To my readers, just a gentle reminder that your tax returns are due in less than 20 days. Even if filing taxes is not that complicated for you, I highly recommend taking your tax return to H&R Block, or use tax filing software to see what breaks and credits might be available to you. You never know unless you research.
If you are expecting a tax refund, you can feel confident that it will come in a timely manner. Given the nation’s fiscal mess, I was surprised to see mine in just a few weeks. Of course, this means I gave Uncle Sam a free loan. Next year, I am going to re-figure my withholding using the IRS Tax Withholding calculator to make sure that I am not having too much in taxes withheld. If you got married last year, changed jobs, or had another significant life change, it’s worth double checking.
