[IMGCAP(1)]Every year it happens…and yet every year I’m surprised.

March 15th creeps up and then runs me over like a freight train. The March deadline is always more stressful than the April 15th Individual date, but this year it got worse. With all the IRS issues and delayed filings, I seriously wonder if the post-March 15 tax season will recover. If not, I simply hang on to the fact that we have only four more weeks (give or take a day or two) until tax season is over.

Until then, my glass of wine will keep me going. That’s wine…not whine (though I feel like a good whine this year). It’s up to you which one will get you through. Wine or whine, anyone?
