Yes, it’s 3:36 in the morning.
I just finished putting my 2006 tax return through Turbo Tax and they claim that I’ve got $765 coming back to me.
I should be elated, and yet I’m more confused than ever because I haven’t gotten a refund in years. Remember, I just finished paying a penalty for 2005’s return and gave the government $400?!
Really weird, but the more I go over my numbers, I can see that I made more at my day job, they took out significantly more taxes – probably due to my bonus, and it looks like I made so little for writing last year that my deductions completely ate up any income that I had, to the point where I don’t even have to pay self-employment taxes. Crazy…
I’ll have to double-check these darned things tomorrow after I’ve gotten a bit of sleep, but if it’s actually true, then that’s pretty sweet! It’ll all get sent to Chase Manhattan to help pay down credit cards, but still, pretty sweet indeed.
