Ah, May. Pasadena’s slight cloudiness – all that remains of winter – wisps across the blazing sky. Cop cars whizz past with sirens and lights flashing. Hipsters congregate on street corners, waiting to cross on their pilgrimage to the latest vegan restaurant or Neo-Dadaist art gallery. Gentlemen of the streets strum their guitars and set out empty Starbucks cups for donations. Squirrels make merry in Memorial Park, chittering and swishing their tails at you. And the swings are always occupied by schoolchildren, no matter how patiently you wait in the bushes, just out of sight of the nannies and soccer moms and substitute teachers. You just want to touch the sky with your feet, you know?
Oh. May. Wait – MAY?! Unfortunately, you were misguided in thinking that because of the government shutdown, you didn’t have to do your taxes. Normally, your financial advisor is so on top of it! As a true Renaissance man, he’s also the bartender at your local haunt, but that’s only until he finishes his CPA. (It’s been seven years, Tony??)
Now that the deadline has passed, what will you do?
Mad rush to file, of course! Hit the TurboTax or H&R Block software hard. Your computer screen spins before your eyes and your keyboard chatters with the nervousness of your fingers.
It’s a good thing Tony mentioned StorBox was a great place to keep his novelty spoon collection, and you took it upon yourself to store your tax documents there to make it easier for him.
You’d better get those boxes of deductible “business” lunch receipts and 1099 MISCs out of your unit. (It’s so hard to find full-time employment these days.) Burn the midnight oil, and send a plea to the almighty Franchise Tax Board. Grovel for mercy before the Internal Revenue Service.
Then, exhausted, chuck those documents back into storage and give yourself a pat on the back. You don’t have to think about those 2018 taxes ever again! Or at least, until the inevitable audit comes. What can we say? Speed-filing leads to typos. But you’re covered, because you’ve got all the evidence safe in our eco-friendly Pasadena office. Call StorBox today to start storing this year’s paperwork in a convenient location.
