What's so funny about that? I did a conversion on one of those cars. Put the FWD bluebird sr20 turbo'd motor into it. The car was amazing and such a sleeper.

Gah, there's no estimating what I get for tax this year. Since late July my income has been tax exempt, plus I'll be filing for the "lean-burn" tax credit (TDi), claiming mortgage interest and student loan interest. Should be interesting. Oh, and my re-up bonus was tax exempt too. I got lucky on the timing of that one.

Plus, the first half of this year my income is be tax exempt again.

I prefer overpaying. It's like a free saving account, just no interest. Keeps me from spending that little extra on stupid **** all year, and allows me to get a decent chunk back to do with as I please. Almost like free money, since the amounts they were taking all year were almost too little to notice.

Exactly my feelings, you just said it better. I can barely keep 2k in my account, and 40 bucks in my wallet.

So far the company that laid me off 18 months ago has hired 2 guys to replace me. The first one a rookie to do all the **** jobs I did, like cleaning the toilets and taking out the trash. The second one to do my actual job. Avionics Tech. Guy number 2 is overwhelmed so now they are adding a 3rd to help number 2.

We try to do that, but there's too many variables to where those calculators can only get so close. One year we ended up owing when we followed them.

I've already filed our taxes for this year, but the Gov't is slow and shitty and we have to wait until Feb 15th to get our money.

Want an idea? Take your first paycheck, then change what you claim, get your next paycheck , look at the difference, stash that difference aside with every paycheck into a savings account. Guess what happens in a year? You get more money. Not to mention the dicipline of putting money aside and not spending it, but having access to it in case of some emergency. It teaches good financial responsibility....which I've gotten from my GF because my parents had NONE and didn't teach me ****.

That's why I said for people with simple returns (mostly younger people and renters who aren't self employed/contractors), it can be pretty easy to ****** it up when you start adding deductions, exemptions and itemizing.



I'm getting a whopping $600 back, just did my **** last night. I really wasn't even expecting that much. If anything, I'm disappointed that I didn't claim enough on my W-4. Oh how things will change next year when I get to add in tuition....
