    It's February & even though the minds of many here may be on Sunday's big game in Dallas, April 15 is closing in.

    Have you sent in or had your accountant send in the forms yet or are you planning to wait until the last minute or even file late or maybe not file at all?

    I have my home base in Austria. There is no deadline...so I might do my 2010 taxes in March or June or maybe August.

    There are these guys, these two guys . . . well, one of them is actually a woman, and I just make sure all tax-related documents go to them and then they send me PDF files I print out, attach the appropriate checks and mail them.

    Life is too short to worry about things like scrubbing floors and preparing taxes. I let other's worry about those things for me -- for a fair price.

    I filed about a week ago. It would have been sooner, but there was a delay in getting one of my tax forms sent to me.

    Can you imagine what life would be like if we only had to file once a year? The time and money I would save in unnecessary impromptu travel expenses, international phone calls, and CPA retainer fees!!! What a world THAT would be.

    There's no set in stone answer silly it's an open space for whatever approach a being might have.

    I don't file and haven't for years as I live abroad and have my business in a free-zone. Therefore my income and corporate taxes are minimal.

    But I am taxed 18 percent on every cent I spend in country. Which sucks.

    Already filed and got my refund. And yes, I already spent it: paying down the debt on my AmEx.

    Because I need the refund ASAP, I can't procrastinate.

    Unfortunately.

    So it's on the "to do by Friday, <NCbear>!" list.
