Seeing that April 15th is a mere 13 days away, I thought I'd see how we all made out this year on flushing our hard earned cash down the Government toilet!
I didn't file in 2007 (I submitted an extension by April 15th, but when October 15th rolled around I was in Iraq and forgot :eek:), so this year I had to file 4 W-2s, for 2 years with both the Marine Corps and my part time job.
I paid $239 in Federal for 2007, got a $6 refund from state. :p
I got $806 in Federal for 2008 and a $16 refund from state.
All in all, I made out ok. I paid over $6,000 in Federal taxes alone for 2007 & 2008 and received $806 back, so I guess I'm paying my "fair share".
How'd you make out?
