January’s Gift or, oh hai W-2(s).

After December’s high comes and goes, January commences with resolved people who are going to Get Things Done this year and Be A Better Person. Blah blah, yada yada.

Just when we start getting complacent though, whap! The W-2 forms start arriving in the mail.

Dun dun dun!

Because I moved halfway across the country last year, I can expect three of those babies to show up on my doorstep. In fact, I’ve already gotten one emailed to me. Last year, I was able to complete my taxes by January 31st.

I don’t know that I’ll beat that deadline this year but I know I’ll be ready to input my data and get some refund dollas. Sure, it’s equivalent to what celebrities and the truly wealthy expel when they sneeze, but it’ll be mine. And maybe I can actually like, save it this year.

I say that every tax season. “I’m going to save it.”


Do you think you’ll get a refund? If so, what do you do with it?

Happy Filing!
