Re: Taxes

There used to be two signs at every quick print shop in the country. Maybe they are still there. One said
Cheap. Fast. Good. Pick two.
the other said
Poor planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on ours.

On this year's tax day, I would like to tape that to all the monitors here. Maybe staple it to a few foreheads.

For the record: No tax advice shall come from my mouth. Here are the forms. Here is the extension form for the state and here is the Federal. I don't know how the efiling doohickey works, nor can I help you apply for an extension online. I don't even do my own taxes. We* give all our info to helpful and well-remunerated professionals.

* We is actually my partner who gathers up all our financial information. It is we only in the sense that I benefit from it. I do only slightly more work on our taxes than does our 5-year-old son.

thanks, servidores.

Now I just need to learn Portuguese and develop an interest in IBM servers. I wonder how automated servidores is? Can you have a bot go through all blogs one by one and post this comment hoping to get some page impressions? Hey, I fell for it and even clicked on a few ads. So there, servidor, your automated system works.

My entire library career (all four years of it) I've gagged down the impulse to say "Lack of planning on your part does not equal an emergency on my part." Perhaps that was the wrong approach?
