    As all-mighty Amazon and the shopper procrastinators come crashing down upon us.

    Harbor Freight says I can order my 150 lb. anvils up to Dec. 23 and its guaranteed before Christmas delivery. That's good to know because I usually put this kind of stuff off until the last minute.

    No worries, you'll get it back. OT is just taxed as if you're making that rate at those hours all year.

    Have @UpstateNYUPSer do your taxes. He will get you at least $50 credit for new shoelaces in your work boots. By now I'm sure he's an EXPERT tax preparer.

    Unreimbursed job expenses, to include union dues, are no longer deductible.

    This is the second year that we can longer deduct these expenses; however, they did more than double the standard deductions ($12,200 for single, $18,350 for HOH and $24,400 for MFJ)) so you would most likely not itemize anyway.

    Nope, all blame should be on Putin and Bezos.

    10k for SALT, mortgage interest 16k, donations $1000. No pmi, union dues, socks, work gloves, flashlight and batteries. That's 3k in deductions I've been robbed of
