I don't want to give my father in law who may have cancer money to help him
That sounds heartless but the deal is he has a big lump above his ankle that they dont know what it is, hes been to the doctors and they said it was some kind of skin infection, then the actual lump grew and they mentioned cancer, they wanted him to reschedule his appointment and they would do some tests and whatever. He scheduled it for the middle of march so taxes would be back in, and i know hes expecting money from his 3 kids to help but they majorly screwed us on taxes last year. His mom use to be a tax preparer for H&R block and so when she was supposily filing our taxes for us, she used the info i gave him to claim us on THERE taxes that we lived with them, and made under the allowed amount of $ (so they could claim us cause if you make over so much you have to claim yourself)
they gave us 275 and said that was all we got and that we would get more if they claimed us, she told us this AFTER it was filed and done and the deadline was past. He worked an entire year making 14 an hour so i know theres no way we only made $275.00.
Now, this year IM filing our taxes at home with turbotax and his dad keeps asking if we got the W2's back yet, his mom asks if we want her to file again and swears she won't do that again, i know when we get our money back there going to be hounding for money and after last year, i don't want to give it to them. Yes he may need the money however he works as a manager of a store, sits on his butt all day and makes good money! He does gun shows and has a shit ton of guns he could sell for $$ but he chooses not too and then wants us to help pay his bills and give him $$
We've done really good and payed of our debt threwout the year and we plan on spoiling our daughter for her first birthday, getting a NICE swimming pool and just treating ourselves this year, and saving some $ away for a trip to SeaWorld.
Yes, the money could go to other things but its a reward for ourselves and its going to cause problems that we are "blowing our money on stupid stuff instead of potentially saving a life"
He won't even know its cancer until after he has the $ so we could be handing over our money and then they find out its idk some kind of removable noncanerous tumor or just a wollen up skin infection and its perfectly treatable and an easy cheap fix then he wont give us the money back, he'll say he had to use it for bills.
I know hubbies going to want to help out and i really just don't think we should have to since he has ways to get $ and he doesnt even know whats wrong with him! Hes ASSuming its cancer
