I just got done figuring my tax bill for this year and cut the check. Now, we have heard from the refunders about blowing their money on firearms, hookers and blow, but I want to know just how many firearms did this tax season cost you.

I sold two just to pay half of my bill, but when you figure opportunity cost this year was closer to four.

I'm filing an extension.

$1541 goes in the mail Monday at the PO. I figure it sets me behind 6 months on that 50 BMG rifle I want.

Wow, so the 900 something that I paid doesn't feel so bad. Except its more work at my off-duty job.

Ha ole Sam owes me $444.41. Something tells me that a couple of cases of ammo will be headed my way.

Yeah, I don't have the FS2000 on pre-order yet either.

Right here.

They take a freakin' pile out of our checks as is.

I know I should have a better attitude about paying tribute for living in the greatest nation in the world (no, not Sweden, the other one) but man, when I think about the things I could be doing with that money...

I'm paying more this year than LAST year, and I upped my withholdings.
Link Posted: 4/13/2006 6:24:12 PM EST
A little over $4,200, not sending it until monday.
Link Posted: 4/13/2006 6:25:06 PM EST
$12,473.00

I know it hurts more your way, but most of us idiots give Uncle a large interest free loan every year.

I am expecting to get back about 3 AR15's.

Mandatory withholding is the DEVIL

You may not feel like it right now, but you are indeed the smart one.



Does anybody know if it is legal and correct to have HR add a dependent or two so that your withheld roughly equals your taxes owed?

I have *heard* that you can claim as many as you want. They only use it to indicate how much to take out of each check. Claiming more, however, means they will take out less, IIRC. Anyway, this is what someone told me. Don't know if it's true, or true in your case.
Link Posted: 4/13/2006 6:36:21 PM EST
Yeah, for $13...looks like I calculated my withholdings perfectly this year.
Link Posted: 4/13/2006 6:37:22 PM EST
I'm cutting a check and mailing it tomorrow. Everyone in the country should have to pay taxes this way, not have it taken out of their check. More people would be pissed off how the government spends our money.

You can tell them to take out whatever amount you want, but you are still liable for the taxes. I feel the same way about that interest free loan you talked about. Last year I had to pay over 700 state and federal so I changed my witholding. This year the Feds owe me 89 and IL owes me 14, I think I got it just about perfect.

Just sent in $2600 to them.
Link Posted: 4/13/2006 6:47:03 PM EST
$2300.00
Link Posted: 4/13/2006 6:49:05 PM EST
I owe $102

I made $1600 too much to get out of paying this year.
