Your Two Cents: Are You Thinking About Taxes Yet?

When my fiancé received his W-2 in Friday's mail, it became real that another tax season is already upon us. Have taxes been on your mind in 2009?

I received on W-2 and will file shortly. I really need my refund to pay things down and possibly take a small vacation.

ASAP! I got my W-2 the other day and just waiting for some other forms. I love doing my taxes! I know it's weird...LOL

sierra16, my understanding is that yes, the stimulus checks will be deducted from your refund. I guess the check was basically just an advance on it.

Does anybody know if the stimiulus checks we received last year are going to be deducted from this year's tax returns? As in any refunded amount we may be getting?

I'm already thinking about it, but I haven't gotten my W-2 yet, so I haven't done anything. We bought land this year, so that'll be sort of a pain because we're on a land-contract with my father-in-law. We have all our documents that we need, so I'm hoping it'll be smooth. My dad is already getting geared up...back when I lived at home and had a part-time job, every January he'd say, "Alright, Brit, it's TAX TIME! Get your W-2s and your forms and let's get going!" And we'd do our taxes together so we could get our refunds ASAP. For the longest time, I thought you HAD to file as soon as you got your W-2...I never understood that you had until April 21 to file. I think I figured that out when I was in college and one of my friends waited that long, lol.

I pay estimated taxes, so I think about taxes a few times a year.... but I still have Jan 15 estimated taxes to pay, so I haven't started thinking about any more taxes than that yet.

chaton, maybe you could make a little fib and say you need to make an appointment to get your taxes done, so you need to know when you're getting it so you can make the appointment?

Yes! I am so excited about my refund. Just waiting on my W-2.

this is going to be a much more confusing year for us, as we bought our first house, but I always keep a folder for tax stuff and keep an excel file to keep track of everything

I haven't gotten my W-2 yet, but I hope to get it in the mail soon! However, I recently found out that the state of CA might be issuing IOU's instead of giving us a tax refund. I'm so mad about that!!

Haven't gotten my W-2 yet but once I do I can't file right away because there are a ton of other paperwork I have to wait to get. And this year won't be pretty I have to pay taxes on my son's inherited retirement savings that he received when his dad passed away.

I want my W-2s! My job has an accountant, is it tacky to ask him when the hell he thinks he might get around to doing them?

As soon as we have all of our documents, we'll be filing. We haven't gotten a single one yet though, so it's going to be awhile.
