taxes. done.

It's that time of year again ... the Tax Man cometh.

Yesterday, I dug out all of our documents and decided to get cracking on our '09 taxes. I got on a roll, and just kept going. And finished! I e-filed last night, yay! So nice to have that task out of my hair.

Just an FYI if you haven't done your taxes yet, and if you have donated toward the tragedy in Haiti (or intend to before March 1) ... the IRS is allowing us to deduct those charitable contributions on our '09 taxes! That's right, you don't have to wait until filing your 2010 return to claim them. Go HERE for all the IRS rules and regs. This is awesome, because it will encourage even more donations.

And then there's the FUN part --- the REFUND! If you're expecting one, check out the IRS's Refund Cycle Chart to estimate when the $$$ will arrive in your bank account or mailbox. Another way to get the status of your refund is the Where's My Refund? page on the IRS website.

Happy filing,
