Tax Season Tension

This morning I decided to organize myself as I finally found myself with a Saturday with nothing planned and no errand to run.  So here I am faced with a folder of paper to organize.  Oh no.  Where to begin?

I get my wits about me and try to recall what I did in the past, before all bills were online and not all tax forms were mailed to you.  This was a good place to start.  I started a list of what forms I needed and what deductions I needed to computer.  A general list was forming in my mind:  house, bank, job, charities, business expenses…. and then my organizing began its flow.

Every year we always fear leaving something out of the pile for our accountant coupled with the fear that we many not receive any money back from the government.  That was always like a bonus for the year in anticipation of a house project or maybe a long awaited vacation.

So, like I did this morning, take a deep breath and start making piles and lists.  That is my life as a teacher, as a writer and now as a tax preparer.

Good luck with your tax returns this year.  Here’s hoping everyone gets a deserved refund that can add to the quality of your life.
