    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Filed Those Taxes Yet?

It’s tax season, and once again it is time to review our income, purchases, and financial burdens from the past year and lay them out mercifully to the government.  Since it was my week off of teaching, I decided to square them away on Tuesday and make sure that I didn’t have the burden of filing still looming over my head before April rolls around. 

If you are filing for the first time or are simply looking for a less demanding way to file your taxes, making an appointment with an accountant (such as H and R Block) may be a good way to go.  They can file all of your taxes for you (just give them your W2s, your college tuition form, and any other pertinent tax documents) and they will complete the filing process for you by just asking you some simple questions and having you sign on the dotted lines.  You get back your money from the government within 3 weeks time and they will direct deposit it into your account, no hassle.  You do pay a small fee for the services, but I do it this way almost every year and it has been the least stressful process ever.  It takes 30 minutes. Tops.

Now, if you don’t mind the process of filing, fill out your tax information online for free.  Just make sure you do it soon to avoid the panic of procrastination!  It is always best to get ahead of the game, especially when it comes to something like this.  You don’t want to leave it to the last minute…and besides, then you have to wait longer to get back all of the money you should be refunded!
