Hello Tax return!!!

My new toys thank you uncle Sam!!!

My New Monitor

(Gotta get used to another resolution again -- I just got used to 1024 x 768 on a 19" and now same dimensions and it's running best at 1280 x 1024 O_o)

And I have a gorgeous solid Oak Corner Desk coming on Thursday (Got the desk and matching lateral file cabinet) that will be delivered Thursday...

I'll take pictures of my new desk when I get it set up.

The new desk is named "Bones".. why?
Because the model is called the Star Trek Model

I did a double take when the dude doing the sales slip said "Star Trek" desk so I went back over to the model on the showroom floor and sure enough it said "Star Trek" on it.


It's niiiiice and BIG and fucking heavy and there was no way in hell that was getting here in any car. It will have to be delivered in a BIG TRUCK with BIG MEN to move it into my office.

I cannot wait to finally have a proper DESK.

I mean I have a nice solid desk NOW, but it's more of a computer station that I have a little writing tables shoved up against for desktop space. I'm constantly BURIED in my papers and overflow. I need more than one drawer and no survace area to work on because the computer itself takes up all the space.

Unnnnnnnn I have been planning this desk purchase all year (Next years tax return I buy a new bed with a tempurpedic mattress, yes I have tax returns PLANNED MAN.)

2002 I got my last new monitor and my tablet (Dad inherited that 19" flat panel but while FLAT it was HUGE it was a full standard Monitor and it weighed like 50 pounds, it was still perfect just massive so I gave it to dad.)
2003 I got my Laptop
2004 I got the above
2005's will be the BED
2006's will upgrade my current computer system.
2007's No clue yet. Not thought that far ahead yet.




This does not look it, and the picture they have up is crappy it's black mesh... it's see through. but it is soooooooooooooo comfortable.... I got this too yesterday (mom got one too for herself)

I don't get returns....the government takes all my returns, even if I filed....therefore, I don't get nifty things like that. Eventually, though, I'll get a tablet....and a desk..... ;;tries to avoid drooling over your new monitor;;

I have them take EXTRA out of every check $20.00 over that way I am guarenteed a NICE bulky check back. I don't miss it when it was never there week to week I called it a forced savings.


and due you HAVE to file, do not get busted not filing.

I have a bad habit of forgetting, most of the time. And then there's the whole mess of me being just plain confused when it comes to the filing... If I lived closer to my parents than 3 hours drive (I know that doesn't sound like much, but it truly is), I think I'd have my Momma do my taxes for me. Math is not above me, Tax Season just confuses the heck outta me.

That's what H & R Block is for, I certainly don't do them myself. I pay $50 and have them go over all the numbers.

Been using H&R block for 15 years now.

;;smiles;; I'd certainly offer to pay my Momma, if she were willing to maybe even teach me how to do my own taxes. But $50 is a lot to shell out when one is fairly certain they aren't gonna be getting their returns. That's money I could use to fix my damnable suspended license stuff. ;;has had a lot of stuff kinda snowball down on her head;;

Then invest $20 in turbo tax program and do it yourself.

Really do NOT just skip filing, that's jail time babe, or worse.

>_> Hmm. That's not a bad idea. We sell that at Office Max, and I get an employee discount....

is there still time to file? or am I SOL this year?
Feb. 21st, 2005 04:53 am (UTC)
YOu have until 4-15 ever year
Feb. 21st, 2005 04:58 am (UTC)
ooooh....for some reason I kept thinking that it had to be done by the end of January... It's a yearly misconception I have, unfortunately.

Most amusing part is, I've made just enough that I kinda maybe have to file....even though I only worked at two jobs last year...;;checks W-2s;; ;;gets wide-eyed;; I have no clue how to read these things....

Your employers have until January 31st to get you your W2's that's THEIR deadline.

Your Filing deadline is always April 15th.

Any time you get a W2 it's not optional, you have to file babe.

W2's are simple that's what you made in the past year, all the hours you worked, your hourly wages and the amount of taxes paid into the system.

When you make so very little, don't be surprised to get it back. There are minimum yearly wage caps, if you make under a certain amount they pretty much give you all your tax money back.

I saw that when I was working part-time when I was young. I made under poverty level they gave me almost all my momey I paid in back.

NOW that I make more, I pay a lot in taxes.

And technically the only time you have to officially file is if you owe money. They'll hunt you done like wild dogs for that, but if you break even (get nothing back) or get money back, they won't go after you. They just don't care if you go without money that they can keep. So, although you are supposed to file, you can get around it without penalty for certain reasons.

The interest on that money owed though! WOW! It should be illegal to charge that much for anything due after April 15th!

You can do taxes on H&R Blocks website for free I think Mom said. I can't find it for the life of me, but it's supposed to be there somewhere. It may be under the H&R Block Advantage. You get a pin number there, so I didn't go digging. Either way, they have tips and stuff on their page along with a tax calendar and such. And IRAs are cheaper elsewhere if you know anyone considering that there. (My Mom works for H&R Block in the peak season, so mine are done there by her for free on the friends and family list.)

Okay, I've done my H&R Block bit, so I'll stumble off now.

I'm getting my new bathroom sink and faucet, and a new kitchen faucet installed on Tuesday... I'm thinking about getting some new carpeting in the living room and up my stairs...

I may invest in a new laptop if I have anything left over... stay tuned!

Okay, I swear, I'll shut up after this!

My lovely return is going to be part of my car insurance money. Anything I have extra will go to desk accessories. I swear, my room will be organized! (Yes, a Capricorn that is disorganized! It does happen. ^_^)

I wish I had room for a desk like that! My room is so small and has so much packed into it that if I try to get one more VHS tape case holder in there, the room should explode! We went from our old house where I had a room that was like 14xsomething, to this little blip of a room in 1997. I still can't get everything how I want it! (Yes, I'm also very slow. It'll be okay, I think. Maybe??) Mom teases me the ceiling will fall into the living room if I bring one more thing into my room. I've hauled about 6 medium sized boxes of stuff out of there for Salvation Army, and several trash bags of junk, and I can't even make a dent in the stuff. *_*

I must find a way to get a corner desk in there!!! I've only wanted one since before we moved from the old house! Wonder how much more stuff I'll have to haul out? Oh well, must type some complaints up and then I can start thinking about cleaning more tonight. Have to have it spotless for Next week. (One of Mom's old family friends may stay with us while his wife has surgeory and it can be any time after March 2nd.)
