Of course, the reason I had to extend is because I do not have final numbers on one of my companies, so I have to make a guess. If I do not pay the government enough, I have to pay a fee and interest. But, if I overpay, is the IRS going to give me interest on my overpayment? No. Does not seem fair, does it?
Then, of course, being the small-business owner that I am, I need to pay estimated taxes for the first quarter of 2009 on top of my "final" payment of 2008.
And now, I am not even done. I still need to finish up the last of the return once I get my last K1.
I hate tax day.
At least I am not one of those suckers who lent the government significant interest free money to the IRS this year. (anyone who gets a refund)
