And boy did I give Uncle Sam plenty of money for the privilege and honor of living in the US of A! But it is worth every penny! (How many people actually realize how much in taxes they paid for 2001, not just how much you get back or owe? I do.) But with the tax free loan I gave out, I can use it to pay for my 2 new crowns I got earlier this month. Oh joy! It's the smaller state tax refund that I get to spend on goodies! Woo hoo! I must say, using something like Turbo Tax totally sped up the process once again. I'm damn grateful for the software.
