Tax Weekend and The Money Writers

Posted by Madison on March 29, 2008

This weekend I’m busy crunching numbers. I’m trying to finish up our taxes and despite my organization, we ran into some problems. Our income disqualified us from some expected credits. Luckily I have some room to work with it, but I’m trying to calculate the optimal long-term solution with a few different choices. Stay tuned and I’ll explain it all…. once I figure it out myself!
