Working On Our Taxes

I spent an hour last night working on our taxes.

I have entered information about our income, child care costs, and various deductions.

I am still waiting on a couple of tax-related documents, so for a trial-run, I estimated.  It looks like we will be receiving a small refund from the federal government and owe a small amount to our state government.

I can remember the first time I filed taxes.  I was still living at home with my parents – and we went to the local library to pick up paper forms for the 1040EZ.  That was more than 20 years ago.

Now, I file online via H&R Block At Home Online (Save 15% ).  The process is simple, with a step-by-step guide.

Even as we are making progress in paying off our mortgage – it’s still discouraging to see just how much we spend on INTEREST.  Man, I cannot wait until the day when we own our home, free-and-clear.  Until then, we keep working the plan.

I plan to file in the next couple of weeks and will have any refund or payment automatically deposited or debited from our online checking account.
