We are just about ready to ship off our taxes for this year (last year). This was the first year we actually saved receipts and tried to itemize a bunch of stuff that I can get a deduction for as a pastor. Partly because we bought a house last year, but mostly because we don't want to get stuck with having to pay an additional $3000 in taxes again. That was not a nice surprise last year - right after we just purchased the house!
I actually helped this year. Jane and I threw all our receipts from the year - medical, utilities, housing, miscellaneous - into a box, and then we went through and separated them into their respective piles; then added them up.
I think we are waiting on one or two other items and then we'll be ready to send them off to the tax lady. I am really hoping we don't have to pay this year; and it would be nice if we actually got a little money back for a change.
