it’s taxing

I’m done with our taxes. Sort of. The local and state taxes have been submitted. The federal ones are just about ready to go. (I’m still waiting on one of my forms. sheesh.) Thank God for TurboTax. We will be getting a few dollars back–enough to cover our upcoming yearly garbage bill and then some, anyway. That’s pretty much what I shoot for–getting a few dollars back. I don’t understand these people who get all excited about getting a bunch of money back from the government (otherwise known as an interest-free loan to your Uncle Sam). Maybe you ought to adjust the withholdings on your W-4 form and not get so much money taken out of your paycheck. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather have a fatter paycheck year-round than get my money refunded to me when I file my taxes. Of course, given how low interest rates are right now, it probably doesn’t matter.
