Time's almost up

After much procrastination, staying true to my usual M.O., I finally filed my taxes today.
I was so ashamed to admit this even 24 hours ago until I discovered there are many more out there like me, putting off the inevitable.

And unlike me, they still have yet to take care of their business.
Well, now that I’ve quit dragging my slow behind on this, I want to help you, my fellow man, with this friendly reminder/public service announcement:


No more excuses. Even, if you’re cheapsakate like me, you can either do it yourself or do like I did and have someone do it for you. In my case, I went to the Queensborough Neighborhood Association where the folks were nice and friendly.
But best of all, it was FREE!

Here’s a list of some other places that offer free tax assistance, but time is running out, Tuesday will here before you know it. So, you may want to call them first:

That's awesome that the neighborhood association helped with that. News you can use, for sure! Maybe next tax season we can have a Link222 filing party...?

That's a GREAT idea, Adam! We should have a filing party, but maybe around late February or EARLY March before the last-minute procrastination monster can grab us! We can be tax-filing leaders in the local young adults community!
