I finished and filed our taxes today. It’s always a bit of a chore because I add up all our medical expenses. As usual, we spent around $16k on prescriptions, doctors and dentists; hospitals, x-rays, and labs; glasses and contacts, medical supplies, and “other.” The added bonus of tallying all these expenses is I get to see how much I spent. It’s also at times like these I can do nothing but shake my head at those who think The U.S. does not need health care reform. I suppose this could also be a time to start a tirade over some of the candidates hoping to be elected president next year, but I’m supposed to be avoiding stress.
We’re also getting some money back, which is great, but it’ll just be putting a dent into some of those medical expenses. Maybe some year I’ll be healthy and get to spend a tax return on something fun.
