My days move faster and faster. I need to get things ready for our tax preparation and I haven’t even gone through last years records and set up my folders for this year. I have sewing that I would prefer to do — actually, ANYTHING would be preferable to pulling tax stuff together.

No rest for the wicked, or those who have undesirable tasks to do, so I will close with blessings to all. Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Tell those you love that you love them — take care of yourself, and know that you are loved.

About tehachap

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons and two grandsons. My hobbies include reading, writing, sewing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in G scale), and travel. My husband and I are retired and we spend our winters in Arizona. I used to own a secretarial and desktop publishing business, but closed it when my husband retired in 1999. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.

    Tax season is always a bit stressful. I feel a huge relief as soon as the packet is mailed off to our accountant. We stopped doing our own taxes years ago, when it just became too complicated. Now I just keep one folder for the current year and slide in any tax related documents. This has helped a bit with the preparation for tax season.

      I have folders set up, one for each month, and at the end of the year, I pull everything out of the folders, leaving them empty for the next year’s documents. I sort all of the receipts/records and pull tax material as I sort. Some of the documents get filed away, and others will go as supporting documents for our tax return. A couple of years ago, we were in AZ and I had our tax lady request an extension — I don’t really like to do that, however. as it really puts pressure on me when we come back home and I know the taxes are due. I prefer to get them done on time — out of sight, out of mind!
