PWHM Series: Part 1

Welcome to the introduction of a new series, dear Readers, the first edition of our special report:

People Who Hate Me

Part 1: My Accountant
I'm pretty sure that my accountant hates me because I am sending her the docs to do my 2008 tax return today. Yep, that's right. She's getting 1 week to do my return.*

I'm not even certain if I have all the necessary docs in the package that I'm sending to her. I'm feeling pretty guilty about it, but I figure 1) better some info than none, and 2) better late than never.

There are some things that I am really on the ball about and some things where I utterly am not. When it comes to taxes, the ball is on another continent. I am not on it, under it, over it or in it.

I have good intentions for our 2009 taxes though. I got a green box at the Container Store to store all my financials papers in so they'll all be in one place. My goal is to get all the information (except for the company docs) into the accountant by April, 2010.


*Due to the way that finances are calculated in the company for which I work, I am not able to file my tax returns till October 15th, even though most returns in the US are due April 15th.

LOL! That is funny. I totally had issues with my taxes a few years back...um, lets just say I tried to do it myself and it didn't work out. I put it off, and that was insane b/c I was due a refund. LOL!!! Good luck with the box!

FIL2 used to be an accountant, and as a wedding gift to hubby and I, he did hubby's back taxes (from 1996) and paid all the fees because FIL2 had been neglecting doing it.

You'd better not feature me in one of these series! It would be incorrect. ;)

My dad applies for multiple extensions EVERY YEAR and last year did three years worth of back taxes. Yet, he refuses to hire a professional. My poor mother.

You don't seem bad at all, to me. :)

LOL! I also have been known to live by the "better late than never" motto from time to time! Hope it goes smoothly!

This will be my new favorite series, second only to: 'I Might Kill You'

Taxes suck. I gladly pay someone to do that shit.

Oh boy I would hate that (not you), but not getting them until so late.
