Are You a Taxcrastinator?
Yeah, I still haven’t filed my taxes.
Normally I don’t file until very close to (or even on the day of) the deadline with good reason, because I have to wait for one particular form that isn’t even due to me until the 15th.
But this year I have no excuse. The form came early, and since then I’ve been busy procrastinating on my taxes. The papers are piled on the desk, some were discovered recently behind the dog’s crate, and the wind blew a few to the floor the other day.
The price of procrastinating — especially with the related paperwork spread all over creation — can’t be good. The nagging feeling of one more thing left undone is starting to get to me.
I have at least started our taxes. In fact, they’re nearly done. But for some reason I don’t seem to spend the last hour or so it might take to finish up the federal return.
Are you a habitual procrastinator when it comes to your taxes? Or are you an early bird, whipping them out as soon as possible? Or maybe you fall somewhere in between.
What’s your best motivational tip for just getting them done?
