Nothing like waiting until the last minute to pay taxes, eh?
I used H&R Block online (which I paid for, FCC) to figure our taxes. I completed the process back in February. The federal government owed us $140, and we owed Pennsylvania $152.
I got the federal refund back fairly quickly, and I earmarked the funds to apply to what we owed the state. I didn’t get around to printing documents and writing a check until yesterday, though.
And, I’ll be taking a trip to the post office today to make sure it gets postmarked before tomorrow.
In this area, we have to figure and file our local taxes ourselves. It’s a huge pain. We lived in our current municipality for only half of 2009, so I had to go through a few extra steps to complete the process.
I grumble about figuring my taxes, but I am grateful for traffic lights that work, police officers who respond promptly, roads in reasonable repair, and lots more.
Did you wait until the last minute to file? Or did you take care of it way back?
