Tonight I worked on the Michigan Sales Tax form for my business that I need to send in by the 28th. A couple of years ago when it was a leap year I mistakenly sent it in on the 29th, thinking it was due on the last day of February. Wrong. I not only lost the discount you get when you pay on time but I also got a penalty. It was just a smidgen but just the same, it was pretty stupid on my part.
So now the form is done and copied and I only need to write the check for the sales tax. This is the easy part. Doing the full taxes is always a challenge. It requires complete silence. That means NO Kevin allowed. I have to do the taxes when he's not home. Maybe I'll get to that early next month. I think I'll do it on the 12th. I get my bonus from work that day so I'll be in a good mood!
