We did our taxes last night and if you remember I was worried because I had put our numbers into TurboTax and it showed me owing $29 for federal. Well, I'm happy to report that it was wrong! We're getting back $1444 for federal and $132 for state. I'm so happy and relieved that we aren't going to have to pay in. That money can go straight to our house fund.
Also, it is nice knowing that the taxes are done. We just need to sign one more item and our accountant will fax it to us for a signature. We paid $200 for our accountant to do our taxes. After doing a dry run through TurboTax, I would say that the $200 was well spent. I would recommend that everybody use an accountant. They have so much more knowledge of our tax system that they usually more than pay for themselves.
Have you done your taxes yet? Were you surprised by the outcome?
