...and he's taking this year. dammit- for the first time in over a decade we're not getting a single penny back from the feds. having a part time job as a 1099er sucks.
I owe on both. Wife made too much money last year for my taxes to cover her like they usually do (I just eliminate one exemption I'm entitled to take). $93 to the Fed and $270 to the state and then another $180 to the tax man for preparing it.Chain said:If not for what we owe the feds, I could get a D90. Getting a bit back from state, but not enough to cover the feds.
No <del>shi</del> kidding! I'd rather pay in, as long as there's no penalty involved. They don't throw you extra cash when they owe you a lot of money...Creakyknees said:I managed to just barely avoid the penalty for under-withholding. about as perfect as it gets IMO.
and it still makes me roll my eyes when people talk about "getting money back" from the gummint. what a scam.
I think the best I ever did was come within ten bucks. Paid the feds a couple hundred and got almost the same back from State.Len J said:For the 10th year in a row, the net owed/refunded is under $100.....it's a game with me.
