The tax man giveth, the tax man taketh away

Posted in: Diary

Taxes this year are a wash.

+$3000 Federal Gov't
-$1500 California State Gov't
-$1500 California Property Tax (I paid $1500 when we closed on the house.. still owe $1500)
$0 net gain/loss

I guess it's better than owing thousands to Uncle Sam.. but I would have prefered to have a nice hefty "tax check" to buy stuff for the house.

I think next year will be better. God, I hope so.



Yes, some years are good some just okay. I always try to tell myself when I have to use tax money or savings for something "un-fun" or some minor disaster that at least we had the money to take care of it!
