It was amazingly much easier than I thought it was going to be to request 1098's from both former lending institutions that had my mortgage before they both sold them off. It was a matter of calling them and simply asking, giving a lot of personal information, of course, to identify me but now? 3 business days max and I will have all the 1098's that I need to modify the tax years 2007 - 2010. The modification is necessary to include the house fire carryover which will net me quite a large chunk of change, DEFINITELY worth the effort and even the expense to pay someone or an online thing to make sure it isn't flubbed up and that I get every penny I can out of it. I would like to get this done and turned in before August 3rd, lol.
If you don't know what allegedly will happen on August 3rd, then just read the news, any news, it's all over the place. The U.S. will allegedly default on it's loans and the earth will end, it will just disappear out of sight and we will all cease to exist. That is the kind of hype they are making this sound out to be. Definitely, they are declaring world-wide financial chaos the likes we have never seen if this happens. I don't know, that's all coming from the Obama administration and his ilk and considering his past of the lack of actually imparting the entire truth, well, I simply remain neutral until the day comes and goes and if there is no deal, see what happens.
Basically, I want to take a whole pile of papers to an accountant somewhere, dump it on whoever, let them go over it all and see how much they can eek out for me. If it costs me $500 to get $10,000.00, it's money well spent. I do expect to net at least 10 grand out of it, at least. If it goes like I got for 2007, then there is the potential for up to 18k out of the Feds and State, that is, if they have the money to give me back, lol. I can't even imagine having that much money in the bank. Just sitting there, waiting to be blown in a lavish vacation to the Bahamas or maybe a world tour of all the places I want to see. A 30-day cruise all over the place, who knows!
Okay, that is all a bunch of hooey. I am not going to waste a bunch of money on a temporal and short-lived trip, though it would be awesome if I could! No, it would afford me the opportunity to do some upgrades to my house and still have quite a lot left over after I was done. Or, it might afford me to find a rental property somewhere - go to those property auctions and see what might happen. But you know what? If I could blow 2 grand on a trip to Italy or England and have a lot of money left over in the bank, I would SERIOUSLY consider it.
I have decided against the trailer that the man has now decided to give as a straight across trade. My trailer, actually, is better than that thing. I just didn't realize it until giving it focused thought. I have too much on my mind right now with a lot of different things that are completely unrelated to each other going on.
I uhhh, have so much of that going on right now, I am finding it difficult to even finish this entry.
