Everyone should be freaking out about tax season right about now, April is fast upon us.
That is, unless you are a college student hoping to get some financial aid. Yeah, you should have already done your taxes prior to March 1st so that you could be considered for the most free or loan money possible. So I must thank FAFSA for pressuring me to file my income taxes early every year so that I don't have panic attacks in April. I had a panic attack in February because we had to pay an additional $1,000 in federal and state income taxes this year.
By the way, I must comment on the stupid FAFSA logo. It is a mortarboard with a USA flag image on it capping the "S", so your (the student's) studies are patriotic, get it? Ok, no more on the subject
