We paid for Sashas laparoscopic spay and Cocos medicines.
We also paid some credit cards off and took the truck in for service.

We also saved some for our property taxes for April and Nov

We won't start working on our taxes for at least 3 week as we don't have all the needed information. And I haven't closed my books for 2008 yet-just dragging my butt on that.

Last year we got our first ever federal refund but we also had to pay in to state for the fist time so it may be a wash again. We still have to put monies in Roth IRA yet.

LOL Maybe they can pay me part of what they owe me! I have no idea when they are going to release the funds for those that are getting a refund

I am supposed to get about $1100 back. I have about $6500 in credit card debt from moving last summer so guess where my return is going?

With Federal and State I think I'm getting about $1100. I'm paying off my last 2 credit cards(WOO HOO!!!!)and my wedding dress. If I have anything left it will go towards the wedding

Last year I got over $2,000 back singly, I'm hoping to get AT LEAST that this year. We're also filing jointly this year, hopefully to get a little bit more. H&R Block's tax estimator is telling me I should receive about $1,303 this year filing jointly, but I am not sure how to enter Rob's self-employment-whatever-he-claims stuff and I guesstimated on my income and taxes withheld because my W-2 is in the car. We're going to a tax place to get it done. Last year Rob had to pay $120 to federal, and received a check for $121 from the state

We read something online about 2009's taxes, when we file next year, we should be able to get $8,000 back for purchasing our house at the beginning of this month (and its not a loan like that $7,500 one for 2008's) That surely would be nice.

When we get the return, we'll probably put it away in our money market account. Then we'll either save it to spend on house stuff (driveway, carport, gutters, etc) or put some extra on our mortgage in addition to the extra $200 we already put on each month.

We haven't even started on our taxes this year, but I doubt we'll get much back, and that'll go towards Jamie's prescription cat food, which is really pricey.

I just figured out our taxes. Between federal and state, we'll net a refund of about $650. I'll get the federal refund before I wait to pay the state on April 15th. Kansas has the worst tax rates of any of the 4 states that I've lived in. Almost makes me want to move.

We desperately need some roof repairs before the spring rains hit. I'm sure the refund won't cover it all, but it will put a dent in it.
