It is what it is, and for the most part, predictable. The Taxman likes to tax me, and so I keep paying. Pretty much whatever I give the Taxman, somehow he keeps.
I will say that at least in recent years, this year in particular, things are quite streamlined.
I filled my tax return online a week ago and this weekend I got my refund deposited into my account.
Other than the years when I got a small bill, I will say that this year’s $18.10 refund is a record . . . a record small one . . . and that is saying something.
I haven’t had anything larger than a double-digit refund in over a decade . . . but I digress.
The other nice this is that this upcoming tax year 2018 I will finally pay off that “debt” to “my” RRSP *spit*. So that’s nice.
I will not dwell on taxes and refunds. I will instead keep moving forward, looking onward and upwards as I resolve to stay debt free, while I continue to build my wealth.
There is nothing I can do about taxes, so I had best not dwell on them.
I may do a bit of reading to see if there is something, (other than contributing to my RRSP *spit*) in order to lower my tax burden (legal ways, of course).
My main thrust is still savings and working towards getting land, without a mortgage, if at all possible, but I would not rule it out of the right deal came my way.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward.
(If only to stay ahead of the Taxman.)
