We just finished our taxes! Unfortunately our results weren't as good as last year when we got an awesome return. This year - due to both of us changing jobs and the "making work pay" tax credit which makes you think you earn more money than you actually do - we owed money.
But thankfully, we had some moving expenses and the Lifetime Learning credit for my school last semester to make our grand total go down. It was awesome to watch the little ticker roll off money from our total here or there!
All I have to say is, thank goodness for programs that figure this all out for you. I remember filing my taxes while I was a dependent and earning very little money and they seemed so simple! If I had to do the taxes on my own this year, it would have made my head spin...
Do you wait until April to try to get everything in before the deadline, or do you try to get them out of the way early? I'm an early-bird. Just one more thing to cross off my list, and one less thing to think about later!
