Now, what shall I do, maybe I will go to a casino, maybe I will go on a shopping spree, maybe I will spend it foolishly, or maybe I will be normal and pay bills and save :) 

What are you going to be doing with it?

nice, we bought our house that year too, but we didn't get it cause it was a famliy purchase. We bought it from my hubby's parents. We still paid for it though.. Only $32,000 but still would of been nice to get alittle something. I think it was 10% of the sale back or something. 


Quoting MalakbelLacuna:

the first year the government did the house buyers credit- a friend of mine got almost 18k.

makes no damn sense

Quoting ajrjj05:

we dont' get a lot. nothing like the $11,000 I am reading on here. I will be saving the little we got but I figured I would jump on the band wagon of tax post. 


Quoting MalakbelLacuna:

Sorry I thought you called me a troll.. :/


Quoting okijet:

sorry , my judgement is wrong, and trollish!! lol.  I am the real troll I guess. (sorry

Money baffles me, since we live in a pay later society it seems  odd to me at least that the only time we get noticed for our work is at tax time, and it's your own money you worked for.  weird.

I guess It explained itself in the bible, where we all are supplied with enough, and the tithe was meant for the upbuilding of the church or something.  It seems weird that all the work families endure is only focused on once a year.  I have a tough perception of that.  If  you are given only ''this much'', and need to save for 1 x per yr. to improve, and that is when most improvements are made in govt' during that time like grants and improved highways, and all the bridges, then they are literally using the money they just gave the tax payer from their rebate. ??? 


Quoting ajrjj05:

If is was trollish I would be ANON. I thought I would jump on the "tax post band wagon" I am not getting anyitng close to what I see others are. The little I am getting will have to be saved.. I just wonder what all those with $10,000 returns really do with it. I wonder what they would do if they only get a $1,000. It was more of a fun post. 


Quoting okijet:

I don't tell anyone what I do with my money, or if I had it.   This is pretty trollish.  since that is the term most widely used as per date.

I am not going to say what I think about anyone else's money it's money.... enough said

It's my child support and there's good reasons why I haven't been able to pay it.  So we're just letting taxes get it and it'll be done.
