My 3 little dirty tax secrets

Refund

Don’t you love it to get some money back? Well, I know, I do. Now is the time. Why?

It is Tax Money Refund Season.

As we live on just one income, it is highly likely that we get a tax refund. As there are already many information out there, I will only spell my little secrets here.

1) We do it online!

I am serious. A friend of mine told me that they did paper filing.

I don’t think that I need to tell you the cons 😉 for filing online.

 2)  We use two online softwares at the same time.

Different online softwares will show you a different refund amount. Weird, isn’t it. We will, of course, finish our tax filing with the online software, which shows us the higher refund.

 3)   Nonresident Alien?

F, J, M Q visa holders! Staying less than 2 years?

= Refund !!!

Because of tax treaties, you are very likely to get a full refund, if you print off your tax return and mail it in. But read the find print and don’t over stay in the USA. A penalty might awaits you!

If your employer doesn’t help you out in finding more information, read this as a start.

What are your tips and tricks?

Bis bald!
