    I Finished a Day Early!

    Yep, we all know what tomorrow is (cue evil sounding music ... dum de dum dummmmm) Tax Day!

    I have been a tax procrastinator for the past 20 years or so, ever since the very first time I owed them money. I was usually done with my taxes by mid-January at the latest, until that dreaded year. I did all the forms and what not and found out I owed! I was ticked! I kept my tax forms and check until late evening of April 15th and mailed it out then. Funny thing is, all I owed was $100.00. I think the most I've ever had to send the feds since then was $1666.00.

    Anyway, I just finished the taxes a little while ago. My daughter is getting almost $1500.00 back in combined federal and state taxes. My hubby and I are actually getting a federal refund this year!!! Hold on to your hats - a whopping $33.00!!! Haha, of course we owe the state $70.00 and turbo tax cost me $120.00 this year. Still, all in all that's not bad for us. Just glad I don't have to send them as much as my daughter is getting back, it's happened that way before too ...

    Today is my daughter's birthday. My dad came into the recovery room after she was born, looked at both of us to check out that we were OK and said, Goodbye, I have to go home to do my taxes! Luckily, my hubby and I already had ours done!

      Hehe, at least he put you and the grandbaby first!

      If the IRS would send us a charm pack or two it might be easier sending them money ...

        Today is my DH birthday and our tradition used to be...dinner out then stop by post office to mail taxes (we try to plan so we pretty much break even, no big payments or refunds) but now with e-filing the tradition is no longer happening.

          LOL Karen. What's the rush? You still have lots of hours til the dum de dum dum music. I just finished ours yesterday not because I didn't want to do them. I was just too lazy to go out and get ink for my printer. Only getting a small return; not much to put away for a new sewing machine, but better than paying.

              If I know I'm getting a refund I ALWAYS submit early ...... but when I have to pay I like to hold on to my money as long as I can. I love it the years when the 15th falls on a Sunday and I get an extra day to pay.

                Yuk! Thankfully the accountant at Scott's work does ours every year. All I have to do is get it to him and then Scott takes him out for lunch as payment. I despise taxes! Makes me ill to see how much I pay in and how we STILL owe at the end of the year.

                    We filed our taxes this past Saturday. Our tax preparer sold the business and we had a new tax person after 30+ years...the jury is still out on whether we'll keep using her.

                      I owe I owe...just gripes my soul! DS owes 1500.00...he is despondent....as this will wipe out his nest egg....he is considered an independent contractor...and wasn't putting money aside...and since I still claim him...because he's I college and I'm paying. It irks the heck out of me that I have to pay room and board for dd and cannot take any of that off....but if I want to buy a vacation home I can take the interest....oh lord,,,gettin wound up....better to just move on

                        Been filing single now for 2 years. My refund dropped from well over a thousand to now under a thousand. I guess I do not make enough to owe. So I am thinking I would love to make a lot more money, than I think I could deal with having to pay a bit. Having a lower salary and getting back several hundred is definetly not better. Lol

                        My middle daughter was born tax day, 37 years ago. We still call her our tax baby.

                          Yep, I understand that completely. I get paid as an independent contractor too. It's a pain sometimes trying to keep up with and figure everything out.

                            Ya Karen, it really is...and really he isn't an independent contractor when they require him there at a certain time, determine his duties while there, and he can't leave until everyone is done. That's considered a job and it's just this companies way of getting out of paying taxes...I heard they were being investigated.....so maybe he will get some of it back!

                              The other thing I really have a problem with...and please I do not intend to offend anyone with this statement...just my feelings on the situation...is earned income credit....how as a government do we give someone a refund of more money then they paid in??? That just doesn't make sense!
