I was socking away money consistently, finally getting my act together. My account was starting to look pretty decent too. Then we did taxes. Do you ever feel like you’re trying to go upstairs using the down escalator? Once you get your act together, chaos comes along and wipes you out. It’s like an ant rebuilding its hill after the little kid stomps on it. It’s like piling up the sandbags and barely keeping up with the rising floodwaters. Too many similes for you? Okay, then, it sucks.
“They” say it’s better if you owe taxes on April 15th. If you got a refund, then it means you gave the government an interest free loan. And conversely, if you owe, the government gave YOU an interest free loan. See? It’s actually a good deal.
