Well it’s that time of the year again… The time when PFC’s and Lance Corporals across the Corps learn how to do their taxes for the first time in their fresh adult lives. For the average young Marine, they’ll find they most likely get a nice refund, as most states tend to pay back in full any taxes paid while active duty (at least that’s how it was for Oregon).
This money will be cycled back into the economy in a number of ways, though most likely through the thong of a stripper in Oceanside in the form of a crisp $1 bill.
Anyway, I don’t have much to add. I just paid my taxes today and I’m going to go cry. Late update today, cause Mike Dowling invited me out for his birthday with about 5 minutes of warning, so I’m writing this from a bar in North Hollywood.
Stay tuned, lots of good stuff coming down the pipeline in Terminal Lance land.
Oh one last note! I’ll be at the Los Angeles Book Festival on April 23rd from 12:00pm – 1:00pm on a panel and book signing. If you’re in the LA area come by and say what’s up! The details are here.
