Ah, nice. I’m not expecting one, but then, I don’t pay taxes either since I work abroad (and as a bonus, I also don’t have to pay taxes to the other country either!) so it probably evens out.

I have reasons to expect I might get one this year. Last year, I had to pay because of all my financial aid in excess of tuition and student fees. I got my 1098 for this year and it appears I won’t have a problem with this. The only question is whether or not taxes have been coming out of my checks for my stipend. It looks as though they have because there is a larger amount on top and then a smaller amount that I actually receive. I’ll be really bummed if I end up having to pay again. A windfall from the tax returns would be really nice.

ETA: Anything we get from the tax returns will go to wedding/savings account. (Whatever we have left after the wedding is our savings.) FI might buy himself some Magic cards.

I am getting my dream ring!! Currently I have a CZ in stainless steel. Once FI’s tax return comes in, we are ordering my moissanite solitaire that I have been drooling over for months. I cant wait!!

I won’t, but DH will.  And since my money is my money and his money is my money … Smile

It would be awesome if we had a house at that point, so the money would likely go towards the mortgage, investments, or furnishing the house depending on where things are at that point in time.
