Voting & Taxes

Did YOU vote? We DID. It took like 5 minutes to get checked in, then about 2 seconds to cast my ballot! Woohoo!! Felt good! Plus it was fun to see several familiar faces when we were there (it was at our kids' school).


Thank goodness for this AWESOME website - TurboTax!! I have been using their online service for our taxes for several years now! Totally LOVE it! Plus it's so easy & e-filing is so fast! I am finally done with our taxes tonight & e-filed!! YAY!!! I always enjoy doing our taxes and even doing a little pre-tax projections a couple months before the year is over to get an idea of where we're at. I know it may sound boring & icky to some of you (ok most of you) but I love it! Althought this year I was dreading just a little because it seems like each year I have more forms to fill out, so it gets a little harder each time. One of the forms we received didn't quite have all the info I needed, so Ben had to print out some reports for me (we sold some of his company stocks earlier in the year so we could finish remodeling our family room) so I could get all the info I needed to complete our taxes. Whew! I've been trying for a few days to make sure I had those reports figured out and all the info matched up. Gotta luv those crazy reports & charts! But now it's DONE!! I just have to wait 24 hours for our Federal & State returns to be accepted, then wait for our refunds (the best part)!


Have you even thought about your taxes yet??? Do you enjoy doing them?? Do you have someone do them for you or do you do them yourself??

You're a crazy chick sis! Lol. I hate doing taxes.. and mine were done Sunday night. Tony did them for me in literally 5 min. Of course he did it the old fashioned way and I printed them out at mom/dad's tonight so they're going out in the mail tomorrow. At least I didn't have to pay anything this time nor the Turbo Tax fees! With what little I get in return, it really helps!

Last year I owed money... so it's nice to actually have a little coming to me. I've been anxious to get all my W2s to get my taxes done so I can now re-apply for FAFSA and I'm that much closer to being prepared for school! Woohoo!

You have a little far too much enthusiasm for doing taxes girlie. But whatever floats your boat! Lol :)

Andrea, I love doing taxes too, but only for the refund !! I've got mine almost ready and can't wait for the refund.

this is one of andy's favorite times of the year. yes, he does them. i would also love to do them, but i don't have quite the same passion about it that he does! i did do them the first 2 years we were married until he took over. so funny that you love them too!!!

We did ours thru H&R Block(Not what I wanted, but it's not really my deal, so I'm stuck with whatever) and we are getting a really nice refund (thanks, kids!!:) We already have our return!

Got mine started! I like doing them . . . not sure why, but I do! Just waiting on ONE MORE W2 - - the employer forgot that we were employeed! THANKS dude! So, a W2 that should have been here isn't and I am ANTSY! I WANT MY REFUND!!

Have you ever thought of being a CPA or working at H&R just during the tax season. You would probably have a BLAST, especially since you like to do your own. You could get paid for it and do whole bunch of people's taxes and earn ways for them to get returns. You would be good at that!!
