    The hubby and I filed as soon as we received our W-2's, but other credits came in, and now we gotta amend it. Luckily we have plenty of time to amend.

    I just filed my parents' today. I was just too busy to file sooner.

            The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. - Anne Frank

                  I went to H & R and they wanted to charge me $250 to prepare my return, and thats only because ontop of my W-2's I had been 1099'd by the production company I work for as well as my independent contract work, grrr. I went to Staples and bought the Taxcut software and only paid like $40, and got back a pretty nice refund. Though until my friend had brought it up earlier I had forgot to mail in my city and state taxes, thankfully I got to the post office just in time.

                    ATTENTION: To all non-Indians - Natives do pay taxes! LOL!
                    Oh geez, don't I know it! Some people just don't get it. They think native individuals are exempt from paying taxes, and when I've tried to explain that we do pay taxes, some people tend to disbelieve anyway.

                    In Texas, we don't have to file for state taxes.

                      With all the 1099s and itemized deductions I do, I had to pay $450.00 for my preparation fees, but I do get a chunk of change back from the Federal and the State. It pays to have mortgage interest and track all business-related expenses as well as health/dental/vision expenses in order.

                        I got my W2s on 1/31, my wife's income is -all- contract. We have lots of medical expenses, so I keep track of those as they come in as well as file and pay quarterlies (because of the contract work). I filed our taxes on 2/1. We got our refund quickly and I definitely have been stimulating the economy!!

                        I also do our live-in PCA's taxes and did those a couple of weeks later. My unemployed nephew and his very pregnant wife showed up at our door step, refuges from the economic troubles in Michigan. I did my nephew's estimated and filed for an extension, as he was a little pre-occupied on tax day. My grand nephew was born on April 15th *grin*

                        I've used Turbo-Tax since the early 90's. Turbo-tax is online and this makes it very easy to do the returns, since the software will transfer information from the prior year. Prior year taxes are available as downloadable pdf files. My bank gives me a 15% discount on the cost of using Turbo-Tax so it's all good.

                            It seems that all the 'what are you reading now' threads have died and I decided to make my own thread for books.

                            Post what you're currently reading, ask for recommendations or give recommendations, post what books you got most recently and anything else book related.
