i just got my ass kicked by the tax lady

holy shit.

this really sucks. its a good thing i got my taxes filed early, cause im going to need most of the time between now and april 30 to come up with $1600.

if ONLY i had known that i could have kept ALL my lunch receipts i would have been in far better shape. ah the joys of contract work, and being an independant.

any of you get your taxes done yet?

My dad did my taxes for me. I only worked part time last year, so I didn't earn much...which means I only get a little back. But that is a lot better than paying in, so I'm not bitching!

Bear. That sucks, but if you are contract work, they don't autmatically take money off your cheques for taxes. YOU should be putting some aside every pay. Your lucky your tax bill is only $1600.

I'll you anyway though.

Worked on them over the weekend. Now I need to take them to the tax lady. I sure hope that I don't have to pay and hopefully get a nice tax return.

I don't know how the laws are in Canada, but, at least in the U.S., there is a "Federal Tax Deposit" form, where you can withhold your own taxes for all four fiscal quarters. Unless you want to have another mess like this, I would look into it.

Done and done. I got about $1300 back. Although I did them too early because right after I filed I got one last 1099 for a measly $200 check I got from an old pension fund

They're probly going to audit me now

melon, ive got refunds the past two years since ive been working.
last year it was different, but again next year i should actually get a refund.
im only working until august in canada, and then after that things will change.

ill be able to come up with the money, its just that i was disappointed that i payed about twice as much as i was expecting to. if ONLY i had kept those stupid lunch receipts. i eat out nearly every day.

ya, that would ammount to a few hundred dollars for sure.
