I love getting reimbursed for spending

July 18th, 2007 at 12:52 pm

There is nothing better (ok, maybe there are some things better) than getting reimbursed for money I've spent and pretty much forgotten about.

Yesterday, my boss gave me a check for $580 to reimburse me for my state license renewal. I paid it a couple of months ago and submitted the receipt. So my finances all reflected that money already spent. Getting it back is like a little bonus. Plus, I had charged it to my rewards card so it amounts to free points.

Same thing happened with our NYC trip last weekend. The theater tickets were a gift from my mother, but I had paid for them a few months ago also with my rewards card. She gave us a check on Sunday to reimburse for that, so another little bonus. She also has traditionally given us some money each summer toward DD's camp tuition. We never expect it or count on it, but we certainly appreciate it when she does so. The check she gave us Sunday included some money toward camp also.

So it's been a good week for "extra" money.

    I seem to remember something about business reimbursements being taxed this year as income. You might want to keep track of it.

    LuckyRobin - I'll have to remember to ask my accountant about that. I hope that isn't taxable.
