Tax Refund much lower; sign of a good year.

February 24th, 2010 at 03:25 pm

2009 tax return was $2000 less than last year, and $4000 less than two years ago.

This is the first year I've taken the standard deduction because my interest and tax payments on my house were not high enough to warrant itemizing, all positive results of refinancing my mortgage at the right time.

My messing around in the stock market, made me enough money that I owed over $2,000 in unpaid taxes on profits.

The result is that I got almost no refund this year, but I'm not complaining.

    I have read in various places that the best tax return is ZERO because it means that you have some insurance that you didn't give the government a year to play with your money for free. I mean, it's nice to have tax season lead to the appearance of a windfall, but it IS your money...
