Its Tax Day. Almost.


Where every taxpayer IS, while doing their taxes! (Craig Allen photo)

Its April 15th. Tax Day. Usually…

This year, 2012, we have til Tuesday April 17th to get those tax forms postmarked. Why the extra time? Today, April 15th is a Sunday. And tomorrow, April 16th, is “Emancipation Day,” a holiday in Washington D.C.

I always say that I’m going to get my taxes done early. But, somehow, I always end up putting off the chore til just before the due-date!

The “most taxing” year for me (literally and figuratively) was somewhere in the mid-1990s.  I had to fill out my federal tax forms. Plus New Jersey. Plus New York State, and New York City (city use tax). On top of that, I was missing forms! I spent plenty of last-minute time talking with accountant friends, asking tough questions, and then crossing my fingers. That year, I drove to the post office, and got everything postmarked at about 11:45pm.  Talk about “last-minute!” I thought my head was going to explode! And, thats when I realized that it, literally, did not pay to have several jobs, in several states.  Especially, when those states did not have tax reciprocity with New Jersey!

The tax-filing clock is ticking! Use your “extra” time wisely!

"Its in the mail!" I'm done. How about YOU? (Craig Allen photo)
