Huh? On the news last night they showed how Uncle Sam used $500,000 of your money to paint
portraits of "civil servants" like cabinet secretaries!
Aren't we in a fiscal crisis? I owe them $6500 more in taxes.....I'm gonna make them sweat for another six weeks.
I'll happily manage my own money in the meantime.
This is totally good practice in theory. My dad once claimed 9 exemptions because he had to have his net pay as high as possible. I remember, he went back to work after his own co. failed, and he had this great job and was on Wall St. for months. The problem was this was the early 90's--my dad still was against credit cards. He could not pay to stay in NYC for week upon week and wait to be reimbursed...thankfully they gave him the corporate amex.
I just asked our a/p if they had paid a vendor, because I wanted to keep good terms based on the line I asked them for. AP emailed me back--the invoice is not due, we do not pay early, the terms are net 30. It made me realize that yes, I am a weirdo for paying my bills 45 to 30 days before they're due, and that would not make me a good controller or treasurer, but at home, it's a little different! lol
