The day after

Link 222 wants to know how the tax filing process went for folks out there. Did everyone do his own or get an accountant to help? Did you e-file?

And are your state returns finished along with federal? Did anyone actually file taxes early?

Since it's the day after April 15, did anyone celebrate? Or at least relax a little?

Let us know what's on your mind!

I filed mine at the base tax office and sent them electronically. For the first time in quite awhile, I had to pay out. The man said it's because I was filing married filing separately. (I've been divorced since I filed.) So I didn't really celebrate. I made sure to get my checks in the mail so they're out of my hands. One has already been cashed.

Oh, and that reminds me that I need to go change my tax filing status at HR back to "single." *Note to self.*

10:45 p.m.
That's what time I filed mine using an online filing company. I even had to push the "file now" button a few times because I kept getting a message that the system was backed up. So I guess I wasn't the only procrastinator.
So sad.
I do feel relieved though.

Stephaine, I had to pay too. My first time ever. A lot of other folks I know had to pay for the first time too. I remember the days when I filed as a dependent and got all of my taxes back.

Those were the days...

Wow, well thank God I didn't have to pay (though I wonder should I have just put that out there in cyberspace? The IRS terrifies me!)

I gave the federal government an interest-free loan. So they're giving it back. I'm ready to get that check!

Stephanie Bemrose said...

Wow, Donecia, yeah, um, I don't think you should have admitted that. Now Uncle Sam is going to hit you harder next year. He's thinking: "Look out for that Donecia lady ... she TOOK our money last year."

And, Adam, it's so true that you give them an INTEREST-FREE loan. I made my payment in one check, but the tax guy said if I didn't pay it ALL up front, then a) they would charge me $50 to send me paperwork for a payment plan and b) they would charge me interest. Uncle Sam definitely doesn't play fair!

(Ooops ... did I say that out loud? I mean I LOVE you, Uncle Sam!)
