Tax Time and Meat Loaf
I’m sitting at my desk, eating the last of my frozen meatloaf. I found the recipe on-line and, if you like the taste of ketchup, it’s great. But it’s all I can afford.
Making a sandwich seemed so…taxing. Which reminds me that I have to itemize my taxes again this year, just as I’ve been doing since 1997.
It never gets easier, but this year I can take off the cost of my new Windows 10 computer that I didn’t want. You know…the one that was more expensive than my green Jeep.
Since my income circles “destitute” like a vulture eying it’s prey, I’ll probably have no more than the self-employment tax to pay.
Most people can fill out the one-page form, and send it in. My taxes are completed by a tax accountant, which isn’t cheap. Every year I ask the accountant to skip over anything that isn’t absolutely, positively deductible.
Thus, the reason why I can’t get an earned income credit, which is no good if you’re called into an audit. Those things can be expensive.
I do have one question:
Not that there is more than one voice in my head, but GUE (God, the Universe and Everything) isn’t talking to me today.
What a perfect time to do more editing!
