HOLY SMOKES! (tax refund related)

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Dh and I both started college again (he's going for his masters I'm continuing to my bachelors), we bought a house this year and had a third child. We are not well off but certainly are more comfortable than others. I had no idea we'd qualify for so much with three kids, a house, and two full time students! We've never received more than 2,000 and we are getting about 6,000! Which will be used to finish paying off our last car (2,00 left!) and the rest will go in savings.

Soooo that's my brag post! YAYYYYYY!!!

My husband and I were both in grad school the last two years, had a NICU baby and I was hospitalized for ten days, plus all other medical expenses. We are getting back over 8K... For all of those ladies with their panties in a bunch assuming we had PA- no, we never did. It's all sorts of awesomesauce though because the first year we paid in because each of us had bonds to help us live on during gradschool.

 Well yay for 8k and grad school! Boo to NICU baby. I assume everything is okay now though? :)

And we've only ever had WIC and that was three years ago. Nothing since. That extra money will help to draw off of for books and classes anyways. Now maybe we won't have to scramble getting together a 1000 a semester for books! LOL

My fiance is getting almost 9 grand back and I am got 1k. We are planning on getting a car for me, paying rent for the last 4 months of our lease, going to see my family in Texas, but some in saving, and our daughters and us are getting new clothes and shoes.

We went to a furniture store yesterday and this guy was leaving with a 60 inch led tv. First thought in my mind was: someone got their refund lol
