SQUEEZING A LEMON WHILE WAITING FOR THE APOCALYPSE
I knew next to nothing about income taxes before doing my twelve years of taxes. I decided that the best way to learn was to do them, and not worry about making mistakes. What an excellent opportunity for me to learn! I squeezed one of life’s lemons to make lemonade.
I knew next to nothing about taxes before doing them. After doing them I found that I knew next to something, but it was not enough. I wanted to increase my income-tax knowledge.
I tried reading The Income Tax Act. Anyone who wants to cure his or her insomnia should read The Income Tax Act.
Several times I tried studying Wolters Kluwer’s Introduction to Income Taxation in Canada. But it had a lot of big words and no pictures.
I settled for John Wiley & Sons’ Tax Tips for Dummies. So far I have not fallen asleep and there are no big words.
I am glad I got my taxes done before October 7, 2015. According to Chris McCann, President of eBible Fellowship Ministries, the world will end on October 7, 2015. I can’t imagine the guilt I would feel being unable catch up on my taxes because there was no world.
Chris McCann did not say what time the world would end on October 7, 2015. I hope it is later in the day so I can sleep in.
