Happy Day-After-Tax Day!

We did our tax returns at the last minute this year, thanks to my poor recordkeeping habits last year.  When I mailed them yesterday morning, I had such a feeling of relief and freedom.  No more worrying about it anymore!  I know procrastinating isn't a good habit, but I do love the almost euphoric feeling when you finally get something done that you've been putting off for a while.

It was also nice that we owed less than we thought we might.  Not to mention, doing our taxes was the kick in the pants I needed to finally clean my desk.  It was starting to look like a disaster area — my laptop was an island amid stacks of papers.  Yikes!  I feel so much less frazzled now that I have a clean desk... or maybe that's just the post-Tax Day euphoria again!

What about you?  Did you do your taxes early this year, or at the last minute?  Was the end result good news, or bad news?
