Ask Taxmama Issue 434 – Warm Fuzzies

Dear Family,

This week included National Teddy Bear Day.!

Several years ago, my brother sent our mom a
Vermont Teddy bear for her birthday. It was quite a

hit, all dressed up to look like a grandmother and with
a little book, coming in it’s own home. (Don’t tear the

Since that worked so well, the following year, he bought

her another Vermont Teddy Bear, in another outfit. Nice.
Then, the year after that, he bought Mom another Vermont
Teddy Bear in another outfit. Uh huh. Then, the year after
that, he bought Mom another Vermont Teddy Bear in another
outfit. Oh no! Not Another one!

Are you getting the picture? Some things are wonderful,

special delightful things. But you can certainly get too
much of a good thing.

If you’ve ever given someone a gift that went over really
well, be creative and find something totally new this time.
The same gift isn’t nearly as appealing next year.

Well speaking of silly, you’ve absolutely got to read

were sent to the Australian Tourism Bureau. They really
are funny enough to cause you to laugh uncontrollably.

IRS News contains only good news this week. IRS explains
how the Savers Credit works. And they tell us about milllions
of dollars we haven’t claimed. If you want to know how to
get your share of that pot…read

Our Job Advice of the Week is to test your e-mails. Not a
bad idea, if you ever see some of the stuff I get from
folks who are trying to make a good impression on me.

That’s it for now!

Have an untaxing, cuddly weekend!

Hugs from your favorite TaxNerd,
