    sunshineno5:  Honestly I dont think you should stress about this. His mom already knows and is blabing and if some one knows the stats they could guess around what you paid. No I wouldn’t tell someone who just asked but stepmom does the taxes and you should just come to peace that she will know, figure she knows how much your student loans are (or your FE’s) and I kind of feel that is more personal.

     Not only is it confidential, but disclosing client’s financial details (even if family) could lead to her losing her license. Also, I too am interested in how the sales tax is deductible

    sunshineno5:  Well just remember that you can’t control others people’s thoughts and feelings, only yours! If she has a negative reaction to the price of YOUR ring, that’s her problem!!!! Don’t let it bother you or stress you out!!!

    sunshineno5:  “suppose nixing the ring cost from taxes is an option…although I’m pretty sure the stepmom will ask about it. ๐Ÿ˜” “

     

    if your ring is already a hot topic, im sure she will take the opportunity to ask. You could also just tell her you guys aren’t planning on writing it off. Then there is no classy way for her to keep asking how much it cost. Honestly, if you really don’t want her know, the money saved from the deduction wouldn’t be worth it to me.

    sunshineno5:  

    Two things:

    1. I dont consider parents and siblings in the same category as friends and family. I dont think its rude at all to tell parents how much someone spent as they are now your inlaws.

    2. You didnt buy the ring for yourself! Fiance bought the ring and Fiance decided to spend that money….so if she does get upset it should be at Fiance not you. And you can deflect any comments to that ๐Ÿ™‚
