I am actually very excited (nervous but excited!) about having our taxes done this year! This is the first full year that Trvais has been ordained which means we get a few tax benefits. A friend of ours referred us to a guy in Virginia who specializes in doing taxes for clergy. I thought it would be complicated having someone in VA doing our taxes, but so far it has been easier than going to H&R Block (which we were planning on doing). All I had to do was download a packet off the internet, fill it out, and mail it to him. I haven't actually mailed it yet, but I filled everything out last night. I was so glad to get it done! I felt like I had accomplished something good. I have never understood taxes...I still don't...but the packet was so dummy-proof, it was amazing. I feel like a real grown-up! :-) (Being a mom makes me feel like more of a grown-up than anything else ever could!!) We'll see how smoothly everything goes from here!
