How does January 31 sneak up so quickly on me every year?
I mean, really. Before Christmas I got all – and I do mean all – my personal bills in envelopes, tallied, and ready for just the last bills. My BUSINESS stuff, well, not so much. There’s a pile there waiting to be filed. And, of course, miscellaneous income 1099s and the business personal property tax filings are due 1/31 and 2/1, respectively. Oh, my.
And, inevitably, my week before the due date is chock-full of work. Daily copy stuff, regular transcription, my own reporting. Somehow I will find a way to file all this stuff, run the reports, confirm my ownership of stuff. But, really, couldn’t we just wait until February 15th? Is it too much to ask?
