    &%#!@ extorted even more of my money.

    Much better than a friend of mine who retired last year and exercised some stock options - $30,000 more please.

    I wrote a $3500 check to them yesterday. $3300 last year. I see a trend! ;)

    Keep paying those taxes. The more you pay the more patriotic you are. At least that is what I heard.

    I find the more taxes I pay, the less patriotic I become! ;)

    Not really. I've learned to pick at people like a nasty scab and just make things worse. Makes for great entertainment.

    You know, just like you do!

    I sent off $3700. Didn't bother me at all. Better paying them than get a refund of money I let them borrow all year at 0% interest.

    sailfish Having way too much fun.

    I see a trend on here of lots of people owing taxes. Is this something common among other drivers? I've gotten refunds every year so far so I'm curious as to if other people are doing something different or if I have this joy to look forward to when I make full-time/top-rate for some reason.

    Don't disagree as one of the reason I'm paying as well. But I do disagree with the economic central planning that re-distributes the wealth away from the local community and into hands far away and way up the chain that will never be used to actually help real people.

    But by all means, please continue the delusions being doled out for public feel good consumption.

    I never liked owing but it doesn't make sense to get a huge refund either so I try to come close to breaking even at tax time. I got $200 back this year so I was pretty close. I owed a couple of hundred last year.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Owed a little over 3 grand this year. The wife started working and pushed is out of basically every tax write off there is.

    Couldn't even claim 15k in student loan intrest.

    I got back $77 state and federal.
     
  19. $3500 back from the federal. That's the last year I will get a big return.

    $54 back from the state. I donate that money. Half for breast cancer and half to the veterans. They give you that option when you e file.

    $23 back from the local tax.,that's beer money.
