Taxes. *yawn*. What an absolute bore, right? How many of us wait till the very last minute to pay them? I see a lot of hands raised. April 15th—that dreadful day. You think I was any different? My hand was raised too! You don’t have to be ashamed because there are a lot of us out there. Did you know that more than half the population does not pay taxes? Yep. I was one of them too. I hated doing my taxes, fretted every second while doing them and when finally, I did manage at the very last minute, I put it off till the last minute again. Rinse and repeat. It was a never ending cycle! Paying taxes makes a lot of people very, very nervous (like me!).
But you know what? It doesn’t have to be like that. Instead of worrying about taxes, you should be happy to be paying them because of the plethora of advantages that you get. I had a long chat with a couple of my “responsible” friends and they shared their wisdom with me. I’m going to tell you what they told me.
