Finally got going on the taxes, looks like a nice refund this year, which is great. Big unresolved variables are IRA contribs this year and whether or not it’s worth itemizing the cars – we had some big repair bills but did not keep mileage records; I couldn’t parse whether or not you can just waive the mileage claim. In thinking about it I would guess not, if mileage is the basis of percentile usage. I don’t think it affected our refund either way but need to run the scenarios.

The wind seems to have passed, hopefully that’s the weather shifting back to sunny.
