Property Tax

January 28th, 2018 at 07:58 am

My property tax bill arrived yesterday. It is 55% of the year's total - $872. I plan to pay it next month. I could put in on a card right now, but they charge a 2.1% fee, and that would be $18 lost. I work hard to scrounge up $18 in snowflakes, so I'm not going to throw it out the window. Next month I'll be able to pay it out of my Chase checking account, where my college payments are deposited, and I won't have to move money around.

I also received my 1099-MISC from the museum, and I downloaded my 1099-R from TIAA. So I'm ready to figure out my taxes, and I may get started today. I'd be more excited if I didn't feel like I will probably have to pay.

No spending yesterday. Today I've dodged several spending bullets already. My BFF was tentatively planning to come up and visit the planetarium with her family, in which case I would have met her there and perhaps even taken my grandchildren. But the plan fell through on their end. Then my grandson asked to go see Ferdinand at the movies, but changed his mind to next Saturday. Plus, I was very close to going through a drive-through for breakfast this morning, but I convinced myself to just go home and have apple crisp. (Yes, I finally made it!)

So it's shaping up to be a quiet day, which is just fine.

    Yes, I would save that $18 too. They say with growing tax fraud, it's best to file as soon as possible. I will try to start my return today, although I am still missing 3 income statements.

    I don't blame you for waiting and saving that $18. Smart move!

    It's funny how easy it is to spend, isn't it? Reading how your dodged spending makes me think of the many ways I am tempted.
