Tax Day Yearly Debacle

Hello.  This is The Daily Bone and I'm your austere and fiscally responsible 
doggie reporter Chester L. W. Stephens. 




Today is a serious and ominous day in the United States of America. Today is Tax Day! That means the humans should be finished with the complicated task of figuring out how much money they owe the government based on last year’s income. From what I’ve heard, tax day is almost as bad as the end of the world (again.) People stay up all night, scrambling to get the paperwork done, ruining their health from the stress of it all, drinking large amounts of caffeinated beverages, or just as much alcoholic ones, and then waiting in long lines at the Post Office in order to get all that mess mailed out to the IRS. Some people will have to pay the government more money, and some will get a refund, depending on a myriad of diabolically contrived factors.




I recently did an inventory of all my squeaky toys. Do I have to include the ones I received as gifts? For example, as you might remember, Professor Braydie Spiker passed away and bequeathed to me a whole box of wonderful, amazing, delightful, fascinating squeaky toys from her personal top secret paranormal squeaky toy research archives. My humans are holding most of them in a trust fund so that I don’t dissect, unstuff, and chew them all up at once. In fact, I don’t even know how many there are and what they’re worth. Perhaps I shouldn’t have even mentioned this. What if the IRS decides to audit me? What about the big bag of tennis ball my Jason human got for me? There’s no way the IRS can prove I had them, is there? You know what? This is rather nerve wracking. And that's a memo.


Maybe I need to file for an extension.

  9. Phew, here in Denmark we can do everything about tax digitally. So it was easy for mom to send it all in to the tax office at the beginning of March.

  11. Doing the taxes can be really frustrating, especially when you're far from finished with computations on the day of the deadline. That being said, we should remind ourselves to do the taxes ahead of time so as to avoid being frantic on the last day. In any way, thanks for sharing this! Good luck with doing the inventory, Chester! Have a great day!
