Taxes Done and Filed, Yes It’s A Relief

My duty to my country is finished because today, one day before the deadline I filed our 2014 income taxes. The IRS is a necessary evil and no one loves to pay them but we have to. For so many years we have had to pay until the last few years. Yes its good to get this yearly ritual done but I can’t just do it early but its put off until almost the last minute. Fortunately we are getting a refund this year and that is a relief.


After reviewing what I had put into the tax program I realized I didn’t click something I needed to so when I did we went from owing to being owed. There is something about double checking. It is a good feeling to be getting something back.

Now we wait for it to be deposited into our bank account. Yes, I should have done it before now but you know…I am stubborn like that.

  1. I am done with my tax return, too. I did it a good old fashioned way, without any software. Tried to do it online but gave up when I couldn’t use a 1040A form. Had to resort to the snail mail. I am on Social Security and don’t owe any taxes so it wasn’t complicated.

    I’ve been filing my own taxes for the last couple of decades, and it comes out not bad. Except for one year when I forgot about a Standard Deduction; IRS found it for me and sent a check. Can you believe it?

    Here’s to the end of the Tax Filing Season.
