We are getting a massive return on our taxes this year. It’s twice as large than what we usually get. There are two reasons, and both have to do with the Trump tax bill.
The biggest reason is that the new tax legislation finally encourages people like us to procreate. We never qualified for any child credits because we make too much. And the state always does all it can to prevent people like us from having kids. But thanks to this tax bill, we finally do get child credit.
The smaller reason is that it’s less burdensome to make extra cash with our writing gigs that we do on the side.
Of course, once Bernie or Elizabeth Warren get elected, it’s good-bye to all that and hello to shelling out enormous amounts in taxes so that others can procreate more.
