Tax Season

Raise your hand if you enjoy doing taxes? If you raised your hand at that, you’re either lying or you’re just flat out crazy. Taxes are by no means fun and they’re rarely easy.

I prefer to do mine via Turbo Tax though. That way, I don’t have to drive anywhere and I can simply type the numbers that are in one box into the correct location on the screen. However, I was skeptical about doing my taxes on Turbo Tax for many reasons. One reason is I hate math and I don’t always trust myself when it comes to crunching numbers.

In fact, I may or may not take mine to H&R Block. When I was doing my takes, I accidentally left off a digit when I punched in my annual salary and saw I was getting back a lot of money. Then when I realized the mistake, I made my correction, and somehow my tax return number went down. Way down. What the….?

This made absolutely no sense whatsoever. One would figure the more money one makes in a year, the more taxes that are withheld and the more money one would receive on his taxes.

However, things are always as appear and there are many people in the government who lack common sense. If what I was told was correct, the good news is it extremely easy to file but the bad news is I’m not getting nearly as much as I hoped. If it’s incorrect, I’ll be glad to find that out by taking it to H&R Block. Thankfully there are several of those around in Tyler and throughout East Texas.
