    I don't mind doing my taxes, but what I really hate is that the IRS doesn't have an official site to electronically file tax returns. Granted I qualify for the free returns through private preparers, I'm always leery of giving some schlup my personal information. I'd feel better if it was a bona fide IRS site or something.

    Oh well.

    My tax return has already arrived (last week) and is already gone!

    My tax return is simple, one W2 form. I put a bit of money in our savings account and the last time the savings was looked at was 2004. We made $0.05 interest in our savings account in 4 years! Yahoo!

    I actually liked doing my taxes this year since I decided to buy a new camera with it and not something reasonable like put it in retirement account. :)

    Awesome, I'm married, single income, with 2 kids and I don't get half that much back.

    You can be excited about that, but do realize that isn't free money or anything. It's your money, you just have much more taken out of your check to give the government an interest free 1 year loan :D

    I prefer to have my money in my paycheck rather than waiting until spring of each year to get it. Though, if we weren't attempting to live on a single income, I wouldn't need it to pay monthly bills, so I would probably have it taken out and returned in the spring. It does seem like free money when you get it all in a large chunk like that.

    You're welcome, Beth! I learned nagging from the best of 'em.

    That reminds me: I'd better call my folks today.
