I had to pay. I've only gotten a refund once in the last 15 years. I suppose that's a good thing.

We were stunned. Got about 1000 back, Fed & State. That never happened before. But then, we've never been 65 before, either.:D

We also were stunned that for the first time got a refund from the state of Mo---a big $133 but beat the couple thousand we usually had to pay. At least we won't have to file that one again.

Also were shocked to get a refund from the feds, first time in quite a while. We had to pay quite a bit last year and a huge (to us) 2 years ago.

I had to pay on my retirement income & investments but what really ticks me off is having to include Social security cause I have already paid the IRS tax on those earnings. Being single is a bitch at tax time.

We paid an extra $3k federal, but got back $1k from the state. For us, that's pretty much breaking even.

Sure is, and I had to pay too.

On knowing how to "work the system" - what pisses me off is the people
who do that sort of thing pushing the burden off on the rest of us. For
example, I work with two people who are masters at using the system.
She had 2 kids then divorced. So she gets a bundle in child support.
The she got pregnant by this guy (nookie on the job). They decide not
to get married for tax reasons but do live together. He makes well over
$100K, she makes close to that, they drain her ex-husband for child
support, and then they file separately so she can get all the child tax
credits for being a single mom with 3 kids. They just bought a really
nice $200K plus home. :mad: They are married for all appearances and
purpose, except when it comes to taxes.

Oh yeah. I know your gonna be loving next years as well, since your deployment spanned both years. :D

I got January tax free this year, but that won't be enough to change my bracket again.

Yeah and if I deploy again next summer it will split the tax years for another two seasons as well.

I may have this new truck paid off in record time :D

I'll be PCS'ing right at the time my next deployment bucket comes about, so I'm most likely safe from the next one. I tell you though, that money was nice...

Yes I am compared to what we have now.
I'm most in favor of a consumption tax plan.
