April 15th, 2012the tax man cometh
We started having to pay estimated taxes last year, which means I have to deal with taxes four times a year instead of one. It’s utterly annoying and frankly one of the worst things about running your own business (right up there with dealing with business insurance and finagling health insurance).
April 15 now potentially requires me to write four checks. Two for estimated taxes for the current year and two for taxes from the previous year (if I didn’t pay enough in estimated taxes). This year I only have to write two, as I over-payed my state taxes and that can be rolled over to pay for the current estimated taxes, but technically I have to write eight per year, no matter what.
Eight checks to the government. Sigh. It’s painful.
