Good news! We actually got a tax refund this year! God is so faithful to provide!

We pay our taxes quarterly, so last year I sent in the same amount that I usually do. Most years we still have to pay a little extra.
Then as I was doing our taxes this year, I came across the Making Work Pay credit. I'd never heard of it, but was 'shocked and amazed' (favorite phrase of mine) to find out that we actually qualified for it! :)

Our refund isn't thousands of dollars, but it sure beats having to pay! It's going straight to savings for now.

I don't know if it will help any of you last-minute filers out there, but at least check it out.

Hope you're all having a great week. :)



  1. wooohoo, Glad to hear that :)
    I finally took ours to finish getting things for the house that has been long over due, Painting all the rooms inside, New refrigerator, and things.

    *Hope you have a BLESSED Week :)

  2. Great for you guys - I'm glad for you! It's neat how God sends these little blessings into our lives every now and then, isn't it?

    I hope you're having a great week my friend!

  3. Thank you - I am going to ask my husband about it. I am so glad you got a refund! What an awesome surprize.


  4. we got our taxes done yesterday and HR Block and we qualified for that (and she said that it will still be good for next year too so remember that :)

    glad you got a refund!!! (we did too but only because we got to claim our 21 y/o who didn't have a job last year and we were supporting him, but hey, I'll take it any way I can get it :)
