteenth of April, also known as "Tax Day".

If you're like me, you have money to pay.  If you're also like me, you don't like to send the money in for the government any sooner than abso-freakin-lootely necessary.

So, while my envelopes have been prepared for weeks, they are sitting on my hall table ready to be mailed in today.

I could really make a lot of money if it weren't for taxes.

Alan May , I have filed timely two years in a row which I am SUPER stoked about, but I too prefer to wait until the last minute to pay.

I carried on my tradition, another extension filed and eventually I'll get to getting the taxes ready enough to give the CPAs and then find out my "penalty" for making money in real estate.

I did my taxes really early this year!  I worried how the new tax laws would affect me, but the outcome seemed little different than last year!

Alan- I'm with you. I can remember the first time I did my return and had to write a check. My hand was shaking.
