Anyway, this is definitely a brag post. I finally decided to be a grown up and file our own taxes. People do this every year, so how hard could it be? Ryan and I have had them done at h&r block and we've had them done for free by the military, but this year I wanted to do them ourselves. It's a right of passage into adulthood that I wanted to tackle.
I knew we were going to have to pay, but we figured out a tax credit that Ryan qualified for, and only ended up paying one third of what we estimated and saved for. I'm usually a person who gets things done right away, so us waiting to do taxes until now was me procrastinating because I was intimidated. I quickly learned a) it takes under an hour, b) you just have to fill numbers in boxes, c) if you have a problem, there is more than enough info to reference in the instruction booklet, and d) it's easy.
Who needs an accountant?? I got this! On top of that, it's officially Friday AND Ryan and I both just got paid. I'm happy!
