I usually don’t pay a lot of attention to April 15, Tax Day in the USA. And that is because I have gotten a refund for every single year I have filed; 45 years of refunds. And since I get a refund, I usually file my taxes before April 15.
Refund money is used for my yearly project, such as a new recliner, building a deck, getting Miko (yup, she cost $$), and so on.
However, this is the year that I could no longer claim my daughter as a dependent. And I ended up owing the IRS money!
I had plans! Since I had to pay, I waited until the last possible day to file. That would be today.
I am sooooo depressed. And broke.
