How I’m Celebrating Purim on a Dime
Two words: tax refund. I use Turbo Tax to file my taxes because I have been using them for years and I’ve always been happy. Why mess with a good thing?
Thanks to the earned income credit and the child tax credit we are lucky enough to get a nice chunk back from the government.
We always give Maaser (charity) from the refund because we consider it income. We try very hard to always give Maaser even though things are tight: I think it’s important to remember that even though we aren’t rich: we do have everything we need and a lot of what we want. Not everyone is so lucky. We transfer the money into a separate account and give it out as the opportunities come up.
