MUST FEED UNCLE SAM ~

Tax time….ah, yes…for some of us it’s a windfall…of money we’ve already earned! For others, it’s pay UP.  Must feed the Big Bad Government Beast!

I work in a tax office, so this time of year is what we affectionately refer to as “The Grind.” Six days a week, twelve hour days, whatever it takes to get everyone processed and accounted for so Uncle Sammy can be satiated for another year.

Here are some links of interest for deductions you may not know about….(Breast implants….who KNEW??)

One thing to be aware of . There is an identity theft issue with tax refunds this year, mostly from the Federal Government side.

If, after you have e-filed  your taxes, you haven’t received a refund within 10 days, go to this site..

http://www.irs.gov/Refunds

and you will be able to see if the IRS has released your refund to the correct place.

Good luck, happy taxes, and as always, have a lovely weekend ~
