I am amazed at how many of my friends are still working on their taxes. Guys, don’t you realize what kind of lines you will have to wait in to get things mailed? I’m especially amazed at the people who are hoping to get everything done over their lunch hour today. Seems like a bad idea to wait that long.
I know a number of people who mailed them off yesterday. After all, if you owe money, why pay it any earlier than you have to? Of course, in my opinion, I just want my taxes done. Maybe I owe money, maybe I’m getting it back, but I just like having them done and not having to worry about forgetting or losing the paperwork or some other disaster.
So what kind of a tax person are you? Did you do your taxes the moment you got your last form? Did you put it off as long as possible? Are you planning to be in line at the post office after work tonight? And did you make your decision on when to file based on whether you owed money or would be getting money back?
