Tax time

It's a new year, and that means taxes. It'll be another month until I get my tax information, I assume, but I'm pretty interested in finding out. Since I only worked for half a year but got taxed as if I worked the whole year, I'm sure that MS over-withheld. Also, this year we get to decuct sales tax from our income, which will actually reduce my income quite a bit. And, I made some decent-sized charitible contributions. The scary thing, though, is that the cost of my medical benefits and relocation benefits (packing and moving forty boxes worth of stuff halfway across the country isn't cheap, and neither is a free month of rent) are going to be fully taxable. This might be the first year that I actually have to pay taxes because of the relocation benefits. I guess it all depends on how much more they deducted than was necessary. Here's hoping that the numbers work out in my favor...
