Tax documents are arriving, and being promptly put into this year’s manila tax envelope. This is the first year in several that I’m not dreading doing our taxes because I’m confident that we’ll be extremely close to even. For the last few years we’ve owed a significant amount of money because I never accounted for the fact that my blogging activity is not taxed up front. Midway through 2015 I made a significant change to my withholdings resulting in our tax bill being much less last year. This year that withholdings change will have been at work throughout the entire year of 2016. It’s a relief not having to worry about having to come up with a huge chunk of funds in April.
Fist pump for taxes, and my favorite posts of the week!
