I finally got the Google drive storage down to actually even lower than I was shooting for. I have a 17 GB of free storage. I now am using 4.7 of those. And... I still have easy access to all my stuff from everywhere. Success.
And the CPA who does my taxes called to say preliminary results show, no taxes again this year.
There are two kinds of retirement plans you can pay into. When you put money into a retirement account, you can take a tax credit or not. IF you take a tax credit, then, when you are old and draw out that money to live on, you have to pay tax on it.
I'm sure way back when, Mr. Finance asked me what kind of retirement fund I wanted and I'm pretty sure I told him whatever he thought was best. He put my money into one of those that did NOT take a tax credit at the time.
Soooo, now I get money from those investments every month and do not have to pay any tax on it at all!! Sweet. I get a little money from IBM (retirement funds) but not enough to require income tax. So, I'm pretty much a tax free chick. And will be for a long time if not forever. (Some of investments are not in retirement funds so if I ever have to withdraw that principal, Uncle Sam is going to want a cut.)
All in all, a pretty nice Saturday. I think maybe I'll go make one more doll before I settle in to watch some TV.
