Taxes are DONE!

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
There are several things I LOVE about the company I work for, and one of them is that they e-mail me my W-2. The day I get it I go to H & R Block online and file. It's a matter of cut, paste, click, and enter.

Taxes are easy when you don't: own anything, have any children, and only work one job.

I should get my return by the start of next week!

Awesome I'm still waiting for my W-2...most likely it'll be the end of the month before I get mine.

We officially e-filed ours on the 10th and the IRS accpeted it yesterday.

Even with kids (younger ones anyways). This year we filed it ourselves. We bought the TaxCut software from H&R block. It was federal, state, and e-file for 65.00. That sure bets over 200.00 to have someone else do it. We direct deposited it this year so it should be here next week sometime.

I am looking a quite a nice refund this year due to all the dental work I had done.

I will be getting my T4(Canadian version of a W2) on Friday and if all goes well should be able to file my taxes next week sometime.

I agree things go quickly when your single, have no children and only work on job.....however it does put me into a higher tax bracket meaning I pay a ton of income tax. It will be nice to get some back.

My DH and I can't wait to get our return back. That'll help us get a jump start on the bills and then we'll put the rest towards savings for a car.

yea!! I don't have to do my taxes this year since I'm deployed and 2008 taxes will be real easy cause I'll only taxed for about 3 months out of the year. Finally something good about being deployed! But I'll have to file two year of taxes at once and that could be annoying.

The past 2 years DH and I have owed money. My company wasn't taking enough. Hopefully I got that straightend out before they laid me off. Yeah I'm not looking forward to seeing what this year brings.
post #12 of 25
No W-2s yet here either! I remember last year we got them like January 30th.

I was a self employed nanny, so I'll owe this year!

i know what you mean! mine were avail on the 9th, and i had them done the 10th, and had the money on the 11th, on my emrald card.

Congratulations! I sold some stock last year and other things and they do not have to mail you forms until the 31st. And that is exactly when they mail everything which causes a bottleneck in the mail system. It'll be a month before I will be done.

Still waiting on mine as well

I'm still waiting on my W-2s (so is DH...we both work for the same place), as well as my form for the student loan payments. If you are paying on student loans, look into the paid interest deductions.
post #17 of 25
haven't gotten mine yet either, my main job is usually pretty good, should have them soon, but my second job I don't get them until the 31st I really hope I do not owe this year, even if I just break even I will be happy

I got mine from my student loan the other day - along with the one from my landlord
Now I'm just waiting for them from my job I had for a whopping 3 months & this job. .

Man, I wish I could say the same. No W2's here, either... which is a shame, because I'm broke and could really use my tax return
post #20 of 25
No W2 yet plus we haven't received any info on our investments yet. This might be the year we don't have to pay in!!! We usually don't start working on ours until March anyhow with me being self employed and having the farm property too.
post #21 of 25
Funny, my boyfriend and I were just discussing tax forms and 1099s with friends at dinner over this past weekend and that it seemed paperwork has been slow to arrive. I am self employed and my taxes are complicated. I feel compelled to have someone else do them.
post #22 of 25
i don't get my W-2 until i get my January check... which is on the 26th of the month. well, the 25th this month, since the 26th is a Saturday.
post #23 of 25
I've never gotten W-2s before the end of January.

Then DH waits until April 13 to actually file them

Jackson Hewitt Tax Service FTW!!!

Emerald Card, Turbo Tax..........blah!!!.....hehehehe

Sorry, I had too.... we own 10 Jackson Hewitt Offices....

but you are right... our fees are more than the software... but I must say... we spend much of our summers amending Turbo Tax Returns

As long as someone knows what they're doing... they will definitely save money... For those of you w/ 1040-EZs, you can go directly to IRS's website and file for free.

And for singles.... you do have easy returns but pay the most in taxes, they need to change some things to make it fair.

You all would be amazed at the Fraud involved w/ filing taxes. It seems our nation raises their niece's and nephew's more than their own children.... I can't stand it!!!...lol

Not that I have anything against Jackson Hewitt because we have used them for years. But we have had issues with them. Like a few years ago the IRS ended up sending us a letter saying we owned money because of something Jackson Hewitt did. They did get it taken care of but it was not pleasant getting that letter. Other than that it was the price. So this year we did it ourselves because ours is not that hard.
