And my cold is 95% gone and I have a 3pm happy hour and I pick up my huge tax return today and weather is beautiful and life is good.

I'm thankful I can echo at least one of your sentiments.

The weather in Dallas is amazing right now -- absolutely GAWJUSS.

Has been for several weeks. I definitely need to get outside this weekend, we don't get much weather like this around here.

*Plus some amount of use tax for the stuff I bought online...I know a lot of people who pay zero but I feel like that is just asking for an audit.

I don't know how the big chIL treats use taxes for online purchases but is there really any fear of an audit based on that? I pay zero even though I buy a shit ton online.

They audited a bunch of people for use taxes a few years back after they introduced it and realized that everybody was just paying zero.

Basically tons of people got extortion letters that say "based on your income, we think you probably bought this much stuff without paying IL sales tax on it, so if you pay us $X, we won't audit you"

On the form they now even provide a handy calculator to tell you how much you should pay based on income. Honestly though, it is hard to tell. Amazon purchases don't get taxed, but almost every retailer has an IL location so they still charge tax for online purchases. Do you have to pay taxes on ebay purchases? Even if the goods are unused and thus "new", most of the time it is a secondhand purchase.

I made a trip here exactly a year ago (holy shit time flies!) to hang out with my current roommate and the weather was amazing!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Dallas weather seems to be the best from March - May.

St. Patty's day parade tomorrow on Greenville, too! I hear it's sick.

Yeah it's fun. Take the train, though. The cops are going to be looking for drunk drivers.

Wow, what a bunch of assholes. How do you tolerate that place?

Come to PA where they don't audit for use taxes and there's no sales tax on clothing anyway.

I'm glad I live on the other side of the IL border. Fortunately, most of the places where I shop in the Chicago area don't have shops in IN, and packages from Chicago arrive next day. :wink:
