You know, if you file right after you get all your forms (and legally, they are supposed to be in the mail by the end of January), you get your refund back pretty quick. I think I did my taxes at the end of Feb and had it back the first week of March. Why wait so long?

@rockytrh: I wish I could get a refund, it seems the more I pay the more they want, and my state is worse then the Feds.

@ruger9mm: my state doesn't do income tax but we do have a 9.25% sales tax on EVERYTHING. It sucks but at least I have gotten used to it

I filed over a month ago, but I'm waiting until the due date to pay.

@rockytrh: I got an amended 1099-DIV in the middle of March and had to do extra paperwork to get it fixed since I'd already filed.

I only wait to the last minute when I owe (twice in the last 10 years). The rest of the time I file as early as I can, usually middle February.

@capguncowboy: I would love to have a sales tax over an income tax. That way I get to choose how much of my money gets taxed. If I decide to save some of my pay check I don't get taxed on that money until I decide to spend it.That is why I wish the feds would go to the Fair Tax, I know it will never happen, but it is a great idea.

I always say I'm going to get my taxes done early. This year I actually did. Got them done the first weekend in March.

We filed/paid several pounds of flesh over the weekend.
@capguncowboy: And here I was complaining about our 7% sales tax.

I have to say next to receiving that extra thin envelope from the bank with the pink notification in it, the worst thing to receive in the mail is that fat envelope from the IRS. And it'll come in duplicate if you file jointly.

"Hello from your friendly We're-Here-To-Help-But-Don't-Ask-Us-Proper-Tax-Procedure-Over-The-Phone-Because-It-Wont-Be-Correct-And-You-Can't-Hold-Us-To-Our-Mistakes-Even-Though-We-Assured-You-It-Was-Right-IRS. That pound of flesh wasn't enough three years ago. We now want an organ, and throw in the favorite family pet while you're at it. Interest, you know?"

Yep, I waited, I'll probably file tonight. We owe, so why pay any earlier than needed?

@capguncowboy: MN sales tax is 6.875% with groceries (real food, not prepared food) and clothing exempt + 5.35% (7.05% income tax over 34k). That's double taxation imo. Sales tax, Income tax, pick one. We get taxed on our income and taxed when we spend it (to which that gets taxed when it is payed to the employee we bought something from, who spends it and is taxed).
