Good God I hate today. They should hand out anti-anxiety pills with your tax forms every year.
Correct me if I’m wrong – which obviously never happens – but didn’t the Founding Fathers create the United States of America because they hated taxes?
Well, taxation without representation. I don’t feel very represented right now. That might not be the whole story, but I’m a bit bitter today. The bad news is that I’m trying to file an extension which, for me, is as confusing as doing the taxes, especially when you try to file electronically, but you have to sign the form. At least that’s what the state wants me to do. That’s right after they say on their website that California residents have automatic extension periods. Unless you owe money. Or are geting a rebate. Then you don’t.
Both Federal and State tax extensions ask how much money you’re supposed to pay for 2007 on the extension form. Which, if I knew, would preclude me from filing an extension. I’m not even sure if I can spell “extension.” Now I’m thinking it might be “extention.” Now I’m far too angry to look it up.
The good news is that I’m ahead of the game. I have something like 13 hours to get this done. Then I’ll celebrate by finding an accountant to beat up.
EXCITING TAX UPDATE! I just found a way out of my quandry. I got my mom to do my taxes for me over the phone. I highly recommend anyone in the same situation to immediately call their mothers, who, like, totally know things. They can help you figure it out. I still have to file an extension, but they can totally help you with that too.
I’m still going to go out tonight and find an accountant to kick the snot out of. Because now I’m angry because I know I have to pay a bunch of money to the government. Isn’t it funny how, the older you get, the more you (shudder, gag) understand angry Republicans?
