The Tax Man Cometh. My cigar awaiteth.
I filed my federal and state taxes back in January, but waited until last night to complete my local return. The reason? I knew I'd owe, and based on my local taxing authority's EIT rate of 1.5%, I knew it'd sting.
Yeah, I wasn't disappointed. But the good news is that it's over!
It's easy to equate a fine cigar with snapping photos - both are done on joyous occasions (Have you ever meet a funeral photographer?). But as I grow longer in the tooth, it occurs to me that few occasions in life call for a good cigar like Tax Day. For real.
I'm still deciding on what to smoke, but I have an Avo Compañero all lined up in my sights. What about you?
