Unfortunately, this year I owed taxes.  It was nothing too horrendous, but it’s still not fun to have to pay.  Plus, while I was doing my taxes it fluctuated a lot.  I put in my earnings for the University, and then for when I was a contractor, and it was telling me I was going to get $1200 back.  Then I put in for my new job, and all the sudden I owe $400.  Boo!

Oh well, next year should be better since I won’t be changing jobs midway through.

But anyways, why I’m writing about this is because I thought I forgot to date the check I sent in (along with date the 1040 form).  This was because I had it all ready to go, and was waiting around for the 7th (payday), before sending it in.  Turns out I either dated both, which I’m almost 100% sure I didn’t, or the government just doesn’t care, since the check just cleared.

And isn’t it funny how quickly they’ll cash your check, but how long it takes for you to receive your refund?  Hmmm…

Update 4/14
Looking at the scanned in check, I definitely didn’t date it, which means I definitely didn’t date my tax return either.  Oh well, doesn’t look like it matters.
