    i have an appt tomorrow to get them done. I have NO IDEA why I put it off for so long. I had all of the info by feb 1. I just don't like to do it. We go to the same woman every year. She is wonderful and it takes about an hour. So I have no excuse for not going. I stay on top of everything else..... just not this. We won't owe and we'll prob get a very small refund.

    Are you good about getting taxes done early?

    Dh and I are nerds. Dh must accurately file our taxes on time for the sake of keeping his job.

    This year we needed our ds22, still a college student, to do his taxes so that we could claim him one last time. After he finally had time to come home, we filed mid March- a little later than we like to.

    Another kid aged out of deductions so we owed some. We set that payment up for April 7th.

    We filed federal, but not state or local yet. We won't owe anything, just haven't mustered the energy to do so. :badpc:

    Filed, received refund and spent at WDW March 4-12!

    DH is good about getting them filed early February. As we knew our trip was coming up, he wanted to make sure we had the refund before we traveled.

    We filed several weeks ago. DH works in another state so we had to file there as well. We already received our Federal refund and our second state refund. We owe in our home state so I'm just procrastinating and not writing that check yet.

    Mailed them in February. Had the refund 3 1/2 weeks later. Pretty quick I thought given that we didn't electronically file. Not sure where I am going to spend that $3 state tax refund, maybe buy a McFlurry.

    We're still waiting for the K-1 from an LLC where DH is a partner. There is usually a small loss, but I can't do the taxes without it! I am pretty sure we are going to owe everyone... even though we made about $20K LESS this year, our deduction turned 23, graduated, and moved out!

    Oh my gosh - this reminded me of something. When I was a young teen and lived at home, my mom said they were getting a tax refund. I said I wanted a tax refund. She said my sister and I could have the difference between what they owed and the tax refund! Whatever it was, we could split it! We were SO EXCITED! Spent days and nights thinking of what we might buy! Yep - you guessed it. $7 was the refund we each got.

    Not this year. I'll be doing them around April 1st. We would be getting back about $450, but because of an error DH made the last time he did the taxes, the IRS gets to keep it...so I'm in no rush. DH transposed 2 numbers, giving us a higher income on the W2 part (i.e. he put in 98000 instead of 89000, as an example). He didn't catch it...and neither did the IRS, until 2 years later. Oops.

    I'm doing the taxes from here on out. That was the 2nd time he messed up doing them (he didn't have all the paperwork the first time, and we had to file an amended return).

    We've got them done, but we are waiting to pay what we owe until closer to the due date. Erg.
