5 Questions We All Have When Filing Taxes
It’s tax time and we’re all friends here, so we can comfortably say we don’t really know what’s going on. If you’re the child of immigrant parents, chances are this is new for your parents as well, making tax season one of the most terrifying seasons of the year (sorry Halloween).
Let’s take the shame away and openly talk about all of the questions we still have about taxes.
What can we deduct?
It’s already confusing to figure out what you can and can’t deduct as an adult, but throw in other
factors like living with your parents, being one of the main breadwinners of your family, working freelance and taking a business trip… Is your head spinning yet? Because mine is. But don’t worry, the experts at H&R Block can help you deduct expenses like home office supplies, charity contributions, or education expenses.
Will I owe money?
Filing your taxes can feel like you’re gambling. Will you owe money or get a refund? If you end up owing money on your taxes, you might have to kiss your relationship goodbye… at least until after Valentine’sDay because you might not have money to buy a V-Day gift. But, if you get a refund, start planning what to buy your honey because there won’t be an excuse not to! H&R Block has an estimator that will give you an idea of how much you’ll get as a refund or owe the IRS when you file.
What if I don’t have a lot of time to spend preparing my taxes?
If you have done your taxes with your parents, you probably remember waking up hella early and prepping yourself for a full day of waiting in a lobby.
