This is how I spent my evening!


Oh, how we laughed! Self employment taxes have to be filed here by January 31. I won’t owe anything — I don’t make enough — but I still have to go through this dreary ritual.

Actually, not true. I should owe a bit to National Insurance. It told me I did while I was working through the forms. Then I got all done and they didn’t ask me for any money.

I feel like I’m waiting for a trap to spring…

Do you have some U.K. equivalent of ‘TurboTax’ software, or do you an Uncle Badger have to gnaw your pencils to sharp points and do the math on paper?

I was never any good at doing maths, so when it comes to doing my taxes, I feel like Blanche DuBois in that, “I have always depended on the accuracy of others.”

If the revenuers come after you perhaps you could
pay them with dessicated cat hairballs? Worth a try…

Owl pellets are worth more.

I go apeshit at tax time. Really. The husband and I live in taxachusset. Ours should be a simple tax form. We make good bank, but we don’t own anything and we don’t owe anything. Should be simple. Our MA tax return is 27 pages. I kid you not. Hell even our fed return is only 2 pages. My tax bill between the feds and state is larger than the GDP of most of the shithole nations…combined. Or maybe it just seems that way because of all the numbers and pages.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
