If you're an American, remember to get your taxes done - tomorrow is the deadline!

I just finished mine, and I have this terrible suspicion that I've been doing them wrong for the last three or four years, because all of a sudden my estimated refund is bigger. A LOT bigger. Like, $2000 bigger. I don't think I've been declaring my tuition expenses right. Bah. The tax system is hideously complex, even for fairly simple cases like me.

Forget the Ides of March. The Ides of April are what really concern me as I am not a Roman Emperor.

Mm, I was supposed to get my taxes done a month ago. Rolling Eyes I'm just too darn lazy. Last year they sent me a letter saying "give us money now or you die!" a while past the deadline, and I did it then. ^^;;

I don't have any. . .*is too young*
But my family got them done a while ago I think - though there was a bit of a problem with my India-located brother's.

anyone got their refund/economy-stimulating return yet?

>> My family pokes an accountant to do them. All I had to do was sign. My goal in life is to mind-meld with an accountant. Simplicity for one and all.

I hated taxes also. I seriously hated them. I'm getting some decent money back though. We'll see how it goes.

My parents were happy because it turns out we owed over a thousand dollars less than we thought...

...all of which is now helping my sister and I go to New York tomorrow. My parents are good to us.

No taxes for meeeee! I didn't have any income. Next year, however...*quails*

I have an advantage, though-my dad's a tax lawyer, so he's pro at doing it correctly-and he and Mom are the most meticulous record keepers I've ever seen. Three filing cabinets, all in a row, all six feet high. A couple of days ago my dad told me I should start thinking about getting one. He's probably right, but...filing cabinets are scary.

"I see you've moved up in the world, Spot!" Hee hee.

My dad's a tax preparer for a tax-doing company, so he does ours too. I've actually had taxes since 10th grade, I think, since I was 16 certainly. It's just that my dad always did it. ^_^

*sighs dreamily* New York...such a beautiful town. Even more so now that you don't have to worry about getting mugged...

Yep, personal filing cabinet = leaving Neverland for me. I DUN WANNA DO IT. YOU CAN'T MAKE ME.

I just want to know why taxes are so complex. Wouldn't it save everyone a ton of hassle if it was one flat rate or anything? Any tax law students here to explain why it's so weird?
