AW!! Doesn't he look cute!!!

So here I sit, nice and cozy in my house, with 16+ inches of snow that has fallen in my neck of the woods.  I was lucky enough to get 2 friends of Dani's to come down and shovel my driveway and walkway and steps (for a fee, of course!).

I had to do my taxes today because my ex did my son's.  I get to claim him for one last year, since he's a senior in college.  If I claim Tim, he owes $29 in taxes (he's a server).  If I don't claim him, he'll get back $485.  So I told my ex I didn't want to deprive Tim of a decent refund.  The ex suggested I do my taxes both ways, claiming Tim and not claiming Tim.  If I claim Tim, I'll get $800+ back.  If I don't, I owe $1155.  Uh.... sorry Tim.  You're on your own.  The ex is sending me Tim's W-2 form to see if I can do any better.  We'll see!

So while I was doing my taxes, John was in the family room, reading.  I went into the room to get something and found him just like this.... 



psst!  I have a friend who blogs here... her name is Vodka mom. It's also the name of her blog.  Her blog is one of the funniest I've ever read! Anyway, she was nominated for the Top 50 Mommy Bloggers.  It would be really cool if you could check her out, read some of her stuff and go over to Babble and vote for her!  And you can vote more than once!  As a matter of fact, you can vote once a day!  Last time I checked she was ranked #8!  Simply click here to go to the site.  And check out her blog!  You won't be sorry!!

Joanie, we had the same issue with my daughter. If she filed on her own she'd get $1100 back from a tuition credit. If we took her as a dependent, the credit on our refund is over $1800. So we are claiming her, but we are also paying for her new tires and her spring insurance payment.

Taxes and kids and trying to figure out the lesser of two evils is never fun but John looks like he knows how to handle it. LOL.

It was nice of your ex to suggest you try it both ways. Poor Tim, maybe you can take him out to dinner to make it up to him (but I would have done the same thing!)

You can always pay him what he would have gotten back from taces and still come out ahead.
