Tax Day.

Happy Tax Day!!  Did everyone get their taxes in on time?  This was the first year I actually had to file my own taxes.  Up until last year my parents were able to take me off as a dependent because I am still in school.  This year Bruce and I filed jointly.

Actually, technically, because I am in school and spend way more money than I take in, I am Bruce's dependent.  So even more technically - I still have yet to file my own taxes.  But I still like to think that I'm "up" on the whole process.

Did anybody out there brave the process of actually filing their return themselves?  A lot of my friends at school encouraged me to try Turbo Tax or H&R Block online, but I'm terrified of numbers and even more terrified of the government so I thought I would leave it to the experts and send everything to a CPA.  Luckily, we have one in the family so it was just a matter of a few e-mails, phone calls and trips to the post office.

I'm giggling quietly at myself because I say "it was just a matter of a few e-mails, phone calls and trips to the post office" like I actually did any of those things.  I believe my contribution to the entire tax process consisted of me saying, "Bruce I got this in the mail from Emory it looks important" and (a few weeks later) him saying, "Sign here."

And I did.

But I still like to think that I am still "up" on the whole process.


One more thing ...

Please pray for the family of Army First Lieutenant Robert Collins.  He was 24 years old and killed in Iraq last Wednesday.  He went to West Point with our friend Gib.  You can get more information here.  A scholarship fund has been set up in his name and you can get more information here.

  1. We always do our own taxes, though I'm sure hubby would prefer someone else did them.

    Sad to hear about Robert Collins. Very sad.
