It’s always a relief to get Tax Day off the boards, almost as good as finally being done with the Christmas shopping.
I actually do my taxes way early because I’m leery of procrastinating, but I'm relieved for all of you who are done and don't need an extension.How awful to extend the agony.
Every year, I feel like such a failure for having too few expenses, having given too little to charity to get a deduction for giving and for having gotten nothing back for my medical bills. Not that I want enough medical bills to get something back.
I'm just another tax doofus who forgets to try to figure out how to manipulate the system to the fullest, how to hide and reframe earnings, how to grab hold of loophole after loophole in order to pay a lower percentage in taxes.
It's unAmerican of me, I know, to be so feckless in not trying harder to get every penny I could keep from the government.
I haven't even tried to read the tax code, much less figuree it out and I haven’t even figured out the percentage of taxes I'm paying.
I probably don’t want to know.
