Income taxes aren't THAT difficult, but they can cause a bit of stress trying to find all the proper papers. And for some reason they can cause unneccesary guilt. I'm trying to do mine up for my small business but as I enter the few meager expenses that I do have, I wonder if I'm doing it right & will they show up & beat down my door for this receipt or that receipt even though I'm quite positive its all perfectly legal. I suppose its like the feeling you get when a police officer drives by & even though you KNOW you aren't speeding or doing anything wrong, you immediately do a double-check of everything just to make sure!
So, thankfully, my good friend is a bookeeper & she was able to help me with a couple 'expense claiming' questions where I couldn't find an answer for on my own. (ie do I include the taxes or just the price without the taxes - I just didn't know!)
Well, anyways, I have a good start on them thanks to easy programs like QuickTax to help it go so much faster than the old 'pen & paper' method. I'm sure I'll have them done in no time and still be able to enjoy my birthday stress-free on Saturday!
What sort of tax filing do you have to do in your country if you aren't in Canada? I know it must be different for everyone. Is it the same time of year? Does it stress you out or are you so efficient that, unlike me, you would have had it done weeks ago?
Addendum: I just found this article on Freelancewriting.com titled :You've Filed Your Taxes, Now Organize Your Home Office! You can read the article here - its short!
