So I’m probably the only one on the planet, but I actually try to NOT get a huge tax return.

I have a problem with letting the government use MY money all year.  They make interest off of it and/or spend it really unwisely.  I don’t like that.

AND…I can use that money in my paycheck.  I can spend it wisely (most of the time :S ) and put it in MY piggy bank to earn interests, etc.

This philosophy makes me sound ultra-conservative and more and more like my father.  But oh well!

That leaves me at the end of this tax year getting 65$ back from the federal government.

It is a little sad when everyone else is getting big checks deposited into their accounts, but I remind myself that I’ve been able to do fun stuff like pay for Crossfit w/ my extra dollars in my paycheck.  🙂
