Was reminded today was tax day by reading an article about pizzas selling for $10.40. I’ve been sort of out of the Tax Day loop since we started having an accountant prepare our taxes, and that’s just fine with me; we pay an accountant so we can be out of the loop (well, I can be out of the loop; Krissy, aka “the competent one” remains as loop-engaged as ever). And our accountant, bless her heart, sent over all the forms and etc weeks ago.
Overall, it was not a bad tax year for us. We ended up in the hole by a not-entirely-trivial amount, but that amount was also less than I expected (I made a bit more in 2005 than 2004, so I figured on a larger tax bite) so overall I was pretty happy. I am once again reminded that one of the nice things about being a reviewer and commentator, and someone who works from home, is that so much of my life ends up being tax-deductible. That includes this here Web site, since it’s directly connected to my writing business, and because it is a source of income for me (those occasional reprints of the Whatever, not to mention selling Agent to the Stars to a publisher last year). Hooray for teh Intarweebs!
How’s your tax day going?
