Yay! Tax Season

Filed under: Uncategorized — nicolarose @ 7:21 pm

This is my second year doing my own taxes (OK, well last year my dad helped me… and this year I’m thinking of hiring someone) but still, I’ve noticed that of these two years I’ve never been so stressed out as during the exciting gloomy Tax Season. Who knew taxes could be so awful?! Well, actually, I think everyone knows, but I apparently feel like it’s only me.

I know, I know. Taxes help  rebuild our roads, give money to our cities, help schools, parks, etc. etc. Yup, I’m all for all those things. They’re great. I’m not actually saying that I mind paying all the taxes (well…um…OK, yes I am). But what I’m really saying is that I hate the process of filing my taxes! The government has records of all our (legal) paychecks and wages earned, so I personally believe that they should just deal with our 1099’s for us. Can you imagine all the extra time you would have if you didn’t have to worry about them?!

In fact, I think if I wasn’t spending so much time stressing out my poor dad (and myself), I would actually be productive- and hey, maybe making  more money to spend on our dwindling economy. Now don’t we all think that’s a good idea?

I’m sure most of you  have already dealt with the burden of tax season this year and are breathing in a deep sigh of relief right about now that you’ve already completed yours. Well if not, welcome to my club. I think it’s time to protest and declare, “I’m not doing my taxes this year!” On the count of three let’s all tear up our tax paperwork and go spend some money.

Yup, that is my new year’s resolution. Although, on second thought, if I had just spent all this time doing my taxes instead of writing this, I might be done. Oh well.


  1. Very good point Nikki. Now, go do your taxes…

  2. dude, I finally e-filed yesterday. And if I hadn’t been lazy and gotten my bank info for direct deposit, I’d be getting my refund in 8-15 days. Now I have to wait 4 stinking weeks to get my dang check.
