Gayeld said...

Big refund. All spent replacing washer, dryer and refrigerator.

Karen said...

Refund! Helps that I was unemployed for the first 3 1/2 months of last year, probably.

Angie said...

Small refund but its better than owing, I guess.

timebob said...

Refund! and my taxes have been done since Feb. early bird special!

Ashley Greagrey said...

I owe and had to file manually bc someone already filed under my social! Good times

Xander Dyle said...

No clue. Filed an extension as usual. I never have time to get to this stuff until the summer. My "tax time" is always July or August when I can take my time getting it all together.

My father used to say, "If you are getting a refund, you've let the IRS use your money interest free for a year." So I always pay. Fortunately not much.

Refund. All routed to local charities, less $40 for a bowling shirt I've wanted for a while.

Owe big time! Damned IRS! Quit changing the rules all the time!

Popnursing said...

Never a refund. We always owe & Pay by installment. We pay our share, but never one minute before we have too. I work harder for my money than the government does and have the right to spend in on my family first.

Refund; having a child has it's benefits. Just kidding, no, not really.

couriergrrrrl said...

I'm getting a refund, but as I owe past taxes I'm not actually "getting" it.

rejectedcarebear said...

Refund! Bought a new ipod and a flat iron because they were both 5+years old. I filed in January and got my refund a few days before my birthday in February

Elly said...

Refund. I would rather get a smaller one or none. But I really don't want to owe!

S.joy said...

Refund baby!! And it was more than last years :-D

Sherry said...

BIG refund...Biggest I've evr gotten..Sits in the savings account until Cap't Squeako decides he needs something. Which means never gonna be spent and we need a new bed big time.

hag said...

Owe big time!! Paying taxes to two states sucks as well

Cathy said...

Refund! The majority of which I'll be using to finally install a patio in my backyard.

Gayeld said...

@nevermind. Try child plus remodeling. Two years ago my mortgage interest was about $1500. This year is was over $8,000.

Refund!

Amber said...

I'm getting a refund, but my BF has to pay because he's an independent contractor, so we're still in the hole. Lame.

Anna Nonymous said...

Boooo!! I found that I owe them $500 bucks! dammit

Kim said...

Owed the Feds, refund from CA. All together, I'm up about $600.

bflogurl said...

Always owe..

iheartjacksparrow said...

$2K refund from the Feds, but I owe $300 to California.

Patricia said...

Hope you filed a police report!

Snapdragon said...

Refund city. Into savings it went.

I know what people say about not letting the IRS use money interest free for a year, but I'd much rather get a refund than owe. Things are tight enough without needing to scrape up to pay a tax bill of unknown size. Take it from me, month by month, in little bits that I won't miss. We'll settle the bill come Feb.

We relocated from a province with some of the highest taxes in the country (Manitoba), to the one with the lowest (Alberta) in December. Our refunds were so big my husband was re-did our taxes about 5 times before he sent it in.

We always try to maximize our RRSP contributions so we get a few grand back every year.

It's sitting in the bank waiting to help pay for our trip home to the East Coast - airfare is absolutely ridiculous!

Seachica said...

Extension, but will probably owe this year. :(

Maja With a J said...

Haven't done mine yet...I should probably get on that! *L* I usually get 5 or 6 bucks back - but I'll take it over having to pay!

Kowalski said...

I fill out my tax information correctly so I neither pay nor owe. It's pretty nice.

Amy said...

Owed taxes this year.

Me said...

$1k refund, woot-woot! i filed in Jan. So the refund is LONG gone.

Janet296 said...

Refund..we get about $9Gs on our return. Woot!

E3 said...

First time in FOUR years that we are getting a REFUND! Hallelujah!

BreeB714 said...

super jive said...

Owed about $250. Thank Zod I bought a house this year or it would have been thousands. It was an unusual year for me financially.

T. E. Cuz said...

refund. aka i'm getting my money that i earned with my labor and mind.


gee, how generous.

Gayeld said...

@Snapdragon. Boy do I agree with that. I always withhold S-0 or S-1 (once I had a kid,) because I'm not going to save the money and that mythical interest that everyone thinks you're going to get from investing just isn't worth having to scramble to pay them when the time comes.

Jaiden_S said...

None. We owe 10k. The gov't comes for small businesses first. :(

Jenn said...

I am getting a teensy refund which I'll more than likely give to state taxes. The wheel it turns.

LA Mac said...

Decent refund here, hopefully will spend some time in savings, lol

Ashley Greagrey said...

Oh ya! And was on hold 25 minutes today with the IRS to give them a case #

Cee Kay said...

I'm self-employed, so I ALWAYS have to pay. Makes sense, I guess, since I didn't pay anything all year. The best part is all the deductions I get from being self-employed. I pay SO much less tax that way!

Reese said...

What is a "refund"? I've never gotten one. I'm paying enough in taxes to support a family of six in high style.
