    I have a coffee table full of tax papers that need to be done. I want to sew but I'm feeling guilty about it because I have this looming chore to do.

    Here I sit reading the Quilting Board.

    Somebody kick me!!!!!

    I couldn't sew for a week, I was having "Taxology attacks"
    best friend came over and in no time we had it filed. What a relief! The only antidote for it is to do it! Now!Go!

    get those taxes done - you may end up getting a refund.

    Refund = funds for fabric!!!

    (Finger wagging) Get off that computer RIGHT NOW and get those taxes done! As soon your done you can have a big chocolate treat and plug your sewing machine back in. (Hands on Hips) Now, get busy!

    (Did that help?) :-)

    Haha. You were probably one of the few people hoping for a Federal shutdown so the IRS would be closed!

    Better get em done. You don't want to pay a penalty. You might get a refund, then you can buy more fabric.

    Even IF they were closed, you would still need to file ON TIME, and pay any taxes due ON TIME. The shut down would just delay any refunds coming back to us.

    See if you have a friend that can help you. If not, then just start, dig in, get them finished. I think the hardest part sometimes is just getting started. So just start.

    You'll be so much happier. Then reward yourself with sewing and QB computer time. Yeah!!

    That's why I hire an accountant! Even so, it takes a *lot* for me to gather all the documents needed for the accountant to do the return.

    Gradually I'm getting better. Used to turn everything in the week before the deadline. This year I was a month early. Maybe next year.......

    If you are sure of getting a refund, you can file for an extension -- very easy, just one page. Even if you owe, you can file for an extension as long as you send in money to cover what you owe. This gives you an extra 3 months to get your act together for filling out the return. However, I do *not* recommend this! It just means it will be hanging over your head that much longer.

    Are your taxes finished yet? Are you still sitting here? I have a really big foot. lol Gently sending you toward the tax papers waiting to be done!

    I have mine done. I don't know a thing about how to do it so just let someone else do it. Much less stressful!

    Good Luck on getting them done so you can sew and read the QB!!

    OK, OK.... it's now 3:27 pm and I have everything sorted out and ready to be taken in.

    I do take them to someone to be done, but I have 3 peoples taxes to be sorted out. Ours, my fathers and my sons...

    I am very organized... throughout the year I have a folder that I put everything that is related to taxes in one place.

    I also have a ton of medical stuff between my husband and my father... so.. 2 more folders.

    But... I'm now all sorted out and ready to go.

    Thanks all!

    Now I can sew!!!!

    Janet My - the sooner you get taxes done, the sooner you can get back to quilting & sewing. If you get a refund, that's more money for the stash fund. :)
