My dad called this afternoon with some tax questions. He told me that he was finally getting started and he inspired me to do the same!
Oh man, I just combed through this giant stack of papers to find all my W2s and alas I got to the bottom of the stack and they were nowhere to be found...
But I did find my 2007 Colorado Income Tax Guide! Neatly stacked inside was all my W2s and 1098T! I'm more on top of things than I realized!
It only took me about an hour (I hate when I put things off for months and months and they only end up taking a little bit of time. When I finally finished, I sadly realized that I was only $77 away from getting a tax rebate. Also, my refund was very, very small. Generally it is considered a good thing to keep your free loans to the government to a minimum, but I am missing the days of christmas in may!
Anyways, if you haven't done your taxes yet, just do it. It's not that bad. And if you make under $30,000 (I'll just take a stab in the dark and say that most of my friends fall in that category) then you can you Freedom Edition of TurboTax for free!
