Default I hate April

Besides Mother Nature extending winter through April this year, there is always the added treat of taxes.

$1260 due.

Me wants beer.

Consider yourself lucky, I got hit many times worse. Your glass is half full.

The IRS tried to tell me I owed $1700 in back taxes due to some stock options I cashed in. Luckily, I had the paperwork to prove they could get bent...

I'm only getting about $600 total back this year, though. I thought home ownership was supposed to help you rake in the refunds....

Maybe if you can claim rental income, or running a business out of your home. Then maybe. Getting $600. back is better than paying $1,700. I always say.

Nope. Basically nothing you do to YOUR house is deductible except some enegery conserving upgrades.

Now if you had rental property, then just about everything is.
