Nothing Is Sure But Death & Taxes!!

It is that time! We should be getting our return tomorrow--and that is always a happy time of the year for me! This year we finally had a salary to use to pay taxes which meant again that we are qualified for the 'welfare rebate' for the Child Tax Credit! I know, it's an awesome thing, but to be honest getting money back that you didn't pay--is welfare. So enjoy it!!

We had our house this year to deduct but it would have been nice to have a few other high ticket items like a car donation. It wouldn't have given us much more back, but it would have been nice to be able to help a cause like Car Angel.They are a non-profit company that uses these donations to make videos for kids and teens. They have given away over 2.4 million videos. Now that is making a difference!
