...I love the internet!
So here I was, W2 in hand, thinking, "Gee, I'd really like to get my taxes taken care of, but I haven't gotten interest statements from my mortgage company yet, or my 1099 from the Alaska Permanent Fund dividend..."
Turns out, I can get my 1098 interest/taxes info on my mortgage from the lender's website, look up last year's Alaska PFD payment online (already filed for next year's PFD -- you guessed it -- online), find the taxes paid on my second property by looking up my checking account records online, and -- of course -- go file all my taxes online.
So, in about two weeks, cash will magically appear in my savings account...
All without handling any paper except my W2. :)
Yeah, me too, sorta.
Since I was still in college and didn't earn very much last year (or the year before) I qualified for Telex and filed on the 10th.
Mine should be here in about a week. :o
Ah, life is good.....
I too love the internet. However, I have not yet done mine. So my comment is regarding people who gloat :( Grrrrrh!
:) ::gloat:: :)
I do not look forward to doing mine this year. I owe alot :(
Buy a house with a really lousy high interest mortgage... that deduction has saved my tax-paying rear two years in a row. ;)

Huh? Cash back? What's that? :(
I was having a perfectly fine day and run into a thread that reminds me of my tax burden. Not only did that put my day in the dumper, but then I hear that you guys get to deduct mortgage interest? Not up here. We pay full whack on our igloos. :( ;-)

Something a man with enough income to buy an Infiniti on a whim would know nothing about, nor need to. ;)

I'll trade my deductions for some good national health care coverage any day... that refund won't pay half of my annual insurance premiums, and my insurance has zero preventative/routine care coverage.
I think the point I was really trying to make is how darn neat it is to be able to handle almost all your finances online. I hate having to shuffle paperwork and do my own math... hehehe.
(Really, for anyone feeling jealous of my refund, stickymail me and I'll tell you what my annual gross income and/or health insurance premiums were. You won't feel jealous anymore, I promise.)
