Memorable Automobiles from The Past:
Tax Time I seem to always remember how simple for the retire or working stiff to simply fill out a simple form on an IBM card, mail it in with a check or a request for a refund. It could be done in 10-15 minutes as soon as you received your W-2 form, also on an IBM card at times.
It cannt be read to well, but that is something like the form I used in the mid 50s to file. Small card front and back.
Now, the 1956 W-2 also on a card,
Here is one for Lee Harvey Oswald, you might remember him. I earned more than he did that year, I made $780 in 1956!! LOL
So today we went to breakfast with Don and Evelyn. She has been pretty nice lately, but that is when you know she is about to drop the bomb! LOL
Anyway after we returned I came home and started our Tax return. I am using Turbotax this time. I am still not sold on it, but at least the math is done right and checked.
It ONLY took me 6.5-7 hours. I have only about an hour or so to finish in the next couple days.
Yeah we will have to pay. We used to have so much took out so we would get a refund. We finally realized it was ours anyway and cut back to the minimum.
HOWEVER I sure remember the fun when we would get $75 to $150 dollars as a refund, it was like Christmas. LOL Funny how proud we were to get OUR money back, huh?
Anyway happy tax time to you. I do wish the politicians would spend our tax money wisely, but they have proven no matter who is in charge, the pork barrel still rolls.
I do hope you get a refund.
