Tax Season

As April approaches, we're all scrambling to get our taxes filed (well, I've already dropped off my taxes at my preparer's business, but Mr. T is scrambling, as are many others). What folks aren't thinking about is that April represents something else regarding taxes: Sales tax is going to increase.

In the county where we're getting married, the sales tax is going up a full percentage point, to 9.75%. That means an extra $100 on our budget (plus hidden costs like higher sales tax on items we purchase for the wedding).

$100 isn't so bad, but I can't help wishing that this had happened on 11/1 instead of 4/1.
