    I'm right in there with ya Nightngale - I too have waited until the last minute. Please note my new little avatar which I plan to solemnly display until after the 15th.
    We had our taxes done yesterday - geez! - I have to pay in about $1400 as a result of working a 2nd (part-time) job last year that didn't deduct enough federal. I am sick about it. I was single when I started that job, and even realized they probably weren't deducting enough - but hey - all that money felt so good at the time! (Where is it now?). The thing I really feel bad about is that - now that I'm married - I feel that my poor husband is having to suffer in some way (we filed jointly) as a result of my wimpy decision not to correct the matter sooner. He's such a great guy and says 'no problem', but I've learned another lesson about living in the moment and the need to be more financially responsible for the sake of OUR future.

    Guilty...but it's not my fault I swear!! My dad is a CPA and over the years has aquired so many family and friends on his "tax" list, that me, his own daughter, is at the bottom but my don't take long so they'll probably get done on Monday

    Don't feel too badly about waiting until the last minute. My friend, who is a CPA, said that the longer you wait, the less likely it becomes that you will get audited because the IRS is so busy in April. Don't know if that's true or not, but we can hope, right?

    Can we file and extension?
    Seriously, my darling husband and I have owed big money for the last 3 years. I estimated this year to be about $1400 more than the big money that was already confiscated out of our paychecks.
    We went to H&R Block. We only owe $187.00. We are cellebrating(not a misspelling) because if we owed another $1400 we would have to submit to a cell because we plain don't have it.
    My pay alone last year was in excess of $50,000.00. Only 13,000 of that went to my checking account. Out of that we had to pay wage and sales taxes. I have heard the term "disposable income", but I didn't realize that the government did most of the disposing!

    I have heard that you can get extensions. Your tax person could set that up for you. It is my understanding that you would have to pay the interest on the money owed.. again I am deffinitely no accountant...

    It sounds like you two need to look at better tax breaks too...

    lol... disposable income = money in someone elses pocket?

    I'm a world class procrastinator! My tax forms are done (son made me sit down and do them when he was visiting), sitting on the table, but I just haven't gotten around to mailing them - and I'm getting a refund!
  13. by   Mary Dover
    Extensions are possible, and forms should be available thru the tax preparer. The form is #9465 and is called an Installment Agreement Request. Definately the route I'm taking. There is interest involved of course, I'm pretty sure the guy that did our taxes said 15%.

    We've had most of the paperwork together since early March, but just sent it all to our CPA (who is in Colorado) last Tuesday. Today I remembered that we forgot to include all of the deductions like insurance, donations, etc., from our paychecks! Big DUH!
    I am too lame and fearful to do the taxes, but would probably give it a try. My husband, who is even more fearful of taxes and the IRS than I am, won't hear of it
