Tuesday Ramblings

Just a quick post on Tuesday morning. I sat down and made a list for the week and my oh my I really don't think it is possible to accomplish but... we will see. I needed to do taxes like last month. Don't get me wrong I don't "do" them I just get out stuff together. It is soooo much a pain. With my cleaning business, our rental house next door, our 3 rentals being sold on contract, etc. you get the point!!! I HATE IT!!!! And, every year it's----oh I hope we don't owe!!(as I'm biting my fingernails). So, I have a goal to get that stuff to the tax people by Fri., I've been itching sooo bad to get in Jordan's new room(pictures to come later)and decorate! I am having a hard time finding stuff and with the way the walls are angled you can't really hang up alot of stuff so I need to get creative and figure out ways to make it cool. He has been enjoying it so much. All the other kids have been hanging out in there alot(much to his dismay). It is just a big cool place to hang out. Well, I'm off to gather all the thousands of records and information for the CPA! Doesn't it sound like soooo much fun?!?!?!?! While I sit here feeling like an ice cube~brrrrrrr~ it is only 8 degrees today~
Hope all of you who are in Florida are enjoying yoursselves!!!
Cheers!

I HATE it too! I was all excited to hear we get $2100 back from taxes in May, but was REALLY sad to find out, that we already owe more than that to the IRS in April, ugh!

I can't say I'd like to owe the IRS, but I'd like to be making the kind of money that would cause me to!

I always initially complain b/c we owe, but then I tell Tony that I'd rather owe a little bit than to make a lot less (like we did in MI - where, sure, we got a hefty tax return but we lived on little or nothing all year!) Should I tell on my tax guy now or later? He logged in to see what our outcome would look like this year and found out he forgot to file last year (after filing the extension, Bobbie :) He has NEVER done that! Ack! It's paid in full now! loL!

I will say our taxes are a lot easier to do now that he is not "self-employed". But now that we own a house, it makes more sense to itemize so it will get more fun! Ugh!

Julie - I agree, I hate tax time. As a matter of fact we had to get our stuff ready last night to deliver to the CPA. YUCK!! Looking forward to seeing the pictures of the room when it is done!

You don't owe taxes because your making good money guys. You owe taxes because you don't have them taken out of your check when you self employed. In reality we probably make less money then others because self employment taxes are a lot higher. Sorry Julie for taking over your blog. Money is not a good subject right now in my house. Were still paying on last years taxes.
