I'm delaying filing my income tax until the last minute...we owe a tidy sum over and above what has already been paid. I've always done our taxes myself...well, Turbo Tax and I. Then last year I got a notification and a bill from the IRS for taxes due. I had managed to mess up on our 2012 taxes. I went to an accountant to help me sort it out. This year I just took the file with all my receipts directly to the accountant. Whatever it costs, it's the price I pay for peace of mind. There is a part of me that is relieved to hand the task off to someone else, and a part of me that is irritated that the process has become so complex and high stakes that I can't do it myself. But, tomorrow I will write the check and send it off and forget all about income taxes until next year.
