Have I ever mentioned that I hate the process of filing taxes. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE getting a return and being able to spend all, or some of it on something fabulous is like winning the lottery, but the process of finding all the information, adding it all in, and the tireless entry of stock sales is BORING and exhausting to me. I just want it to be done and over with. Now to think that I have an accounting degree from the University of MN, it's quite funny how I hate this stuff. Part of it is intriguing watching the Turbo Tax program calculate the amount you owe and owe and owe while you enter your income and then watching that red OWE number flip over to GREEN when you get to the deductions is like watching all the fruit line up on your slot machine. But it takes far too long to get to the payout and when you have one weird thing to enter that you're not sure you're entering correctly (like how we sold stock this year to make a down payment on the Jetta)....UGH! It is frustrating. Nevertheless it's something that has to be done and the sooner the better I guess. We've been putting this off for a few weeks now and I'm ready to just have it done. While we still have questions outstanding on the sale of the stock....it'll be nice to be done with this for the evening. So far it looks as if we will get a refund. Let's hope so, so we can buy something fabulous...like a vacation?? :)
