I just put in all our tax information into the 2011 tax software. We are waiting on one item then we can complete the return and e-file it. Getting a refund this time around so I hope that item gets here pronto! :)

I use TaxAct every year and this year they sent me a discount offer if I signed up in November, I think. I started putting our receipts, etc in then so when we got our W-2's and mortgage interest statement a couple weeks back that was the only thing I had left. I already filed and got my refund direct deposited last Thursday. I love refunds :)

We are waiting on the IRS to finish the revision of the K1 form (promised for 2-9) then we'll be ready to go.

Doing mine soon! Our taxes are going to be very complicated this year, so I'm not even sure whether we will owe or get a refund, but I just want to know either way soon!

Got my state refund back last wednesday and I just checked my federal should be in the bank on the 1st. Yea!!! I need it as I am out of work right now. Still hoping a bunch of ebay stuff sells too. I want to pay off 2 of the credit cards. That will only leave one with a balance.

I use H&R Block at home because it's less invasive with putting other software on the computer (Turbo Tax did that once too often). Since I'm in a state that does not have a state income tax I always try to find the Basic version, instead of deluxe and premium, because I don't need those. I think I got this year's software on Amazon for $18, tax-free and no shipping.

Blah. I need to do mine and take care of some of my family members... it's always a pain because I usually owe and they always get refunds. :(

I hate doing taxes.

Just finished. Will get a larger refund than last year because of dental expenses this year. Sigh.

Doing them early?! Yikes, I am doing 2010 to 2011! Has to be in by 31 Jan! Last minute as always with me but so hard this year with recovering from my op, trying to find everything and get my brain to work :( I doubt they owe me but I can hope. I have nearly finished so I should know soon. Phew, I hate doing figures and admin stuff.

We NEVER get a refund..... so we wait until the very last minute. No need to pull money out of savings to pay the government early.:mad:

Hoping to do them this weekend. We are both accountants (neither of us on the tax side). Everyone thinks we know everything about taxes and is always asking us to do theirs...we are both auditors. We hate taxes...getting them done ASAP so they can be out of our way. We bought a house this year though so they will be slightly more complicated! Hoping for a refund!! :)

Same with my boyfriend and I. We just bought a house as well. He deals with all the money end because he is an accountant. He does audits a lot on his end as well. I'm just a dental assistant so I know nothing about taxes. I just hope for some money lol

I totally get it!! One of my degrees is in accounting! That is why I do the taxes in our family! Thank goodness for the advent of tax software because it makes it so much easier!

Not yet, still waiting on a few documents. The business end of our taxes has to be completed first before we can do our personal taxes. Doubt we'll see a refund again this year. Hoping we dont' have to pay, don't think we will as we are still depreciating equipment.

A couple of years ago, the State of NC with held State Tax Refunds to people because the State had a Cash Flow problem. The State used the Refund money to operate on. People who were entitled to refunds had to wait until Sept. before they got their refunds, there were a lot of very unhappy people in my state, including us.
