Question of the Week....

Thursday, April 15, 2010....



I've decided to make Thursdays my "Question of the Week" day because I always have questions and am always interested in people's answers.


This Week's Question: Are you a person who files their taxes early or is racing around the last minute?

Yeah, yeah, I couldn't let tax day fly by without asking this question.

To answer the question, I was a tad late sending them in this year even though they were done early March AND I am getting a refund. It was just one of those things that happened.

They are in now which makes me happy. However, I typically file by mid-March most years.

It all depends. Really.

We usually have all the information to the accountants by late January, but rare is the year the accountant doesn't file an extension to complete the complexity that is our IRS filing.

So I guess you could call us organized but with a slow filing.

Um, I did mine two hours ago.

The only great thing about still living with my parents is that my mom took care of it all. We did it early. We've known my accountant for years too so its easy for us! I know tho it will be a hassle when I'm older.

Is this an american thing? My taxes just get taken off my wage, I don't usually do anything else. Now I'm worried I'm doing it wrong...

I did mine a few weeks ago but have a tendancy to wait or I just file extensions.

I always file as soon as I can. Usually we are getting a refund but also I don't like to have it hanging over my head.

When we paid someone else, we had them done right away. Now that we do our own they went in today.

Typically I am done sometime in mid-late March - so not first thing nor waiting till last minute.

This year - I e-filed on Sunday night so this is the record for latest filing ever. And I usually get a refund so not sure why in general I don't file sooner.

Happy Tax Day!

We have to have our taxes prepared for us, and we usually owe! For that reason, I wait to pay until the 15th... Makes me so angry to pay and pay and pay!

If I am getting a refund it happens electronically so it depends how early I can get an appointment with the tax person. If God forbid I have to pay I wait till today.

Although there has been a year or two where I did them last minute, I always get them done very early, so they're done and off my mind.

Jane said...

I have to do mine in January, or else they won't get done on time.

Luna said...

i do it early. i usually prefer to do it in march or early april. this year i did it in march. sometimes its best to get it out of the way as soon as you get your forms. it makes no sense to do something as important as taxes at the last min.

Fed very early... state usually the week they are due...

I have been reaping the rewards of my return since February.

Unknown Mami said...

I wait, but not until the very last minute. I get them done the first week of April.

Sunshine Mama said...

We've done it both ways. Barely on time or way early. This year it was March.
