So you are one of those people we see on the late news driving by to drop off their tax return

At least I would put mine in the box in the afternoon....


Now that I have a family and different credits etc., I am not as good as getting mine as close as I would like and got a big refund last year.... I will see what happens this year and adjust if I need to ..... I had a 25 year run sending in checks and want to get back on the 'right' side...

I used to do that, but now I just mail it the afternoon of the 15th, then catch the Early Bird Special at the diner. I can't stay up that late any more.

And I'd bet if you asked them what the after-tax cost of the two rooms was, they couldn't tell you.

Related to paying things as late as possible, I used to do this religiously. For example, always pay the credit card bill only a day or two before it was due, to get some extra interest on the savings. Same for property tax payments.

Now, I decided it's not worth the extra hassle, and I pay all bills as soon as they are received.

The entire financial meltdown of 2007-2008 could have been avoided if all of us cheap thrifty people would adopt the "how much a month" mindset.
It's our "Consumer" economy as the talking heads on wall street call it.
