    Oh boy my numbers are a wreck! One of my divisions had too much profit, the other took an unexpected loss- and the number at the top of the Turbine Tax (no free ad here boyo) is too HIGH!!!!
    When I get home from work I gotta play with the numbers again to

    Divisions? My divisions are me and my wife. But, yeah, I did the 11th hour thing, and the number was unfortunate.

    Yep...it's kind of like doing a term paper the night before it's due. Started working on mine in early March. Just sent the check yesterday.

    Done and electronically filed! Paid them about 3% more than last year, which counting for inflation, means I lied at exactly the same level! ")
  8. Took me all of an hour to do mine and my wife's. Not due until the end of the month here in Canada.

    I extend every year. Heck I am barely thru the 2012 taxes.
  10. ^ yup same here! And sadly I majored in accounting so I really have no excuse :bag:
  11. I LOVE the fact I can make a nice living playing bass and doing what I love. But holy cow, doing taxes on a 1099 with nothing withholding bites a big one. Shoeboxes of receipts, counting all the miles (38,000+ this year), and still having to pay out a metric crap load is a headache. I got mine done yesterday, but my new accountant (great guy) noticed some stuff from my return last year that he could amend (yay!). So we filed an extension so we could get everything done in a non-frantic, relaxed fashion. Having taxes due 3 days after my birthday is a boon, too.
    My dumb rambling is over. As you were.

    I believe the term is "massaging the numbers"

    Indeed. I always wait since I always owe and there's no point in hurrying.

    Did it in about 4 hours. Between NYS, PA, and the Fed I owed $17800. Ta-da!

    Did mine yesterday afternoon. It's getting pretty dang hard to find a 1040 form made out of actual paper, they used to send them in the mail. What happened there?

    Thankfully, not! It was over on the April 10th. :D
  17. Did mine on Friday, which was very late for me. I generally have it done in Feb or so. Wife was always "having me do things".

    That's gotta be stressful. We do them end of January, February the latest.

    In NY they mandate by law E-file. I think you get charged to mail paper forms. Toolbags.
