I like them, but I'd like them even more if they gave me more. "Greed is good."

Explain ways in which the IRS has screwed you over. Feel free to include student loan woes.

I got a lot more back than I was expecting to this year. Unfortunately, most of it has to go to fixing and registering my car and moving.

The IRS has screwed me over by not letting me claim my dog and every hobo I've given money to that year as dependents. :colbert:

But for seriously, never had any issues w/ the IRS really. I know my broker 'screwed' me over last year by getting extensions to send out the trout for the Schedule D. So had to wait longer to do them. :-/

Probably all the money will be going towards bills. Fun. D:

I wonder if rich people get tax breaks because they claim all of the plebs as dependents.

End of financial year isn't till July over here so I have to wait till then before I can lodge my tax. I usually get a big chunk back because I take out quite a bit more tax from my paycheck than I need to, this year I'll get it at the perfect time though, right when I'm about to go on holiday and stuff :D

The first time I ever filed my taxes, I wasn't aware that it's common practice to just round to the nearest dollar amount. I was a student and a dependent, and consequently everything worked out to the government owing me a whole $5.13.

I got a check for $513 instead. Probably could have just let that slip, but I let them know they screwed up and got the proper amount back.

They don't have their fucking shit together this year so I have to wait three more weeks to get my money. I've already waited two... :mad:

Once I get my T4/Releve 1 from my work, I am going to file. Thankfully as a student I will get money back this year. Last year I was not a student and I made just into the next tax bracket and got screwed.

Pay higher taxes than you have to, then you'll get back a ton of money next time :)

we're buying a car :D I got myself a coffee maker and andrew got himself a nice pair of headphones. I'm also going to get my hair did. once we get the car depending on how much we have left over we'll probably invest in a nice stroller for the little guy.

i got a pretty sizable tax return last summer but it sort of slowly leaked away on living costs because I wasn't earning a huge amount at the time.

would have loved to have spent it on a shit-box car and driving lessons

Bills, bills, bills y'all. I'm actually going to dump it into my student loan debt. Because I don't like being in debt.

Was going to buy a nice DSLR, but decided to be "responsible." Tch.

I run a business so I have to pay in every year. I haven't received a tax return for like five years.

I kind of miss it actually. It was nice to get that big hunk of annual money to go waste instead of saving for the future. :p

I've ended up owing quite a bit of tax money the last couple of years thanks to my Etsy store. It's poo.

I actually got some W-2s in the mail for my book sales. It feels pretty great. :)

If I get anything back it's going to savings and bills. Maaaaaaybe a new laptop if the IRS surprises me but I kind of doubt they will.

I may not get much of a return this year because most of my fellowship stipend has not withheld any taxes. Fortunately that should basically be cancelled out by the standard deduction, but it may be a wash.

So I found out where my W-2 is. It's at work. They called a few hours ago and informed me. I have no idea why they haven't mailed it to me yet. xD

My dad got a $12,000 tax refund last year thanks in part to me since he used my W2 from my school. Would be nice to pull in around that. :o

Also foa, totally buy the DSLR anyway.
