    Amen to that. I do not use the US government as a savings plan.

    It could open up a lot of jobs opportunities within the White House.

    I am looking forward to the extra $500 deduction for homeowners who take the standard deduction (schedule L) and the *double credit because my son goes to college in a Midwest flood affected county.

    *AGI below $48,000 - max $4,000 using the Lifetime Learning credit (IRS Pub. 970)

    Should end up paying only $600 in Federal income tax this year!

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    I am surprised that, as a homeowner, you don't have enough deductions to itemize. Itemizing may net you a lower tax bill, even without the extra $500 deduction. Also, don't forget about the $400 American at Work credit.

    I'll fess up, I use the treasury as my own personal bank account. If I didn't, we'd spend every last penny.:knockedout:
  13. I'm not paying taxes anymore. I'm going to rack up a couple of million in owed taxes and then get on TV with a big smile on my face and tell everyone how I got it settled for $40,000.
    Wesley Snipes should have done that.

    My hope is that we owe $499.99 We will withdraw that money from savings and send the feds a check on April 15th. That means that we kept $499 of their money all year and earned interest on it, instead of the other way around.

    yessir, this is the only way to fly. I encourage everyone to adopt this line of thinking immediatly.

    you could get more in your paycheck every week, also alowing you to invest that money.

    You still have to pay an estimated amount owed, or fees and interest start racking up.
