Well, folks, it's that time of year again. Tax time! Weee. Yippee yay hurray.
I spent a chunk of time yesterday sorting my receipts and getting them plugged into Excel. The good news is I only spent about a third of what I spent in 2011 on books. Yeah, that's the bad news, too. I saved a lot of money, but my heart is weeping.
And now that everything's arrived in the mail - all the W2s and 1099s and 1098Ts - and everything's been sorted, entered and paperclipped into neat little bundles, I can begin.
I'll be starting that this morning. Don't worry, though, I'll still be here throughout the day. I'm going to need something to keep my brain from frying.
What about you? Do you do your taxes as soon as you can, or do you wait until April and hope for the best? Are you more inclined to get them done if you're pretty sure you're getting a refund? And last question... do you do your own taxes or pay someone else?
