Week in Review – Preparing for Tax Season
I am busy this weekend completing my IRS certification testing as a volunteer tax preparer in the VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) and TCE (Tax Counseling for the Elderly) programs. (More about that in a future post.) Before I resume that painfully slow and detailed activity, I wanted to refer you to some other interesting personal finance reading that I came across this week:

My Dollar Plan lists sixteen tasks that we can do ourselves to save money. I remember when I did a lot of these as a matter of routine. Now I don’t. Time to reconsider.
My writing appeared in several blog carnivals this week:
Well, back to testing. Wish me luck and have a great weekend.
