I’m like the “True Grit” of taxable Americans, itemizing every tiny little deduction I can and prying it from the Gov’s grubby hands. That’s right, I LOVE tax time. I treat my taxes like a game or puzzle, trying my best to get more back than I did last year. I already have an idea in my head of how much I think I will get back. I’m single, I take school classes, I have work related expenses…ohhhhh I can feel that check coming. And because I use Turbo Tax and file electronically, I get my refund back in like a month. No Joke.
There may be a snag this year though. I was laid off for a few months and had to collect unemployment. This may eat into my refund a bit, but since I didn’t make as much money this year and my expenses stayed the same, there is a possibility I may be ok. Fingers crossed!
So let’s say I did get my fat refund. What should I do with the money? I could pay off my debt (crowd yells boooooo) or I could go to Miami (crowd cheers!). I’ll let my creative visualization practice help me out.
I am visualizing myself at the beach, in a bikini, with a pina colada in hand…..
