Have you done your taxes yet?!

Recommended Posts

My DH is getting our taxes done today and I'm mad I can't be there (I didn't get the day off). I was hoping to be there since it's our first time filing together. I'm super nervous we are going to owe $$ (my stomach is literally turning right now). As soon as we got married, we met with our accountant and she warned us we may end up having to owe because we climbed to a higher tax bracket, so I'm really hoping she was wrong msncry.gif

 

So, I'm keeping my fingers crossed because the last thing we need right now is to owe thousands of $$.....

 

What about everyone else? Are most of you waiting until the deadline to file?

we just got our return deposited today! i was amazed we didn't owe NJ. NJ always makes you pay something. but i'm really happy it went through when it did and now we have a nice savings.

 

hope you don't have to pay anything!

We are filing separate for 2008 but I'm anxious to get them done! We have an appt tomorrow. I'm nervous for next year filing as a married couple for the first time. I don't want to owe a bunch either!

We won't have to file jointly until next year, but I am nervous myself. I spoke to the accountant this year - we bought a house this year in both our names but are still single, so I didn't want to deal with the taxes - and he highly suggested we come back in September of this year and he can do a prelimiary estimate. If it looks like we will owe, we can pre-pay some of it to avoid additional penalties and so we do not owe as much when we actually file.

I filed already - I was so nervous I was going to owe money but I ended up getting money back from federal and state - so happy!

We are in the middle of doing ours - turbo-tax style. It calculates the return as you go, and last year we got married, sold our house, bought a new house, moved blah blah blah.....so it is taking awhile to get all the ppwk together. But so far it shows us having a refund so I hope we do get one! FINGERS CROSSED!!

Haha! so funny this thread was started today...I was going to do the same!

 

Actually I don't know why I waited this long to do my taxes! I did them last night and was able to cash in on the first time home buyers credit! smile72.gif

 

Woot! Woot! that will pay for the honeymoon hotel!

I am using turbo tax too (and have been for the past couple of years)
Every year I have this bad habit of saying to myself "oh yeah i donated this or bought that" all just to see how much of an effect it would make on that little automatic calculator!

Last night we were doing mine and I was jumping up and down because of the number it was showing...then FI tells me "um honey the red number means you owe..." censored.gif

I was able to get it back to the green though when I started entering my real info!

My BFF is an accountant. I took my stuff to her on Tues I believe. Its the first time she's doing my taxes (as I was very unhappy with the last guy I had). I really dont care how much I'm getting back I was just worried ab owing bc my parttime job but me in a different tax bracket last year and my accountant told me to cut back on my hr in which I didn't do. So as my friend was looking over my w2 and donation info she said that i sholdn't owe. But she's not done yet soo... She said she'd be happy to see us file jointly next year as it'll really be beneficial to me.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
