Well, it is that time of year and I know one thing: I will definitely be paying Uncle Sam. Last year, my wife and I paid over $6,000 dollars. What drives me nuts is that everyone I know always tells me how much they are getting back. I would love to get a refund, but that is just not my reality right now. I am not sure how much I will be paying in, but I guess I will find out soon.
Next week, I will drop off my taxes to our local accountant. I will not even dare do them myself because prison life is not for me. I am too delicate and I really do not want someone to telling me “Your hands are soft like woman.” I would like to avoid that situation. As a result of that nightmare scenario, it is worth paying someone else to do my taxes. I expect to pay between $3,500 to $4,000. I am just guessing at this point, but I figure it will be close to that number.
I will not invest this month and I will use all my additional funds I normally save to help tackle this future bill. This always throws me off on my saving and investing goals. It really drives me nuts. I truly hate paying taxes. Most of the people I know are so happy around this time because they are getting back thousands of dollars that they will inevitably blow on stupid stuff. I know what you are thinking, I am really negative right now. I also have a cold, so that is not helping my attitude. I think I will be even more upset in a week or two when I found out the exact number. My question for you is will you have to pay in or will you get a refund? If you do get a refund, how will you spend it?
