God, I’m such a slacker for not getting to this post sooner. I didn’t file my taxes until April 13th.
The reason is simple: I OWE MONEY
When I owe money I wait until the last possible moment to file. But I don’t want to wait until the 15th, just in case something goes wrong with logging in, ect.
I worked up my taxes in February. And because of the fact that my community college didn’t take out any federal taxes (this has been rectified, fyi) I owe $512 to the federal government, and have a refund from the state of $120.
I am planning on paying the federal amount with my emergency fund. And replenishing with the state refund. My E-fund will be around $400 lower, but that’s okay. It will get to $5,000 soon enough.
I feel like a bad personal finance blogger for not talking about this before hand. But I’ve just let it shift to the back of my mind. I have so many different forms now that I’m so afraid that I’ve forgot one! A little bit unnerving, really.
Alas, another tax season is upon us. I heard that performers have to file taxes in every state they performed a concert in. OH MY WORD would that be awful! Good thing they hire people to take care of that stuff for them!
