Hmmm...I get to post on Tax Day...

Taxes iz paid...and I iz broked...

Guess I need to have more tax taken out of my retirement...trouble is, they don't take out for State tax. Sigh. Either way, I still owe every year.  Never used to when I was working...then I retired and lucky me! If I break even on my book sales, or make a little profit, I end up with self-employment taxes, too.  Being in the 99% sucks!  If I only had a few more million bucks in earnings each year, I might not have to pay taxes at all.  Sigh.  Sob...snif...

Been sick as heck for a week or more.  Don't have enough energy to write much. Hope you are all well, and the IRS didn't take too much of a bite.

Hugs...

Hope you're feeling better soon, Fran.

Now to those nasty taxes. You want to owe at the end of the year rather than getting a big fat refund. Why? Because with a refund you're allowing the IRS to hold your funds interest free. It's better to put that dough in the bank and earn what interest you can. I know, I know, it's not a lot but it's better than nothing.

My tax gal has told me the above for years. Try to break even on tax day or owe a little, rather than hope for an interest free refund. :)

Fran, I feel your pain about taxes. 2011 will be the first year I have to pay a self-employment tax. Not looking forward to it.

Sorry you're sick. Hope you feel better.
