Happy Taxes Season!
After years of having my dad and our family accountant handle my taxes I decided it was time to be a real adult and do it myself. I felt to so proud of the “I can do it!” feeling I had with this new adult thing. But after I agreed to do it I was worried what I got into ….
April 15th is arriving soon, so I’m sharing a checklist of everything you’ll need to file your income taxes. A lot of recent Post Grad Lifers do not have a lot in their name so taxes are not as difficult as they look. I used TurboTax and since my taxes were so simple I was able to do them for free.
- W-2’s for each job held in 2015
- Any other payments you have made
- Your school Form 1098-T
- Your drivers license & social security number
- Laptop or phone
- A comfortable chair, it can take a while
After lots of clicking and some more clicking NEXT, it was finally done! I encourage everyone to at least do your taxes once before you are married, have kids, a mortgage and a million other things that make you need to get an accountant to do them.
Good luck, everyone!
(&Enjoy your refunds!!)
