So this year taxes came together in record time. Why? I’ve really been trying to keep a better grasp on numbers, but to the reports/tools of the billing system, vendors I use who have reporting on what I spent, etc. it’s still not 100% easy/perfect, but compared to years past it has been a lot easier to put together, a lot lower stress.
Let’s be honest though it’s taxes. Taxes suck. I really wish it was a matter of “You made X, you owe Y.” in my mind at least that would be so much easier because I know how much I made all things said and done, just take a day and get back to the business part.
To that end reaching out to my aunt who did/does the CPA thing, seeing if they can suggest maybe either an online service, firm, etc. maybe even just get some suggestions from them on better structuring things because I’m needing it to be easier and easier, not harder and harder – and if I can manage somehow to keep healthy growth, then too may need to change some business funds up.
16+ years doing this stuff, I’ve put my app in places in those 16+ years, worked various things, just I’m at that point where I am trying to eliminate as much stress as possible in everything as I can because there is enough stress in life to have to worry about finances? No thanks. Need to change it up.
For this tax season? I’m done. Filed, back to the grind of it all – okay that’s a lie. I am overly exhausted, thus I’m letting the kiddo sleep in till at least 10 am and then I’m going to work to chill-out a little bit. Been a low week for hours, been a slow day thus far already (praying that doesn’t change) just need a break, maybe once the Mrs. comes home I may venture out and catch a movie? Fly the drone? Dance like no one is watching? Something just not in front of this terminal.
Happy Post-Tax Day
