It's tax filing time. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
But I'm a big fan of the horror genre. And I'm a tax geek.
A quick show of hands from those who scan tax publications during The Walking Dead commercials? You are my peeps! (Is that slang still used? Sorry, I digress.)
But let's be honest. Taxes and tax season scare the crap out of many of us.
That's OK. Just don't let your tax fears, both irrational or completely justified, take over this time of year.
If you're in a hurry because you just want to get that 1040 filled out and outta here, you could make some costly tax mistakes.
Instead, take a look at my story on six common tax terrors. They are:
- Afraid I can't do my taxes myself.
- Afraid I'll overlook a tax break.
- Afraid I'll make a mistake that will cost me money.
- Afraid that my tax adviser is incompetent or a crook.
- Afraid I'll get audited.
- Afraid to file because I can't pay.
The article also offers some advice on how you can overcome these fears. So check it out.
The sooner you conquer your tax fears, the sooner you can focus on other important things, such as coming up with ways to help Rick and crew bring down the reprehensible Governor and his lackeys.
