I am just now sitting down to do our 2009 Income Tax Returns. What I do in years like this is send Revenue Canada, 'scuse me, "The CRA" two whopping cheques. They get to play with our money* for a few months, and then I claim all or most of it back -- and they owe me! Bwaahhaaahahhhhaaaaaa!
The important thing if late is to get your payment in on time -- to avoid penalties and nasty threats of dark possibilities if you are late filing in subsequent tax years.
My goal is to get the returns done by Friday without screaming. If you open your laptop some morning this week and it emits either a sharp, shrill cry, or a plaintive moan followed by indistinct gurgles, that will be me.
* Like paying Canada Post employees to mis-re-direct our re-mis-directed mail and G20 police to arrest innocents while watching the perps, you know, trash their police cars and vandalize and loot...
