Tax time

Tax time approaches. I'm really anxious to see how things turn out this year. Some of my coworkers frequenly complain that they always have a large tax bill, so I'm hoping that's not the case. I guess it's theoretically better to pay taxes in a lump each year than have it taken out of your paycheck and thus not get any interest on that money, but I'd rather just safely know that I'm not going to owe some mystery amount to the government at the beginning of each year.

But then it's free money when you get it after tax season.

In theory you are right, but in practice it sucks ass. See, the taxman is an evil dick tickler and charges you a fine if you have to pay in past a specific amount; then you are encouraged to make quarterly estimates so that they can earn interest on your money all year.

Make enough and you get to have Alternative Minimum Tax prison-sex; the fear of which alone is unpleasant enough. I say: watch out for your corn-hole Spomey!
