Tally Ho!

Tally Ho

Calculator out and ready to go

Add up that income from here to Zoe

Subtract those deductions, count each one

Save all you can before the tax man comes

Rally around those deductions, each charitable gift

Any other donation that will give you a lift


All paperwork ready, all income in order

All deductions itemized in orderly row

Then tally ho my frriend, may the tally be kind

May your tax bill be nil!


Oh, yes, estimated taxes for next  year are due (overdue)

Tally ho, my friend, tally ho!


Tally Ho (c)2015  Quentin Clingerman


Note: Very recently  got this years taxes completed (CPA got a reprieve). Two payments due on next years taxes.  I did get this years taxes paid last week.  One can count on the tax man coming!
