Intaxication: Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realize it was your money to start with.
And it starts….! Tax season is here, and there is not getting around it. I really hope many of you do get intaxicated this year, because that might the only personal stimulus plan we currently have. Until you see that big number deposited into your account, you never realize how much was skimmed from your paycheck over the last 52 weeks. it is so worth the time to fill in those little numbers in your tax prep software, or into those little slots on your 1040A if you are doing your taxes old skool. Seeing that big number you get when you add up deductions, write-offs, and business expenses is really the beginning of intaxication. Filing that report gives you the relief that you know it is done for now, but that the big money high will be coming along later, on a cash card, as a check, or by direct deposit. You will whoop and holler when you see that big number, and start listing all the fun things you will do, or all the great things you will buy with that refund, but then you will come to terms with it. It was your money, you just did not get it all at one time like you are doing now. There’s nothing like some reality to stop you from being intaxicated.
