ummm, i have a confession to make.
i haven’t done my taxes yet.
mostly I’m scared that I’ll have to pay $3 million (ish) to get them done because aside from my federal taxes, like four states are involved. (for those who don’t know, i lived in iowa, south dakota and wisconsin in 2008 and also lived in illinois while working in iowa).
my secret plan was to do an article for my paper about places to get taxes done free and then get my taxes done free and one of the places.
but i had a mistake about capital gains in the article and there was a ‘thing’ with the woman at the free tax center where she didn’t want to give me her name for the interview and i had to be kind of condesending to her (note: hey dorks, if you want a reporter to ever USE anything you give them, you have to give them you’re stupid name. dorks.).
i refuse to pay a private citizen to do ANYthing required of me by the government, so NO! I won’t be going to handrblock or jacksonhewitt or even janedoeaccounting.
this has all resulted in me not getting my taxes done.
my new plan is to suck it up and call the free tax center. and disguise my voice. and go by my middle name.
im thinking the lady probably forgot me anyway so it shouldn’t be a big deal. right?
UPDATE: umm, i think i just did my taxes with turbo tax online. except they told me to print something and i don’t have a printer, so that might be a problem later….
