Just a little (link) love: tax deadlines edition
April 2, 2014
We’ve been extra busy the past few weekends with work and not-work; it’s only going to get worse as I’m staring down the barrel of April 15th. I’m going to have to file for an extension again and it gives me hives that that hasn’t been settled yet.
After spending hours sorting through our paperwork, though, it’s finally time to admit that this is no longer even a little bit fun, and it’s time to hire a professional. The moment that decision was made, it felt like a metric ton of stress was lifted off my shoulders – though a bit prematurely since I’ve not yet actually hired said professional or turned everything over yet.
