The Taxman Cometh

This was the first year I’ve needed to pay taxes. I feel, slightly…republican…or something like that. It’s not that I don’t mind paying taxes, I just made a paltry amount last summer and ended up paying two Benjamin’s. That’s on top of the over $600 that was taken straight out of my paycheck for Social Security and MediCare.

I think what aggravates me the most is that I’m paying for school more or less out of my own pocket (via loans for the time being) and amount to over three times what I make per a year. Shouldn’t I be getting money from the Government, not giving money to them?

This whole education and tax thing is ass-backwards if you ask me.

Until the next April 15th, enjoy this money-related Family Guy clip:

  1. I know what you mean. My tax return hasn’t arrived here yet and I filed on the 17th of March. Plus I paid out of pocket for my books and part of my tuition and the lady at H&R Block said I didn’t qualify for the Education Credit.

    I think the government is trying to screw us over. They want kids to go to college but they don’t want to help them. Its a little sad. Good news is that we get over 4000 back this year because we had to take care of my brothers who are still in High School.

  2. My parents took my education credit… because they claimed me as a dependent. So now I owe the IRS $340… which happens to be my entire work-study paycheck for March, which I got today, and get to fork over to the IRS… today. AWESOME!!!!!!!
