I know ALL of you have already filed your taxes....right????
We owed $192 in state taxes, and had a $1,035 refund for federal. We scheduled the state taxes to be an autodebit for today (knowing today is payday, and we KNEW there would be money in our account). There it was when I checked on line this morning....the debit has already taken place.
Still haven't received our federal refund. That is estimated to arrive this Friday. Our plan was to repay ourselves the $192 for state, and the remainder will go to finish some home projects.
Is it bad that I am already thinking about NEXT tax day? With the mortgage refi, where we paid points, are now paying FHA mortgage insurance, and with slightly higher child care costs....our refund should be a little higher next year (of course, we are paying less in interest costs, so it may all even out. Who knows).
I am really hoping to be way on down the debt snowball road by then. We have hit so many potholes...our time is due! I would really LOVE to hit our goals for this year.....it is still possible....just will really take alot work, a little luck, and no more derailment.
But for today...I can sit back and know another tax year is gone, and focus forward.
