Yep, did my taxes, got my federal refund already, and it's gone. Paid Dad back for the car and paid on a few other bills. I have always wondered, why is the federal refund always so much bigger than the state refund? There are so many credits etc one can take for federal, but, state seems more stingy when it comes to credits. And it always seems I get over half BACK in what I paid into federal verses what I pay into state. I hate taxes, they drive me nuts. I do love this new day and age though. Used Turbo Tax and got a credit I otherwise wouldn't have known about if I had just gone and picked up the forms. Speaking of that...is there anyone out there who still fills out the paper forms? I haven't done that in probably 4, maybe 5 years. I've loved the ease of e-filing.
One would think, with payday from work falling in the same week as getting a tax refund, I'd be able to say I'm ahead. Yeah right...seems this week there are other bills due, like water and car insurance. It's a conspiracy I swear it is. They all know when we file and when we're supposed to be getting more, and they hold their greedy hands out for their share. It's mine I tell ya!!! Back off!!!! Yeah, that didn't work. Still sent them the payments. Oh well, such is life huh? Maybe I'll take the extra couple of bucks I have left over and try my luck with the lottery. I might win a couple of bucks.
So......hope everyone's day is going good. Take care, stay out of trouble (unless it's a fun kind of trouble...then carry on! ).
