Tax Day

Since the trailer is at the dealer getting some items repaired we decided we might as well get taxes knocked out. DW has been preparing all of the business expenses for a while now and just wrapped up. Since I do my own taxes I'll be hunkered down in my home office for most of the day. I'd definitely rather be camping, hell I'd rather be at the dentist! Time to see how big of a bite Uncle Sam's going to take this year!

In a shocking turn of events for me, I finished and filed my taxes this past Friday. Mine have gotten pretty simple over the years as I cut out the business filing a few years back.

Your lucky, the current tax code, in book form is about a book 20 feet high. And, growing every year! Who would not want simplification?

Thanks to DW'd diligent prep of the business financials taxes were a breeze. Uncle Sam even owes me a few nickels this year! I don't know the last time I had a refund, I try not to loan the government too much money

Yes, we Americans should be very proud that we now have 71,000 pages of tax laws!! (A crying shame...let's get rid of the corrupt IRS and go with a flat-tax rate.)

We've used Turbo Tax for years, now and just found out there's an issue with Colorado's tax folks because hackers have gotten in there....oh boy!

Friendly site team reminder:

Please don't let this friendly little chat about filling out tax forms, turn into a political anti gov't thing.

I only read a single thing a week-ish ago, so take this with a grain of salt (as with anything I ever say! ).

But, from what I read, it wasn't hackers. The TurboTax software wasn't compromised itself. It was that fraudsters were using TurboTax to submit fraudulent tax returns. Enough so that states started raising flags and TurboTax stopped allowing state filings until they can decide what to do.

I’ve used Turbotax for years and was really looking forward to being able to use it to file my state taxes. It never made sense to me why the federal filing is free but they make pay to file state. I always did it for free through my state’s website but it was a bit of a pain having to fill in all the information a second time when turbotax already had it all figured for me.

I filed on Feb 2. Had to wait for W-2 form and 1099's to arrive. When I was younger I used to wait until April 15 to file but now I rather just get it over with.

Life as a teenager was sure different. A few days before the filing deadline dad asked what I did with the tax forms after receiving them in the mail. I found them in my childhood toybox untouched. Back when I had to file my first tax return I couldn't believe that I had to provide my own postage stamp too.
