Tax season
Itís that that time of the year again. I just completed my tax return (I know, I'm early). I'm getting $2400 back, so I'm happy (I would have owed $400 if it wasn't for the house and student loan deductions). Itís not going for anything fun (paying off 3 year old college debt, but I only owe $1300 now for school) but its payments I won't have to make in a month or two that I can then spend on fun stuff. What are everyone else's expectations?

Just filed mine on Sunday through (like I've done the last 3 years) and I should have $4300 or so in my account by next Friday (direct deposit rock!)

Lift, tires, rims, bumpers, SYE, DS:D My XJ's gonna do some growing soon.

always better to owe a little bit of money at tax time, then to receive

I haven't done my taxes yet, but hoping I will get a few bucks back. Last year I had to pay like $500 b/c I accidentally claimed too many dependents, but I sorted all that out this past year. Guess I'll just have to see when I get around to doing them this year.

Taxes done as of tonight, will get back a little over 1k, mostly going to pay for LP to keep me warm.

money that you receive back, means money the government has kept from you that it owes you. Ideally you keep all your money all year (plus owe a little bit). Keep that money working for you in investments and savings. Money recieved come refund day, is money that has earned no interest :(

Last year I went to Vegas and won $1600...then I filed my tax return and got another $1550 from that...and so started my Jeep expenses:rolleyes: I hope to be getting a few hundred back this year.

I typically get $2500-$3000 back. I decreased my deductions to try to minimize that. I also made more money this year than the last few years. So I have no idea what my tax return situation will be. I guess I have to wait until I get all my paperwork and see.

In my savings account with 2.5% interest, $1000 wouldnt amount to enough interest to go to a fancy restaurant. Getting money back is just fine with me.

Taxes blow. They just never get enough... :(
