I AM OFFICIALLY....DONE!!!!!

In the 30+ years I have been preparing tax returns, I have always crammed until the very last minute. Working hard, getting signatures and running last minute returns to the post office to hit the midnight deadline.




This year is so completely "out of the norm" for me. The last return was picked up 15 minutes ago and I have no more pending. Whatever will I do with myself tomorrow? The official DEADLINE day.





Originally, I had these last three people scheduled to be picked up tomorrow, but as soon as the news broke that NO post office was staying open to the usual midnight...the clients must have felt the need to "hurry it up" a little. Past tradition held that I worked late, headed to the Post Office and then off for a late Chinese dinner. Now, I have to rethink tomorrow's schedule.

I may just park my ass on the couch (haven't been on it in months) and veg out to TV all day. I certainly don't want to shock my system and jump right into CLEANING! I am considering NOT even answering the telephone. Why would I want to hear from some poor sucker who "forgot" to take care of this necessary evil? Compassion would intercede I'm sure and yes, I would see what I could do to help. But, my fingers are crossed that this doesn't happen.

Now, I'm getting excited about moving all the files back to their rightful sanctuary in the basement, and bringing some sense of order back to this kitchen. An official office would be great, but that would involve adding on to my house.

I am now going to start my "chill" process, so have a good evening and I will definitely return....later..............

UPDATE:
I do believe that those responsible for the theft of theson's electronics, may have been caught. I'm waiting for the police to notify me. The person arrested, so far, is the son of a former co-worker of thedaughter's. (His father is in prison for....theft!!)

Now go serve some justice....

Congratulations. So when will it be safe to ask you a tax related question? I haven't filed. Am I missing out on tarp money? A stimulus to my small economy? And you thought you were safe.

Good for you! Have a margarita or glass of wine and just chillax tonight!

Lisa said...

I am so glad that you're done! Enjoy your chill. Shall I send over the male masseuse and some mojitos?

In case you don't come back to my place to do further tax advising for free, this is the follow up question I asked you.
I have no pension, no retirement moneys. I'm disabled and on the lowest social security payment possible. I pay property taxes. So if I don't owe, does it matter that I'd be filing late? Last time they were giving money back to the very poor the IRS sent me the very simplest of forms and even I could fill it out. I got $300. Nothing to sneeze at when your as poverty stricken as I. The only good thing about being poor is I'm used to it. I feel sorry for people with good jobs who've lost them--it will be a rude shock to them to find themselves poor.

I do hope they caught the thieves. You're right, there is nothing worse than a thief!
