Happy Tax Day! Head on over to Kelly’s for more fun.
Yes, we filed our taxes on time. Pfew!
We usually get a refund from federal, but almost always have to pay into state.
I wrote the check out incorrectly for the taxes we owed the state. Little tidbit: if you accidentally do not match the numeric amount to the long-written-out amount, the bank will cash the check for the long-written-out amount. I am glad I caught it before taxes were due – I sent in the hundred extra dollars I had “forgotten” because I wrote the check out incorrectly! (Six hundred and 97/100 dollars is not the same as $697.00)
Being an adult during tax season is fun. Particularly when you get to spend your tax return on…..wait for it….paying off debt. Super fun.
I was really excited we could add baby Evvie as an exemption this year.
I would give to charity regardless of whether it can be counted toward exemptions. The exemptions are nice, but mainly it just feels good.
Tax goal going forward: Set up and contribute to a Roth IRA. They have great tax benefits and padding the retirement nest is never a bad idea.
Wishing you all a blessed and prosperous April the Fifteenth! Enjoy!
