We readjusted last year as my better 1/2 went from a good paying full time to a few part time gigs. So we wanted to make sure we came out on top. Next year will be closer to zero!Cue the "government loan" posts in 3....2.....
$1911 is abnormally high for a MA refund however, did you pay too much on your ES taxes?
Paying tax on unemployment is like getting raped with a dildo bound with barb wire.....make zero sense....but it is .gov we are talking about!I just finished my taxes 2 minutes ago. Thanks to corona and the State, I am getting less than I should have. If I ask for taxes to come out of unemployment you'd think they would take out enough to pay the f***ing taxes.
I love asparagus and it makes my pee stink.
Did the same a few years ago, mine were getting to be around 350 and were getting easier every year. Used to always do my own, then for a few years with a business and rental decided to hire out.I did mine using online software. First year in a long time I didn't have all kinds of complicated stuff. Cost me $60.
The accountant bill kept creeping up every year. used to cost $125-150, it was pushing past $400 last year.
That's a little steep for one 1040 with a schedule C. I don't even have itemized deductions anymore.
When I had two businesses and a rental property they were charging me about 250. More deductions, more forms.
Seems like their country club membership fees went up so they had to pass that cost on.
Having a $75K Escalade parked out front isn't good optics either.
I'm all for supporting small business, and I'd rather have a local guy do it, but.. come on that's wallet rape right there.
Yup, going to talk to our tax guy....Take your refund divide how many paydays and that’s how much extra you could have in your paycheck each month. If you have a CPA do your taxes they should be able to tell you what adjustments to make to your with holdings.
If your company has competent payroll/HR folks they should be able to help you too.
Just did my taxes and my Commichusetts return is 1911! Be nice if I could get a 1911 with it!
That would be enough of a sign from JMB and God to treat myself to a nice hunk of series 70 carbon steel. Oh, and an iced coffee from Mary Lous.
Turbo tax royally screwed up a few years ago, I didn't catch it and ended up owing 2k more than planned. Employer next year screwed up withholding and managed to repeat the oppsie.
