POETRY AID TO THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA!
Well, Dear Bankrupt State of California, I would have wanted to do better by you. Which is to say, I just finished filing my California State Tax Return in moi capacity as a poetry publisher. Since a distinct majority of my gross sales occur through the internet or to wholesalers like SPD, I need only pay the minimum amount due on the rest:
Good thing I filled out my own tax return. If I had hired an accountant for his labor, it probably would have cost me about $300 so that I can file a return and thus send the state of California $25.
Such are the vicissitudes (don't you love that word) of poetry publishing.
P.S. If I may offer a suggestion for how to spend my $25, do please bolster the education budget. The state of public school education ... sucks.
