· I am working with H&R Block on a paid basis, but opinions are my own.
I asked my kids recently, "how big is a billion?" Their answers were what you would expect from a pair of 5 year olds and a 4 year old. "A lot!" "More than a million" "It goes to infinity!" I just love their responses! I started thinking about how big a billion was when I heard that every year, Americans leave a billion dollars on the table when they do their own taxes. Crazy huh? A billion is such a huge number that it can be hard to visualize.
