taxes: AUGH

April 10th, 2009 (03:48 pm)

So, last year was my first doing consulting work. As I was new to the whole thing and started partway through the year, I didn't get the taxes right, so I have a hefty bill this year. Ugh. But wait, it gets better! I also have to pay the first quarter's worth of my taxes on April 15.

Which comes out to about the same thing as the aforementioned bill from *last* year.

So, um. Yeah.

Fortunately the exchequer remains healthy, and I have an invoice that's about to go out, but still, HOLY CRAP.

Ah, yes. Quarterly taxes are so much fun, aren't they? I remember one of my fellow residents complaining, after we all started to moonlight for extra cash, "I did this to pay off my credit cards and now I owe all this money on my taxes!"

To which I responded, "Put your taxes on your credit card and start all over again."

I thought it was funny. She didn't.
