I Love Tax Time

I do.  I really do.  It is because of one word:  refund!

Some of my friends tell me that I should pay closer attention and “not let them have your money during the year.”  My response?  “Does it really matter?”  I mean, after all, if interest rates were a lot higher, I might try to give the government as little as possible of my extra money.  However, since interest rates at banks are so poor, I use my monthly taxes as sort of a vacation plan.  When tax time comes around, I know that I will be getting enough money back to pay for a vacation or two.

This afternoon, I went to pick up my tax returns and found out that, with the change in tax codes and with my withholding, I will get enough money back to pay for two upcoming four-day Bahamas cruises.  Not bad.  Thank you, Uncle Sam. 🙂
