It’s hard budgeting for my taxes every year because I never seem to break even with the several online contract gigs I complete from month to month. A lot of my friends actively look forward to their tax refunds at the beginning of the year, however I’m always sitting here wondering if I’ll have a bill such as I had the year prior. Then it requires months of finding the craziest ways to fund a few more months of my survival separate from eating nothing except for ramen noodles for every meal. Otherwise I risk late fees on my tax payments, thus rapidly throwing me further as well as further behind to the point where I can’t seem to ever be caught up. I actually could benefit from an accountant who could make far better financial decisions for me throughout the year as well as withhold the needed amount of tax cash every month so there are no discrepancies when it comes time to finally file taxes. Taxes are not the only yearly expenses that I have to budget for, as my official medical marijuana patient status is always hanging in the balance. Unless I pay the state something like $99 every year, I will lose my privilege of shopping at a medical marijuana dispensary. While some cannabis stores offer discounts to recoup the $99 that is lost to the state, my favorite cannabis dispensary does not offer this kind of huge discount. I don’t want to shop at an inferior dispensary just to recoup my same expenses to maintain my medical marijuana card. It’s not hard to go out and get a medical marijuana card as long as you can afford the cash you pay to the state.
