Taxes are done!

April 13th, 2015 at 06:28 pm

Yeah I finally completed my tax returns. I remember a time when I would rush to complete the return so that I can get my few hundred dollars. I was always in a jam. Now it feels good to see this as extra, not a rush, having the feeling of I can wait. Though I have debt, I love the fact that I have it under control and am working diligently to pay it off/down.

With that being said, once the funds hit my account, I will be able to knock out CC1 and CC2, I am so excited. Though the plans was to pay off CC3 as well, I decided to tackle this card (balance $500) using the funds saved from CC1 and 2. We're going to the Derby so I'd like to keep some extra cash on me and not use the CC I worked so hard to pay off. That's it in a nutshell 😀

Oops I almost forgot, the BF hinted that "he may need me to put a car in my name." I'm proud to say I didn't entertain the idea and nipped it in the bud. I flat out said no. There was a time when I would stress over things like this. I worked too hard to rebuild my credit. Though I have CC debt, I was surprised to see my score in the high 700s. Ultimately I would like to own a home one day.

    I filed late for me. I filed on March 28th and my federal refund (which I was so NOT expecting after 6 months of unemployment sans taxes being withheld) hit my account on April 6th. Yay! I do, however, owe the state. I always owe my state. Granted it's usually $3 or $4 but still. This year it was more due to the unemployment sans taxes being withheld. LOL All in all I netted $400+ Nice way to rebuild the depleted savings thanks to the 6 months of unemployment.

    Good work with not agreeing to put someone else's car in your name, better to be safe than sorry, and sometimes the only person who truly realises how hard you work to better a bad financial situation is yourself (speaking generally here). Keep your sights firmly set on your home ownership goal.

    I like to file my taxes as soon as I can just to have them done and over with for the year.

    Good for you saying no to your bf's idea!
