It’s that time of year we all look forward to with such excitement. Its a time when those of us who itemize bring out the boxes of receipts that have been accumulated through the year. Such a grand time it is to spend your afternoon separating, labeling each and every one, most of which are so faint that you can barely read them, because the gas stations and restaurants are too cheap to change the ink cartridge in their cash register or whatever it is they use. Charcoal would be more readable. Total them up three or four times and your finished. The CPA can do the rest.
Hopefully we won’t owe any more than we have already paid in, but you never know. That’s the excitement of it. It’s a waiting game. Did we break even, win a prize, or do I owe my kidney?
