Oh boy! It’s February 1st! You know what that means!
IT’S TAX TIME!!!
I love tax season. I get practically giddy when I receive my W2s in the mail. I love organizing all of our accounts, income, charitable donations, interest and calculating the amount of money we should get back from ol’ Uncle Sam. Ah! It’s so exciting.
I know there’s a whole camp of people who feel differently and see tax refunds as frustrating and boring. And I get that, it is kind of a tedious process. I also know many personal finance gurus see tax refunds as cheating yourself of a year of compound interest. But there’s just something about receiving that large (or small) payout all at once that does a heart good. Plus how much interest are you really getting on your saving accounts? The most I am is a measly 1%.
Anyway, we plan to file our taxes this month. I wonder how much money we will get back this year? Eeee! So excited!
So, what about you?
Do taxes make you confused and frustrated?
Or do you find yourself excited putting together your taxes?
Do you outsource your taxes to an accountant or use an online version?
I’d love to know!
PPS – I’m starting to rethink my calling… perhaps I should have been an accountant? Hm.
