So I had all my W-2s, 1099s, stock trades and dates, etc. ready to do my taxes. I sit down at the computer and… where did my tax software go? I know I took it out of the boxes, cut out the UPCs, and sent off the rebates. I already threw away the boxes, so there should be a little stack of CDs in my office… hours later… nada. Nowhere to be found. I’m seriously losing it.
I gave up and used the free filing (TurboTax) available online, but stopped short of filing. It looks like we’ll be getting about $1,000 back, which is good. Of course we didn’t qualify for anything but the standard deduction with no mortgage interest. But the state e-file option costs $24.95, and I already paid for tax software, dagnabbit! Five bucks to the person who tells me where to find it!
