Re: Franchise Tax Blah

Precisely the reason I'm a procrastinator - Especially when it comes to doing my taxes!

"Thank you State"...for what??

Taking your money and and then giving back a small percentage? And you think they are doing you some kinda favor by refunding a tiny portion of what they stole in a few days after you have to beg them in writing? Man, they got you snowed.

I kick myself for submitting to that lunacy for as long as I did.

CA FTB Told me it would take two weeks for me to get mine.

Theoretically I should be getting my Fed refund this coming Wednesday.

Well, it's better to be slightly over than slightly under, I've found.

Submitted on the 14th and still haven't gotten mine; meanwhile, my refunds from the Feds is also on Wednesday. Last year, they stated that they never received my W2 information from my employer, looks like it happened again.

Well I got my paycheck auto-deposited; still nothing from Fed. I hope it shows up sometime today. My guess is it's not gonna even show up until Midnight tonight so it posts tomorrow.

Never did the direct-deposit from tax refund before. Last year I had to opt for the Turbotax debit visa because my bank changed it's routing # for direct deposits and I didn't want to risk it going into the ether.

That was a major hassle all on it's own; having to go to a specific ATM and make the maximum withdrawls, daily, for like 4 days in a row just to clean out the card and put the money where I wanted it.

I just did the online check for both fed and state. Got the same crap answer for both.

Has either one of you ever considered changing the number of dependents on your W4?

For FY 2011 I filed head-of-household with 2 deductions. Myself and my Daughter.

This year I'll be filing Single-1 since my daughter moved in with her mom for High School. That's gonna make a big difference next tax season...

I have. I claim two for the whole year. Besides that, I deduct for my house, union dues and car registration. Since I got all my forms, I'm only getting 390 Feds and 241 State. That's my spending money for my vacation I'm taking this year.

No IOU's so far, but I did see an article stating the state is low on cash so another possible round of IOU's. Get your taxes in ASAP for that refund.

EDIT: Here's the article.
