Hi Mylotters Tis the season again...for tax returns my husband does our taxes he has always done our taxes usually he waits till the last minute to them but he gets them done. It takes him a while he sometimes spreads it over a few days because he likes to go over them a couple of times before he sends them off to make sure he didn't miss anything he wants to make sure we get every last deduction entitled to us,and I can't say I blame him! Uncle Sam gets enough of our money as it is in my opinion you should be able to get the exact amount of money that you work for but we all know thats never going to be the case. But still it would be nice

I guess I will be cranking out the taxes this year. I use TurboTax so it is not very difficult. If you answer all of the questions it will give you all of the deductions you are entitled to. There is also a free version of TurboTax Federal, so you may want to encourage your hubby to try it and see if he gets the same thing that TurboTax comes up with. Maybe they will find a deduction that he missed and get you a few more dollars back. Best of luck to him on getting all ya'll are entitled to.

I usually prepare our taxes. I'm using TaxAct this year and have used TurboTax in previous years so it's a pretty easy process. I've already entered all of the W-2 information I have so far and waiting on one more to finalize things. Usually we get at least a little money back each but it looks like we may have to pay this year, even with all the possible deductions. There is a new "Making Work Pay" provision this year. I have to say I have been a little worried about the low amount for withholding thru the year but since hubby & I both work our total withholdings are out of whack since this provision gave us a little extra on each paycheck because they lowered the withholding table. Have to say I'm a little peeved at the moment. According to the IRS.Gov page I found when researching it says this will affect: Pensioners Married couples with two incomes Individuals with multiple jobs Dependents Some Social Security recipients who work Workers without valid Social Security numbers Sure hope this last form I'm waiting on changes the numbers.
