“Render unto Caesar…”

Again, it is time to render unto Caesar what he is due.

U.S. IRS Tax Forms

Everyone with an income must file a Federal Income Tax return. Some can file a simple 1040 and do it themselves. Others have personal, medical, or business expenses. They have to include additional forms and receipts and elicit the assistance of accountants.

State Income Tax rates (2023)

Most people must also file a State return. Citizens in seven states don’t have individual income taxes: Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, and Wyoming. State rates and requirements vary.

Tax Refund

For the past few years, we have received a refund from Uncle Sam and the State of North Carolina. As retirees on a fixed income, we are grateful.

Nest Egg

Today, April 15th, is the day. Did you file your taxes on time? Do you owe Caesar or will he deposit a nice nest egg in your bank account?
