    my husband is procrastinating. WE got the federal done early so we could get a car for me to drive, but the local and state won't get done until about ten tonight! LOL!

    Bleh! I did my fed taxes a little over a month ago - since I was getting a refund. My state I prepared with Turbo Tax, but I owed - so I didn't mail it until today! :chuckle

    I was expecting a great return this year...last year, I "made" about 1400$...
    This year was a different story...I am glad I got married but boy our combined incomes hurt during tax time! OUCH...now I have to work extra to pay for our lawn that our tax return was going to pay for...Oh well, at least it is over until next year...

    Boy is our system different!!!

    WE have from June 30 until October to do our taxes. We have PAYE (Pay As You Earn) which means that the tax is taken out BEFORE we get paid - we only have one level of tax - Federal - no state taxes (except on things like cigarettes)

    We have the same system of taking taxes out as you get paid. It is so strange to me that we have to go through all this drama to see if we paid the correct amount, when it should be pretty cut and dry throughout the year. Fortunately Florida has no state tax.

    Don't get me started on the people who live in this country tax free. Those who work, then get $5,000 refunds and go out and buy a new car. Can't blame them, but the system is a little whacked.

    It's 7pm here and spouse is doing his. Going to be one of those people at the post office at the last minute. I got mine done in February and spent my $600.00 refund already.

    Just got done with ours. Damn, I wait till the last minute every year and curse myself for the added stress........but we end up owing State taxes every year (not federal, thank God) and I HATE paying!! :angryfire

    We end up owing state taxes every year, too! That is so strange, I think. I also think this whole tax system is kooky, we do pay taxes out of our checks, plus do this crazy filing dance with these strange rules that change every year or two! ?
    My MIL called me earlier, in a panic, she forgot today was 4/15 and wanted me to do her taxes for her! Excuse me....can you say get a calender?? LOL
