Taxes Done: Refund

January 21st, 2010 at 06:19 am

I had to compete online yesterday with all the other military members to obtain my husband's W2! Once that was obtained, I plugged the numbers into the online tax program. We are using taxactonline.com. I paid $17.95 to print, and efile both income tax returns.

The result is a refund from both the federal and state governments. Unfortunately, the refund is more than expected. Seriously, I can never get us to zero!! I try. I really do.

Federal Refund: $399
State Refund: $728
Total Reunds: $1,127

I was only expecting around $700 total. I'm sure I can find a place to put the extra $400+ !

Currently, I'm holding on to extra cash. With deployment nearing, my husband has expenses that I can't quite anticipate. Last week he bought a new duffel bag and tshirts. We spent about $100!

At some point...that home equity loan will be paid off. Maybe even in one lump sum!

Anyone else have their taxes done?

    I'm jealous! I've been going online nearly every day to see if my W2 is available yet. Everything else I've been able to obtain online or in the mail, and I've already worked out what the W2 is going to say...but you have to include a copy if you send in hard-copy taxes (which I do because I can't find a free way for me and NT and I'm too cheap to pay, LOL).

    This year more than ever, I just want to get it over with so I can focus on other things. Plus (though I'm like you and would normally like to break even), I'm excited to get the $700 we netted this year so I can throw it at one of my 2010 goals.

    Nope, haven't received any of the forms I need yet. I'm not in a big hurry this year, since I'll be owing a good chunk.

    I still need the 1099 from the state for my unemployment. And the 1099 from the FSA office for farm payments. Other than that, I think I am ready to go.
