Finally got taxes done.

Whew. That took a while.

Mostly because I haven’t filed taxes for 2010, 2011 and 2012 as well, so I’d have to be filing 4 years of taxes at once. But, the tax situation for these years are simple, and I had help. So it was very quick.

Filling out taxes wasn’t hard, almost quite boring, but there is a lot of detail. I keep finding mistakes when I checked and checked again.

The situation for 2013 was more complicated because I had to file for CPP and QPP refunds. Altogether it took a couple of hours to get all the forms done.

Then I had to go to school and print things out. The tax forms have scripts in them, which Evince didn’t run, so the numbers didn’t line up properly, and I thought that simply opening them in Adobe Reader would fix that. Turns out that Adobe Reader sees the files were edited on a different computer and disabled editing (bad Adobe!). Had to re-type everything in.

In total the taxes for 4 years ended up about 64 pages. Not too bad I guess.
