So we all have something that scares us or that we fear, maybe its heights, clowns, online banking, blood and guts, whatever it is---we all have something that to us logically scares us--and to the rest of the world, it might look a little illogical. Well mine, is doing my own taxes; and letting someone else do them. Silly? Let me explain. I have done my own taxes since I started working when I was 15, and I'm, well doesn't really matter, but let's just say I've done my own taxes for over 1/2 of my life. I don't even think anyone has ever seen my W-2s besides me. So this year, the hubs asked if we wanted to do our taxes together and send them off to the accountant (inside I'm thinking...deep breath, deep breath, don't hyperventilate), someone else will see my W-2s? I'll give them somebody I've never even met? WHAT? Does that come with a chain of custody? I am freaking out! But after many tears and a couple of anti-anxiety pills, I say OK, and plop them into an envelope (and seal and tape it).
So we get our taxes back from the tax man today, and my name is incorrect. Hmph. Was my gut instinct correct? Should I have listened to my gut saying "don't do it, don't do it"? Hmmm. If this blog was food for thought, it'd be a buffet :-)
