Ummmm. It is from deductions, credits and exemptions. The harder you work, the less you get. Sad, but true. Not saying you guys don't work hard. Just saying a refund check getting handed to you isn't hard work.... Your 15k in the bank, that's another story. Just talking about taxes here.

Quoting Anonymous:

What do you think it comes from then?

Quoting JDmommyJD:

Lol... I don't think the 8k tax return comes from working hard, planning and budgeting...

Not at all. You made it sound like we just got lucky and did nothing to deserve what we have.

Are you implying my financial status is due to not saving or trying, or budgeting?

I see how you bitches work...trying to weasel your way in to get on my good side lol i'll be lucky if i can get any of that from dh to buy the shit we need for our house. He's great at earning money and saving it, not so much at the spending. Which is a good thing but DAMN can mama get a grand to buy some damn furniture lol

No I didn't at all. That's simply the way you chose to perceive what I said.

Really? Then how come the chick from another post paid in .94 and is getting back 8k? Or the one whose husband made 22k all year and is getting back 11k? If you think you get a larger tax refund implies harder working,you are confused.

Quoting Anonymous:

It does in a the since that he has worked his ass off to get into the position he is in at work. If he didn't, we wouldn't be getting nearly that amount back.

Quoting JDmommyJD:

Lol, "its NOT hard to get...."



Im not saying they are moochers or anything.. Just saying your refund has nothing to do with hard work.




Quoting mamatocaleb:

 It's really not that hard ot get 8k back Mrtgage credits, interest, children, school debts etc etc. It adds up the deductions you can have, and if you make less than 90,000 combined a year and have at least 3 kids you can easily walk away with that!
