A Taxing Day

56C7A5FB-3583-4D1D-8D62-F2B7716867F2I saw an advertisement for TurboTax today and that ad reminded me that I needed to begin my tax filing process. I still have almost two months — April 15 — before I actually have to file, but I envisioned getting off to an early start, the key to which was to download the tax preparation software.

Once the download was finished, I opened up the software program on my laptop (yes, I was using my laptop and not my iPhone, although I’m back on my iPhone now as I write this post), and completed entering the indicative information, like name, address, Social Security number, etc.

Then I gathered all of my 1099 forms. I’m retired, so I don’t have any W-2 forms since I’m not earning wages. Once I had all of the relevant forms on my desk, my eyelids started to feel heavy, I found myself yawning, and I genuinely began to feel quite lethargic.

I got up, walked into the kitchen, poured myself a fresh cup of coffee, walked back into my office, sat back down in front of my laptop, and decided, fuck it.

I still have plenty of time before my taxes are due. I’ll pick it up again on March 1st.

    These tasks do bring on the attack of lethargy!

    I am considering a crying towel for my son. He just found out he will get over fifteen hundred less on his return this year. Perhaps a yellow one to go with the yellow vest I sent last month?

      Seems that a lot of American taxpayers will be going for the crying towel this year when they do their taxes.

    I did mine last weekend and already got my allowance from Uncle Gavin. Had to pay the other Uncle a little bit, but it all worked out okay.
