I decided tonight that I needed to get my taxes done. The last three years Laura always did our taxes and before that my Dad did my taxes. So, I was kind of nervous this year thinking of doing them on my own. Because I really only worked for six months and paid out over $7,000 in interest on the house I thought for sure that I would be getting some money back. So I ventured out to one of those tax places and I was shocked to hear what they wanted to charge me for my very simple tax return: $233!!!! Can you believe that? And the thing that sucked was I was only going to get back $87 from federal and I was going to owe Missouri $23. The lady was really nice and told me to just file online by myself. I couldn't agree with her more.
So I came home and got online and while I was doing the return I remembered that I had paid out some on my dental work at the beginning of the year. Thirty minutes later I was done and I will be getting more then $87 back from federal and $11 from Missouri. So, I am pretty happy with the results tonight. And if you add the $600 we are suppose to be getting from the government in the spring; my return is actually pretty nice.
Is it just me or are others tired of all the political stuff? Don't get me wrong, I am interested in what is going on, but this is only February. That means 9 more months of hearing the candidates talking trash about the other person, etc. And don't even get me started on some of the blogs out there.
I've had two techs quit in the last two days. That means I have two full-time positions open right now. So, if any of you are interested in having the best boss in the world, just let me know. :)
