In fairness, my taxes weren’t too bad this year. I had tracked my expenses, I had all my forms, and I have enough saved where I could pay it all at once. You could buy a crappy car with the amount I had to fork over. Maybe I could have gotten on a payment plan but I just wanted it over with, like ripping off a Band-Aid. The issue is that it’s harder when part of the price tag comes from your old job that let you go, and you have limited funds to begin with thanks to unemployment. And considering all the other stuff I had to deal with in April (the stuff that kept me from updating) it’s just one more thing I didn’t want to deal with.
