Taxes for us (and I’m guessing many other people) is one of those Love-Hate relationships.  I love the thought of getting money back (which we {gratefully} do)  – but I absolutely hate the thought of all the paper work and headache, and threat of doing it wrong!

Last year I was so worried about all the paper work that I just kept putting it off.  And yes. I was one of THOSE people at the post office on April 15th (or was it the 16th last year? I forget.) Either way, I was THISCLOSE to having unfiled taxes looming over my head – even though Uncle Sam owed me a refund.  YiKeS.  See? it’s all SO scary! Reminds me of this Monopoly Card:

Now that I’ve started the blog too, I’m really getting myself into a pickle where I think I’ll have to start hiring a tax attorney to help me file, just so I’m sure that I’m doing it all correctly!  There are SO many variables when it comes to owning your own business!

So while my personal taxes are done for this year, thanks much in part to my very awesome accountant who is awesome and should charge a larger fee considering how awesome she is!  She’s currently researching a few things so we can prepare for next years taxes in advance, so we have no surprises..!

I wish, right?!

I just recently called the city and the county of the condo that we lived in to find out about last years property taxes on the Condominium.  While we didn’t live in the condo much last year, we still owned it for most of the year without paying into our escrow account at all, meaning that we might have had some property taxes due… But thankfully the bank must have taken care of it – because they’ve got it in their system as paid in full!

Gosh, I feel so blessed that that burden was just lifted from us!
