What A Difference A Year Makes

Just did my taxes today. I always wait 'til it's close to the deadline due to the fact that it's a pain, I have a shitload of deductions and organizing it all is a pain in the proverbial ass.

For the past few years, I either have to pay a couple hundred bucks or get back maybe a hundred. Last year, I got the refund of just slightly over a hundred so, naturally I'm not too fired up to get maybe the same results. This year, that amount went up 10-FUCKING-FOLD...IN MY FAVOR!!! WOOOOOOOOT!!!

Granted, the reason why it went up so much was due to the recent education credits that rolled out under this new administration. Kinda makes me think that this really is a good time to be a college student and finally not feel punished for wanting to be one.

I'm just sayin'...




I am the Complaint Department Manager and I approve the new tax laws...in my favor.

That Hope Credit saved my ass twice CDM. The two kids who's college I paid for thought they deserved it.

One of them is serious cause she moved back in with me after graduating. She's determined to get that credit.

Good for you! I'm envious! The tax laws didn't work in my favor at all! My poor husband received a very nice bonus on his birthday last year from his normally quite jerky boss. I guess the guy finally decided to recoginze poor SPP's hard work. He had lots of taxes taken out, then tax time came and we owed EVEN MORE. Like ridiculous amounts!

I don't get it. SPP is a hard-working, stressed-out, office drone - not a Goldman CEO!
