Tax Season is Upon Us, Sort Of

If you’re self-employed full-time, don’t forget to mail your third quarter estimated tax payment. It’s due on September 15.

While I agree with the principle of quarterly payments — unfortunately, a lot of us would forget to save for taxes entirely — I do wish the mechanics of the situation were a little simpler.

For instance, there’s a convenience fee if you want to pay online rather than mailing a check. I can’t see how the IRS finds it more convenient to sort through big piles of paperwork, rather than receiving an electronic file. At the very least, it should reduce paper cuts.
