Taxes...

So, having given myself three days off last week to recuperate - three days which I spent reading, puttering about the garden, and watching piles of DVDs - I've returned to the terrible world of ... TAXES!

>.<

I *hate* doing my taxes.

Because I have a business, I have to do both the private *and* the business taxes in detail. Which means I take my bank statements, and the *huge* pile of accumulated receipts and printouts, and try to match them up. Each line in the bank statement has to be backed with a receipt and an explanation of where this goes, or why it was booked. You'd think that in the age of computers you wouldn't need all this paper anymore, but no, the Internal Revenue Department wants to see it *all*. >.< And Gods help you if you can't explain an expenditure.

So I'm sitting here with four binders, a big box of small receipts, and a mobile file holder on my desk, working my way through line after line of bank statement. I'm only halfway through the private account.

*THEN* comes the fun part: the business account. *headdesk*

I *hatehatehate* taxes... >.>

Wow, ours were due back in April! I hate doing taxes so badly, that we ended up having to hire it done. >_> Too damn complicated with the kid and her school and work and being 21 now.
Good luck with them! I hope it all goes fast and easy and you don't owe anything!

Actually, you see, *these* taxes were due last year... >.>

So... my accountant isn't happy with me. My local IRS office isn't happy with me. And I'm not happy with me. >.<

I *have* to get this done! I don't want to *see* this stuff anymore.

I should have it done by the end of the weekend. I hope.

That's a shame
That is really a shame. I wish I lived near you since I enjoy doing taxes. Yes, I admit it. I am strange but as an accounting student who wants to run/expand her own accounting business do you really find it all that strange?

Wish I could help you. ^_^

Hugs ... and LUCK,
Becky

Re: That's a shame
Oh. Wish I had the money to send you a ticket right now! ^___^

It's the sorting and labelling that I hate the most. All these little receipts, and unaccounted for pieces of paper, and money that I withdrew but don't have receipts for, and trips that I took, and, and, and... >.<

I *hate* all the paperwork.

Wish you *could* help. I would *love* to dump it all into your lap! :):)

Thank you. *HUGS back* I'll get it done. I hope. I think. ^__^

Re: That's a shame
I'd offer to do your receipts for you but there is still the problem of getting them to me. I did receipts for a previous boss/client of mine while she still had her business going -- I thoroughly enjoyed it, especially since she paid me to do them monthly for her; business and household receipts.

Good luck! ^_^

Hugs,
Becky
