It’s that magical time of year when the government is kind enough to give us back some of our own money.
The tax system is a scam, made so ridiculous and complex it is bewildering to the common citizen.
People have to study for years to understand the tax codes. They are made so complicated so that only the rich and powerful who can afford accountants will benefit. I don’t mean to rant and rave, I’m just happy I get a little bit of a tax refund, because I have a major problem with my air conditioning and the summer is rapidly approaching. The winter was a cold one, and since my central HVAC system was on the fritz my place stayed almost as cold as outside. I had to go to Walmart to get a cheap space heater just to make it through some of those cold nights. The space heater was weak, and I had to move it with me when I went from one room to the next. I’m glad I live alone, because carrying the space heater into the bathroom when I needed to pee would have been embarrassing for anyone to see. I do not want to try and do the same thing with my air conditioning. I know they make small, portable A/C units, but I really don’t want to have to carry it around the house with me all summer long. If my tax refund is large enough I can pay an HVAC tech to come in and repair my central system. Fingers crossed!
