Something Just Doesn't Feel Right This April 15th - But I'm Not Complaining
Don't get me wrong - I am exceedingly comfortable with the concept of "trade-offs", I have never, ever complained about paying Federal Taxes, and I love being a Renter. Confused about how I am going to link this together? Here's the deal - since I an a Renter, I don't pay any mortgage interest. Since I don't pay any mortgage interest, I am not itemizing my deductions and just taking the standard deduction for a married couple. So my trade-off for the ease and carefree life of a renter is that I am not getting a Refund. Not even one cent. For the first time in my entire life. Of course, I don't have to save that refund for the eventual house repair.
