Tax Day 2012: The Good, The Bad, and the FREE…

So as we wind down to Tax Time this year, a few things to remember (if you’re like me and still looking at the pile of paperwork going, “man I need to get to that soon”) it’s time to quickly look at…

The Good:
We get a couple extra days to file taxes this year. Instead of the traditional “April 15th” date, we are actually allowed to get them in by April 17th, which means 48 more hours of procrastination…woo hoo!!!

The Bad:
I’ll let you fill in your own list here…

The Free:
There are a LOT of FREEBIES that are starting to become available in an effort to make the tax season not nearly as bad as it normally is. Check out the list and the dates available and enjoy. After all, we only do this once a year. 😀
