Thoughts About March

 

March 15--the "ides of March"--used to be the date when our income taxes were due. That has changed, but most of us (including me) like to have our material to our accountant well before the current due date of April 15. Interesting thought occurred to me as I gathered the information. Since I started my solo practice of medicine more than half a century ago, I have gone through five accountants! It's not that I'm a difficult client. I just literally wore out that many. That should tell me (and anyone else paying attention) that I'm too old for this foolishness. Unfortunately, the IRS doesn't agree.

Things have been sort of hectic around our place. We've had both the "grand-dogs" develop problems that required them to be put down. Fortunately, there was a puppy (another "rescue" dog) waiting between number one and two's departure. I suspect that there will be another one soon, and the quota of dogs at the home of two of my granddaughters will be filled once more. But for now, there are some tears.

Other than that, not much is new. Well, I am pondering something that I may be ready to share with you. Come back Friday and we'll see if it jells by then.

Awww, I'm so sorry about the granddogs. Losing pets is so hard. But glad you rescued one! Okay...I hope your idea jells by Friday...I'm not particularly patient...

As for taxes...I just got all my checks into my computer program, so next week after the MidSouth Christian Writers Conference, I'll be pulling all my material together for my CPA. So far I've only worn out one. lol

Patricia, if you've only worn out one accountant, you obviously haven't been doing this long enough.

We love our four-legged family members, don't we. As for taxes, I'd be willing to pay MORE if the system were simple and easy to understand!

Simple? Easy to understand? Hey, this is the government we're talking about..
