I’m looking forward to tax day. No, I’m not in a time warp. I do know that April 15th is behind us, and most people I talk to are relieved that they don’t have to think about taxes for another year (or in the case of those who extended their returns, until that last piece of paperwork shows up). Often that sense of relief is due not just to the sense of getting through the process of the paperwork, but the whole thought process of dealing with the topic.
But right now, now that it’s all over, is the best time to think about taxes, while the effects of this last filing season are fresh in the mind. In sports, the coach looks at the team’s performance after each game and studies the strategies for weaknesses while the results are still fresh and the team has time to prepare for the next game. Here we are with almost eight months left in 2017 to improve our game.
