One good thing about technology is that many things have moved online. That includes not only filing taxes, but getting tax statements. I’ve spent a little time over the last week collecting electronic copies of everything I need to file my taxes, which I do with TurboTax. I’ve got just about everything I need, with one exception. My bank, with the few pennies I’ve earned in interest, won’t give me the tax data until they put out the monthly statement next week. It’s mildly annoying especially when I’m expecting a rather large refund (I only have 3 months of income for tax purposes, thanks to the Combat Zone entitlement.)
Hopefully I’ll be able to get the taxes filed in a week or so, so that my refund arrives about the same time I get home. And I’ll promptly use it to buy a car since my wife saw fit to sell mine when I left.
