Default What is your income level?

Seeing that tax season is in its peak, I thought I'd start a thread on the relative income levels of miatatubro. Also; Feel free to add whether you got a tax return, or a bill , and for how much.


I got $769 back...... And the 99's going to the body shop to say goodbye to the rocker rust.

I got $1200 back from the feds, and I owed $36 to the state. I then spent way more than the $1200 on my Miata, and it's no faster than it was last fall. Weird.

If I get a lot of money (which I probably won't)...

Vbands/EWG setup imminent.

If you have a wife (ewww) and she has a turbo miata, but is not a member of the site at the time of voting, then your income must be posted separate.

I sent over $4k to the feds. That's above the nearly $700 I sent in in estimated tax, and plus the money I usually get back. My company was bought out, and I did well on the stock purchase plan.

So, I get a once in a lifetime windfall, and the gov't screws me out of a quarter of it.

I got 1200 back - it went straight into my somewhat depleted emergency fund after having an unemployed drought.

Sent them $6976.

First year to not get money back, and have to pay money in.

My wife and I got right around $1000 back, only because of the baby we had this year.

And I don't make nearly as much money as I should...

Sent a $11,700 check to the feds, $3,300 to the state of CA. (And yes, I was a good boy and paid my estimated taxes last year. This was on top of $37k of EST payments.)

Hope all you fuсkers enjoy your free healthcare.

Since we are comparing size, can I just attach a pic of my junk? Will I win then?

Ah, nothing like a little class warfare.

I'm trying to figure out who the three people in the >$150 range are. I've got a pretty good guess on two of them.
