    It's everybodies favorite time of the year, tax time!!!! Most of us should be receiving W2's soon or have already received them. Post any tips for getting the most out of your return or what you plan on spending your tax returns on.

    I'm itching for my paperwork so I can file... I want my return so I can pay off my last loans, that way I can be back to the paycheck I was at before our lovely governor decided to raise our income tax another seven FUCKING PERCENT.

    Yup... Kinda funny... Taxes are up 7%, health care went up about 12%... Cost of living adjustment... 1%... Makes sense...

    Pro tip: Don't have kids for the tax deduction. The damn things cost more than they save you in taxes!

    Not even close to being an expert, but as far as I am aware, you can only offset losses against future gains. The government is not going to pay you to lose money. But you will have a deferred tax asset on your balance sheet that you can apply towards future profits.

    I think. Only had one tax class though.

    You should give doing your own taxes a shot, Even though I have an accountant I do my own first and usually come up with what he does. Could use free taxact.com or buy quicken turbo tax which I did, Makes it very easy. Makes things simple since it can download things like your W2 right from payroll company and also info from investment accounts. I really like doing taxes and have the software and would be glad to give you a hand if you want, and unlike having Jeff's help you wont end up in jail

    If it was just your earned interest your personal exemption would have probably kept you from owing anything. So basically just paying taxes on the your free Obama unemployment money. So really not that bad

    I think...gasp. I am going to do my own taxes this year. Everytime I pay a "professional" I get a bill a year later.

    I have no more issues with iRS. But massDOR doesn't like my mileage write off. Awaiting my hearing to prove them I don't owe them 12710 from the last 4 years.

    I hit up H&R block online. The last 4 years I have gotten a return, and I can have it done rather quickly. I do not have a lot of misc accounts though.

    If you're getting a bill a year later, you really have the wrong person doing your taxes!

    Every two years I have to go to NYC to a hearing to prove I don't live more than 180 days in New York City. They keep attempting to tax my income in MA because I own a condo in NY and obviously live there. The days I do work in NYC, I actually have to record the start and stop times so it is in our management system my hours worked there. It ends with an affidavit from me, notarized, that I worked these hours in the state and do not owe taxes; when they balk at the hearing I mention officer of the court and produce a bar card then they close the case and 24 months later decide I am a resident of NYC all over again.

    Do you use a form for your write off mileage or do you record it in a little notebook? Usually if this is a recurring problem, you simply bury them with a simple form with the in and out mileage, date, and time on both ends. If it were me, and I had a question about the forms, I would go to my town hall and see the town clerk and have him or her notarize your form for two bucks. What hacks hate is an official stamp on anything, it makes them cower because that kind of thing shouldn't normally be on your documentation.

    Can't wait to get my $$ back. It's going to pay off my CC and Vette.

    Letting my fav polish tax office in attleboro deal with my taxes. Not cheap but always good.
