Mr. Serious has been bugging me about finishing up our taxes. He was waiting for my income from Krizzy Designs.
I didn’t want to do them. I knew it wasn’t going to go well.
Nobody withholds your taxes for you when you are your own employer.
I had grand dreams. Dreams that included something new and fancy.
A combination “your business is doing well” and “Happy 30th birthday!” gift/prize/reward.
That, my bloggy friends is a beautiful Mac Book Pro.
(Like I needed to tell you all that.)
That was my dream.
And as we completed our taxes, the refund got smaller quickly, and then after one entry, jumped to a “federal taxes owed” amount.
Then, that amount grew and grew.
So now, instead of a nice business purchase and birthday present, we wrote a freakishly large, ridiculously huge check to Uncle Sam (I kid you not, almost the exact amount of that Mac Book Pro).
Dear Uncle Sam. You are welcome. Ever heard of the Fair Tax? Just saying…
One day, I will get a piece of the apple company in my home.
In the meantime, I have a feeling we just purchased an overpriced binder for a government official. Because we know the government is sooo good at spending money and making reasonable purchases.
But, but, but…we are getting a $46 refund from the state of Georgia.
What should I do with that?
