Me, but we owe, so I will wait until the last minute to file, and even though I am an accountant, I use Turbo Tax - fast, easy, and I don't have to re-type everything each year.

I did mine over a year ago!

Me :(

We're basically done, just have to go back and tweak a couple of things, including our IRA contributions (which I have yet to determine).

Was going to finish it last night - got lazy instead.

I did a quick estimate, was digusted at what I owe. (All of you in the 49% that don't pay income tax, you are welcome.) I will do them this weekend, and starve until next payday, also no buying woot crap for a couple of weeks.

Anyone got any kids they don't want to claim? :p

@ruger9mm: Any time your envy for those who don't pay income taxes becomes too much of a burden for you, you can rectify that just by taking a job that pays minimum wage. Problem solved!

We usually do our taxes in the first couple of weeks of January and file electronically at that time. The one time we ended up owing money, however, we didn't do the actual filing till April 15.

Nope, I owe
So, I'm slow
to pay the bill
It's a lil overkill

I'd pass the buck
I don't give a truck

I'm too lazy to rhyme any more. To answer your question...no, I haven't paid yet as I owe some money. I'll probably even file an extension, as I don't give a truck. (see line 6 of poem)

I finished it in February, but I got married last year and didn't change my withholding until after, so I vastly overpaid and got some decent change back for once.

We all @gmwhit is done with their taxes!

I only have a short form so. did mine the day I got my w2 form. Adjusted my witholdings last year and managed to get 200 dollarsback sate/federal. (Yay for keeping more of my money)

@cowboydann: "We all @gmwhit is done with their taxes!" <--- I'd ask why you paged me & what you were attempting to say... but, I'm afraid of the answer. :-/ (Honest, dear Cowboy, I advanced a week somehow; thought it really was the 17th. I am horribly embarrassed & apologize AGAIN.) An aside: DrChops is looking very appealing to me at the moment. ;-)

My taxes are done. Payment this year, under $200. A HUGE reduction from past years. Have one more thing to say about taxes: I find it difficult to accept the fact that some people pay NO taxes at all, yet get a refund. That breaks my brain!

vote-for4vote-against

I think everyone I know has done theirs...

cough @superheman cough

vote-for7vote-against

I'm working on them right now, right this very second. Uh, maybe not.

vote-for3vote-against

@linuxtrance: FYI an extention only gives you more time to file, the taxes due are still owed by the 17th and fees and intrest start after that date.

@magiccave: Or I could just quit working and get my government cheese.

@gmwhit: haha sorry I'm typing on cell phone currently, and the way popup windowedresponses work, my cell phone she no like. No need to apologize I justt wanted to bust your chops a little bit. You know that though :P

At least you got them out of the way and have this weekend to relax (: also it should have said we all know you got your taxes done already. Or something along those lines

vote-for4vote-against

Taxes! Taxes! We don't need no stinkin taxes! (or in plainer terms ...no)

vote-for4vote-against

Nope. We owe a TON of money this year as DH had to cash out his retirement investments to pay off some debt last year. To make it worse, his employer is in another state (he is their rep here in Louisiana) so they don't withhold his state taxes. We have to pay those every year. I try withholding extra from my checks to cover at least part of his, but we always end up paying.

Our Federal taxes got done so early, I had to submit an amended return when two unexpected forms showed up...

Our state taxes are due sometime in May, methinks, but I'll be sending them in soon. The form is filled out: All I have to do is make a copy of two relevant forms to attach, put a stamp on it, and send it to the bean counters who will invariably say I messed up my form and actually owe/get refunded more than I calculated. ... At least, that's what they did with my paperwork for 2009. For the record: Getting married can complicate matters with the IRS and the Department of Taxation for that year.

@insightpatch: that's why i wait, i give all the forms time to get to me and pile up
i haven't done mine yet, but will. i use Tax Act simply because they already have all my info and i don't feel like retyping as much. and federal is free, just pay for state

vote-for3vote-against

Not finished but nearly so. One more thing on the federal, then state is pretty easy (just transfer the data on a form that auto-adjusts).

I spent almost 7 years in public accounting, and have passed the CPA exam... and no, I haven't done my taxes yet. Lol. I'm a procrastinator. Sometime this week, though, for sure! I did do a quick estimate in early February, and mine will be fairly simple to complete.

vote-for3vote-against

I just got my taxes done last week. My accountant took care of everything, and I'm very happy that I don't owe this year.

I would dry hump my accountant if I could. Worth every penny.

vote-for2vote-against

I apparently over-withhold from my paycheck, and I bought a condo a couple years ago. I've got money coming back from the over-payment and housing incentive money coming in. Apparently, I hate having extra money around or something....haven't filed yet. That's probably for tomorrow, when my fiancee's at work.

@magic cave: last time I had a minimum wage job, I did pay taxes - now I have bettered myself so that I am no longer working at minimum wage, and I still pay taxes.

I am 38 and have been working and paying taxes since I was 15. I have never qualified for state assistance, welfare, food stamps, etc. but have been paying into those programs for the past 23 years.

In the meantime, I drive a 95 Chevy with 160,000 miles on it, live in a 3 bedroom house with my wife and four kids (because that is what we can afford) and have been behind someone in line who bought a candy bar using food stamps at a gas station then got behind the wheel of their brand new Cadilac Escalade.

So, as the other writer said to the 49% who are being supported by me and others like me, you are welcome.

I owe the government money this year - again. They will get it when I'm good and ready, and not a second sooner. And no, I don't qualify for child tax credits or anything else.

vote-for2vote-against

I prepared mine a few weeks ago, just to see how bad it was going to be. Finally actually e-filed them & paid them today. Blergh. :(

vote-for2vote-against

The accountant still has mine, and I am wondering what the damage will be. I could not send the forms along until a couple of weeks ago because the darned brokereage houses have extra time to send stuff to you, and they always do - around the end of March.

Me! Me! Me! :Jumps up and down waving her hand in the air:
