Public Service Announcement

Today is April 15th, TAX DAY! You have approximately 16 hours to get your return done. Seriously do people really wait until the last day to file? What, you don't have enough stress in your life already that you wait until TODAY to file a tax return? What is the matter with people? Don't answer that, it's a loaded question. It would take DAYS, MONTHS, YEARS even, to analyze what is wrong with some people.

Yeah so good luck with that last minute return, me I'm going garage sale-ing. I'll be back to tell you if I find anything decent.

Just out of curiosity, have you filed yours? Did you pay or get a refund? And yes efficient as I am (haa that was meant to be funny), ours have been done since February.

Confidential to Tiffany.....tomorrow you can breathe dear.

Garage sale-ing on tax day is really an inspired idea.

As for us, I got our taxes in the mail last week. It was a relief to do so. As an added bonus, we are getting a refund. Yeah!

Now, what to spend it on?

We filed too. We got a return this year only because my hubby had bonus money that was taxed originally at a ridiculous rate. Without that,we would have been up a creek! Happy Tax Day!

we filed 1.5 weeks ago, which was WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY later than we usually file. Life's been crazy busy this year!! We always get a return, because Dan doesn't claim enough dependants so gets overtaxed throughout the year. It's our sneaky way of saving money, because if he was getting it all with each paycheck, we'd nickle and dime it away. When it comes as one big lump sum, it's easier to get it into savings and keep it there!

I'm just me... said...

I filed ours three weeks ago. Yay Me!!! We already have our fed refund back, but I waited until yesterday to mail out my state since we had to pay.

iMommy said...

Whew!

Kaci said...

Guilty...well just a lil we waited till today to mail our city taxes in. LOL! :)

Federal was done a couple months ago.

Have fun garage saleing or is it saling? why do neither look proper? Eh whatEVA, HAVE FUN!

PS ppl that wait til the last day to file taxes are, IMHO, either insane, or owe tons of money and are putting it off to the very last moment to pay.

Soxy Deb said...

WOW! I used to think you liked me. Now I find out you think I'm insane or who knows what.
I owe, I owe, so its off to work I go.

I see no reason to file any earlier than necessary if I owe them money. Plain and simple, no psychotherapy required. lol.

Letti said...

I can never wait this long to file. I want my money asap. I can't imagine having to stand in line at the post office either.

Kathy B! said...

We're getting a refund but I didn't submit until this past Sunday because I kep getting "amended" statements and having to re-do stuff! Grr.... Usually I have mine done by Valentine's Day... And garage saleing? Brilliant :)

Jenni Jiggety said...

Refund for me, baby!

Elaine A. said...

It's my Mom's birthday so we celebrate on this day. And since we usually get a refund the party is extra fun! ; )

Betsy said...

Federal refunded us, but state, I don't know how they do it, but we owed still. UGH! And I forgot to mail the payment, so I am praying we dont' get penalized for one stinking day, for 38 stupid dollars. lol

Tiffany said...

I'm breathing, I'm breathing!!

And yes people DO wait until today to file. But it won't get done at our office. We had extensions to file out the ass today. Lazy people!

And I'm always the first "guinea pig" at work to efile my taxes in February. I don't mind. LOL

I love that you used a picture from something called pimpoo.com

Don't you just want to say that over and over and over again..
Pimpoo pimpoo PIMpoo pimPOO... :)

got our refunds back a month ago, after moving to new state and paying basically double the social security money.. we are happy to see OUR money back where it belongs.. to Wells Fargo for a mortgage on a house we aren't living in any more.. sigh...

Lola said...

I'm a perpetual procrastinator. I have a long history of filing extensions. I once even forgot to file an extension and got stuck with whopping late penalties. Why? Life happens, that's all I'm gonna say. I've always been the sole person responsible for the taxes, but then I'm usually the sole person responsible for everything else. Anyway, this year I was done in March but was debating/researching a deduction. I ended up filing our taxes last week. Silly, I could have mailed my partner's returns earlier, but for some reason I like to mail them at the same time.

Refunds all around, so I'm looking forward to catching up on bills, new brakes for the SUV, paying for the kids summer golf programs, a new laptop (Woo Hoo!) and a spending spree tbd. I am watching my bank accounts already. I can't wait till that money magically appears!

Our tax lady, aka 'Shady Lady', always files an extension then officially files our taxes in the fall...this year we're going to have to pay so we're glad she postpones the inevitable so we can pull together the payment... :)
