Taxes, Ick!

Not as bad as the federal income tax return but I still dread doing the paperwork to get my state sales taxes done. I usually get it done a few weeks early, but this time I am at the deadline. Subconsciously, I must have known there was going to be a problem, and sure enough there was - an outstanding invoice from September. Ugh, now it's going to be fun to collect.

But it's all done now, and I have a new year's resolution after all I guess. I need a better accounting system. In the past, I just kept copies of outstanding invoices on my desk, but with all the moving around and shuffling of paperwork this year, neither Hubby or I realized that this invoice hadn't been paid.

If you have a system that works well, I'm all ears.



  1. I can't offer a system because I'm just as bad. However, our state taxes are not that involved. And we have until April 15th to get them in order. I usually do those first as they are quite simple for us. It's those dreaded federal taxes I hate.

    1. We don't have a state income tax. This is for state sales tax we have collected and have to pay in. It has to be postmarked by Jan. 22.

  2. I was wondering what taxes were do now - I see it's your sales tax.

  3. Mine were really easy this year - zero sales. We simply didn't fo any shows, so ... Not the best way to have easy taxes!
