TAXES!

When do you normally file your taxes?

Do you do it yourself or go to someone?

Do you normally get a refund or owe?

When do we file: depends on if we owe! If we owe, we wait as close to deadline as possible. If we are getting a refund, we file immediately.

Plan to actually do our taxes in early Feb., probably that first weekend.

I do it myself. I love "numbers" and don't mind doing taxes. I actually do a friend's taxes, too!

Hit or miss as to whether or not we owe or get refunds. Each year is so different with my business and then with new deductions...

We file taxes as soon as we can. We do them ourselves via internet. We get a refund.

TAXES!

When do you normally file your taxes? Single Amy usually filed them in February -- Married Amy now files them right before the deadline because someone else lets it go until the last minute.

Do you do it yourself or go to someone? To quote DH, we have "a guy" to does them for us. When I was single, I always had someone else do them as well.

Do you normally get a refund or owe? It's been a refund the past several years, but I have no idea what will happen this year.

When do you normally file your taxes? Usually the first Saturday in February (I liketo get it done and my mom is usually off from her dentist office job that day so it works out to drop the kids with her!)

Do you do it yourself or go to someone? We go to a lady at H&R Block. She's a year round employee with them and has been doing it almost 30 years. We've gone to her since 1999 (prior to that my dad did them, he worked for them during tax season only)

Do you normally get a refund or owe? Usually a small refund, we try to keep most of our money throughout the year.

When do you normally file your taxes? asap

Do you do it yourself or go to someone? John has always done them.

Do you normally get a refund or owe? Kris - we think the same way. We like to keep our money throughout the year rather so most years we have to pay a tiny bit. This year we are actually getting a refund b/c of the house.

We always do our own taxes and get a refund each year. We file as soon as we get all of the necessary documents. We have to get both DH and my W2s from work, our tithing statements from the church and DH's school payment statements.

Mine are already done. I do them myself. I always get a refund. I was worried this year as my husband did not have any taxes taken out this year. When I looked at his pay stub there wasn't even a place for it. We better fix that!

When do you normally file your taxes? As soon as we have everything together. We did them this weekend even though it won't be accepted until after Jan 31st

Do you do it yourself or go to someone? H & R Block

Do you normally get a refund or owe? We always get a refund. We always have a lot taken out during the year so we get a nice amount back at tax time.

We just file whenever the W2 comes in. DH files them using the free online program via HR block. We do not itemize so it is super easy and that way we don't lose money to the tax place We get a refund.

When do you normally file your taxes? I work in taxes so it's usually, right before the deadline and /or sometimes I have to go on extension because first I have to deal with my clients, family and friends.

Do you do it yourself or go to someone? Myself

Do you normally get a refund or owe? I like to pay in equal amounts throughout the year so it's usually a small amount that we owe.

When do you normally file your taxes? April 14? No, just kidding. But typically the end of March.

Do you do it yourself or go to someone? Last year was the first year I had someone do them. I had a SAHM who used to be a tax person (yes, very official title) do them for me. It cost $100. I always filed using TurboTax online and it would cost about $30 anyway. With starting a new job and moving, it was nice for me not to worry about it all. I'm not sure what I will do this year. I'm considering just going to H&R Block. I do know I got a LOT more back last year than normal with having someone else do my taxes, so it was worth paying. Plus, D's aunt does his, and will most likely do ours in future years. I'm not sure if it's worth learning the new form (I've always been able to use the 1040 EZ until now) for just one year? At the same time, I like to at least know what I'm doing to look everything over.

Do you normally get a refund or owe? I've always gotten a refund. I expect to this year as well.
