christain: Well, now $800 poorer. I worked out a payment plan of $200/mo. So, that saved me a couple hundred...then my wife spent most of it on groceries! Oh well, no new toys just yet, but I CAN EAT.

redscorpion: I can't wait to get the property tax bill for the new car this year. It's going to be a lot of fun stroking that check to the State. Probably could buy another car with that money...

ouroboros: Howdy Red, i didnt send much last year...that might be a problem.but then again I disnt make much either
Mar 21, 2019 22:11:41 GMT
redscorpion: Paying taxes is easy. Just ask yourself two questions: Did I make money last year? And: Did I send most of it to the government? If you answered "yes" to both questions, relax, you're a good citizen and the government will leave you alone.

ouroboros: I still have to work my taxes out for the year...being the lesser of two breadwinner s might actually see me get a return this year. Yeah...riiiight

christain: G'morning, all. This day sees me spending $1000. Too bad it's going to the state of Texas for property taxes. I could buy a lot of toys for a grand....or one reeeeeally good one.
