I was so jealous of you DC & MD folk and your extra day to file that I ended up giving myself one.
Okay, my disorganization, ass-dragging and the distance from here to the closest late night post office (Merrifield? Do all of you people do e-file now? Or worse yet, PLAN AHEAD?) was so great that I wasn’t going to make it to a drop off by midnight. So, I just dropped it in the box down the street – despite being a Virginian, I’ll be filing on the 18th as well.
In actuality it won’t matter. I have the situation I so despise – being owed money by the Fed – so there’s no late filing penalties. This is the first time I’ve failed to be on time in almost twenty years of paying taxes, though, and it feels kinda weird. I’m sure soon the sense of exhilaration will set in and it’ll be a short downward slide to heroin, bank robbery and tearing the tags off mattresses.
