  3. I hate it, too. People have money & prices rise. -_-
  4. I'd love to spend my tax return on bass gear this year but I need a car (which the return won't pay for, but I'll at least have something in the car fund...)

    Californian here. I love tax time! Two years ago bought a truck using the refund as down payment, and last year it was a brand new DB. This year is maintenance on the truck.
    Then again, no wife, no kids, no real estate, good job and claim zero all year.

    I am not fond of tax season either. I feel your pain.

    You guys get money back ? Sometimes I hate being self employed.

    Normally, tax time is pretty lame, but this year the wife basically said "take the tax check, buy whatever you need, and let's be done with bass gear for a while."

    Offer accepted! WooHoo! I really love that woman...:D
  11. Don't know if this helps, but I have a feeling that "Blonde" Jazz is actually an aged Olympic White.

    When things like this happens to me (and they seem to happen all too frequently), the only thing to do is mutter something unprintable under my breath, and chalk it up to punishment for sins in a previous existence. :D
  16. Just curious why you do it that way. You're essentially giving the government an interest free loan all year long.

    That Sabre Bass is too pricey anyway.

    I have no problem with that. I use the services that the government provides, and it gives a me a nice little bonus check at the end of the year. This way I also NEVER run the risk of having to cut them a check in the beginning of the year. I realize that I could save the $50 per check in my own account and earn money off of the interest. I however don't want to deal with the increased amount of paperwork that would entail. For me and my situation my current method works great. I also like the fact that I can get my W2, do a 1040EZ right then and there at my desk in 20 minutes, and have the money direct deposited 7 days later.

    Having to come up with their pound of flesh on the same schedule as everyone else does create bargains.

    In NJ it's done quarterly. I hope it isn't snowing tomorrow because it's getting close for me.

    It's due the 1st but they allow me a couple days slack.
