I have such a sense of accomplishment today! You see, I am a procrastinator by nature, and tomorrow is my most dreaded day of the year, April 15, Tax Day (dum, dum dum…). Last year I finally discovered the procrastinator’s best friend – IRS Form 4868.
And so, Mr. IRS man, today I celebrate my right to legalized procrastination by E-filing an extension on the last day for filing an extension. Here’s to you, inventor of Form 4868 – a toast and a sigh of relief. Don’t think for a moment, though, that I will use my time wisely and spend the next six months diligently searching all my tax records and working on them. No, on the contrary, I will gather all my records beginning on October 10 and begin working up to that last minute deadline, finally e-filing at midnight on October 15. My mama didn’t call me “Last Minute Laura” for nothin’! But it’s ok…that’s what procrastinators do (or, as the “cool” kids say, “That’s how I roll”). 🙂
