tax refund money rose origami

Everything is turning up roses – I’m getting a tax refund!

HOLY CATS!  Good news, everyone!

I’m getting a tax refund!

How did this magical, sparkly goodness happen, you ask?

Please allow me to spin my tale of darkness, woe, a change of fortune and eventual triumph.

It almost makes you suspicious, doesn’t it?

It’s all pretty simple, really.  I lost SO MUCH MONEY on the business in 2017 that I got to deduct most of it, and BOOM! My taxable income went down.

Let’s recap the starting situation:

I had set aside $3000 from my bonus to pay taxes.

I am getting a refund that is slightly more than $2000.

My tax preparation fees were $750, because there is no way in hell I’m qualified to do my own taxes. No, no, no.

My net refund is around $1250, PLUS the $3000 from my bonus that I won’t have to give the government.

I now have $4250 to put toward my credit card debt.
