The Taxman Cometh, Even in Canada
Or perhaps, especially in Canada.
This is the first year I have had to file taxes in both Canada and the US. It is very challenging for me, who is not what most would call a numbers-oriented person nor especially organized when it comes to saving receipts (understatement of the year). So I find myself on this beautiful day, when the children are away with their friend, sitting at the table feeling amazed that I have to do this not once a year but, now, twice.
I don't even pretend to vow to be more organized next year. It won't happen.
But I gratefully pay taxes. I love to pay taxes!
