So, I’ve been dawdling on getting my ‘other state’ taxes printed off and mailed in. I’m getting a small refund, so it wasn’t anything to do with dread. I had printed some of the documents for my tax records, and my ink cartridge was out.
I took it on a thumb drive to someplace that was absolutely not my work, and printed it. That ink cartridge was running out. Now, I went into someplace that was not the supply/break room and got another, but I just didn’t bother with printing another. We got another for the printer at home as well, but I still hadn’t gotten around to printing it.
Yesterday, I get an email inviting me to check out this state’s e-file website. Hmmm, it looks like I can set up an account, even though I’ve been steered wrong by them before. Today I remembered to go to the site, set up an account and e-filed my taxes. I think since I’m now in their ‘virtual filers’, this could mean next year I can file them all by Turbo Tax in one fell swoop. Sweet!
See, if I would have printed them immediately, I would be waiting weeks for a check. Procrastination works.
