I’ve been looking forward to my 2019 tax refund for a while now. I currently work as an accountant and I know that we do taxes for a lot of other small businesses. We tell them the amount of their potential refund and if they can expect it soon or not.
It’s always hard to see people become disappointed and realizing that the wait is going to be a little longer than expected. That’s not what happened with me though; I was surprised when I found out how much my refund was going to be! I was expecting it to be my standard $3,000, but my total refund ended up being $5,000.
I was so surprised! My friends all told me they were happy for me and knew that they would most likely get the same amount of money back if they got their taxes done by me too. They said that they’ve never heard of their accountant giving them $3,000 back!
I can’t wait to get the money in my bank account so I can finally do some Christmas shopping early this year instead of waiting for the very last minute.
