Thanks to the extension I filed in April, my federal and state income taxes arenít due until October 15. Thatís eleven days away, so why was I spending my Saturday doing these returns? Thinking ahead is not my strong suit, but sometimes you have to do things before the last minute. I know that October, as usual, is going to be an intense month, so I thought Iíd dedicate my Saturday to getting the tax man off my back.
As it turned out, the whole ordeal only took six inningsó er, I mean two hours. I waste two hours almost every day, unless itís the actual deadline, so this was no great loss. And I end up getting a refund of almost $300, plus my Bushwhacker rebate of $600. Thatís $900 I can really use. I could have done this months ago and had that money in hand already, but at least it should be here before Christmas.
Iím thinking of asking for another $7 billion in credit, but it seems like a bad time.
