Just Did My Taxes!

I just hit the final E-file button in TurboTax at 09:49 UTC on April 15th.  Not cutting it close at all this year, am I?

Doing all the stuff took me just about 3 hours this time.  Wish it was less, but I guess it could be worse.

It looks like for once the withholding ended up being almost exactly right.  Refund, but a pretty small one.  Enough of a refund to pay for the TurboTax fee, but not all that much more than that.  Maybe enough to take the family out to dinner a few extra times.  I guess that is just fine.  A big refund is always nice (aside from the giving the government an interest free loan and all) but having even a very small refund is a much much better experience than finding out after you do all the TurboTax stuff that you are going to have to write a big fat check.  I’ve had that happen a couple of years, and it was very unpleasant.

Not this year!  Yea!

Now to bed.  I have to be up and getting ready for the work day in just about 4 hours.  Bleh!
