Cue Europe’sThe Final Countdown

This Thursday is the dreaded April 15th – Tax Day is the official deadline for filing an individual tax return (or requesting an extension in the United States.  (Wikipedia states – “in most areas of the country”)  If you know what areas have a different due date, I’d be interested to know.  (I’m too tired to research it)

I’ve got my taxes pretty well finished with just a couple of questions outstanding that I hope to tie up over the next couple days so I can get them sent out.  I’m thinking this will be the first time in YEARS that I haven’t filed an extension.  I always have good intentions that “this year I will have my taxes done by Valentine’s Day.”  “I will get them done as soon as all the paperwork arrives.”  But the best of intentions never come to fruition….

I should start telling myself that if I get a refund I could reward myself with something if I get filed early, but even that doesn’t seem to work.  Last year I desperately needed money, and filing my taxes to get my refund was the last thing on my mind.  Silly and stupid, I know.  I gave the federal government a free loan until October.  You’re welcome.  Too bad I’m not getting a refund this year….

So, who’s racing around like a chicken with their head cut off to meet the filing deadline this year?
