Spike does taxes every year for several friends. He is a huge fan of Turbo Tax. Federal tax return is free. State you pay for. He downloads to a zip drive and can go back next year if necessary. Another lover of Turbo Tax. Sure beats H&R Block.

Cool

Blowing bubbles in my garden...it doesn't give an age limit on the container!


Never too old to have some lighter, fun moments ....

I just sitting here trying to figure out what this new pain is I'm having. When you get old, they just keep on coming! LOL

What are you doing?

Whew. Got our taxes done. Actually did them on the iPad instead of the agonizingly slow PC, and without DH screeching from behind me that he could do them much better by hand (he can't, his writing is worse than mine. I always worried about an audit as you can't read it.)

Wink

Perhaps there should be a thread - what do you treat yourself to after doing the taxes! Or is it just me that likes to consume something special after having undergone an ordeal?

I had a glass of wine the first thing when I got home from getting my taxes done Saturday and a great big "whew" because I almost broke even, and it was only 2PM.

Does anyone know if TurboTax is user friendly when it comes to stocks, bonds, capital gains/losses and all that stuff? I'd like to do my own taxes and save the $230 to have it done but to be honest going through those pages makes my head hurt. Taxy, Andy....anyone?

Well, after helping prep my daughter with her tax returns (business and personal) last night, I got too lazy to do my own taxes. So instead, I filed an extension for the my 1040, just in case.... That buys me 6 more months to file. I'll treat myself to a drink this evening. :)))

I have no idea if it is easy. I use professional tax software. Sorry.
