I got my taxes done yesterday. One of my colleagues recommended the guy he's been going to for a few years. He told me his guy will definitely get me money back regardless of my concerns about the capital gains and the money I received as a part of my inheritance. I went in there without high expectations of how much I would be getting back but I was so wrong.
I have never been so turned on my a tax return in my life.
Let's just say that the amount of money I will be taking to Italy with me will GREATLY increase once this return comes in and it may make the difference between which of the two bed and breakfasts I stay at while I'm in Venice.
To say that I was thrilled with the results is a true understatement.
