We always file on time and thankfully, get money back. But oddly, the refund is roughly the same amount that we owe in property tax. Plus, this installment of property tax is due on or before April 10, further encouraging us to file taxes early. Oh, and another thing. The first installment is always due on or before December 10 - just in time for the holidays!! Ugh. Isn't that funny?
On a different subject - not that I think anyone will read this - but if you've made it this far (thank you!) please vote. Just do it. If you haven't registered, duh, do that first. If you have registered already, you're halfway there! Don't forget to vote - in your local, state and of course this year, the national election. Check these numbers out. Even if you think you're throwing your vote away on someone or something that has a crap chance of winning - VOTE.
