Did my taxes last night...that was through disappointment. Anybody get enough of a refund to actually buy something of value?

    I had a child this year, so my taxes refund was the biggest refund I every had. Bought the new Benelli M2. Pretty sweet shotgun.

    My wife and I pay our taxes near April Fools Day. We both work, so like sheep our wool will be sheared. Yes, everybody don't forget to pay your taxes. The Democratic Government loves to take money from the Productive working Americans and give to the non Productive Americans with all their freebee programs.

    It's nice to get any refund, rather than owe the government money. It is a forced saving.
    Still, the penalty for underpayment is not very severe, about 2% if you pay on or before April 15th.

    I am self employed. Tax season is a sad time for a lobsterman, sometimes to the tune of nearly 20,000 dollars. Can't buy a new boat every year I guess...

    OH- did you mean to say anymore? You don't sell drugs or launder money any more?

    Sorry, that should read W-4 not W-2.

    It is nice to owe at tax time indicating that the government did not take money out of your pay check for them to use interest free all year.

    I didn't pay any taxes last year and doubt I'll be paying any this year. My financial situation is very unusual (to say the least) and though I am extremely well off, my income is below the poverty line. And no, I don't sell drugs or launder money.

    Bioguy, don't lament the meager refund. Just means the government didn't use your money interest free all year. Makes more sense to claim as few exemptions as possible on W-2 and have the bank automatically take out and hold your tax money every payday rather than the government. Pay the govts what you owe them at the end of the year and pocket the interest.

    Due to last year's birthday, my tax "liability" changed.
    Refund was nice, just didn't last long enough. At this point, income taxes are February "mad" money. Kind of an impromptu savings account.

    While it seems nice to get a tax refund, the reality is you're giving extra money to the government to use interest free until they give you your refund. A zero refund or even owing a little is best . I try to figure out withholding to keep the most in my pocket and the least in Uncle Sam's.
