Get Your W2 Online

Preparing for tax season can be a real pain and one of the worst things when preparing is having to wait on companies to send you your W2 form. Whether it's a company you previously worked for or one you work for currently, did you know that you can get your W2 online?

Not only does this help you have everything at your fingertips but it also saves time on waiting on the actual paper copy. That allows you to go ahead and start working on your return so that you can have your refund back as soon as possible.

In fact, check this out:

Many companies, including the military, have their employees W-2’s available online. The documents can be downloaded via a variety of outsourcing companies so the distribution process of the W-2’s are automated. Your employer should alert you as to whether or not you will be able to access your W-2 online.
If they do allow you to access it online, you will get the benefit of being able to file your taxes earlier in addition to not waiting for paper copies, and eliminating the security risks that come along with having that information sitting around on paper. 

Don't wait on someone else when you can have it sooner.

Home Improvement Energy Tax Credits

With tax season just around the corner, you probably want to prepare to get the most credits you can. If you own a home and have done home improvements, one thing you might want to look into is home improvement energy tax credits.

These are credits that you can get for things like:

  • Electric heat pumps
  • Central air conditioner
  • Natural gas, propane, or hot water boilers
  • Oil furnaces
  • Advanced main air circulating fans
  • Biomass fuel stoves

There are quite a few deductions you can take and those are just a few of the credits available. You can also check to see how much of a credit you can get!

We all want to save money and get a tax refund as well so why not check out what you can do to make that happen?

Volmate 16 LED Solar Power Motion Sensor Garden Security Lamp Outdoor Waterproof Light

I love outside lights and especially solar lights. I have the solar lights in my yard to light up the area and a couple of the security lights - which includes this one.

What I love about it is that it comes on quite bright and is simple to use - just afix it to your wall and as long as the top part has sunlight, you're done.

We had an issue last year with someone coming into our yard at Christmas and destroying some decorations. Hopefully the security lights will help with that because if they'll come into your yard for that, what else might they do?

It has up to 12 hours of light after a full charge and the sensing range is 10 feet with a 120 degree sensing angle. 

It's affordable and easy to use so what more could you want in a security light? It's not the biggest but it works great for what we need and we're very pleased with it.

I received this item free or at a discount for my unbiased review.

Found a Vacation

I know, we just got back from New Orleans but I have already found a vacation for 2017. It's a cruise to Amber Cove, Dominican Republic and Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos.

The Amber Cove port is a new one that is opening up in October and is right next to Puerto Plata which is where part of the first Jurassic Park is filmed. I can only hope that Amber Cove actually has tiny insects in amber that I can buy for a cheap price.

Anyway, check out the cruise.
