****. I had to fork over $3,300 when I filed, and that's in addition to the $2,400 worth of quarterly estimated tax payments I made.

I just sat down and added it all up. This is depressing.. Between the IRS and the CA FTB, I paid $26,700 in tax for FY07. Or put another way, I'd have been better off skipping my taxes, buying a brand new 2009 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder, defecating into it, and then driving it from the dealer's lot directly off the closest pier.

No soup for either of us...

Next!

LOL, That's only about 1/4 your income, CA wants more if they can get it.

I'm just happy they eliminated the ***-raping for short term capital gains. That alone made a big difference.

Homeowners around here have it much worse, though. In addition to typically $100-$200 a month in HOA fees, figure about 1.2% annually in property tax. Doesn't sound like much until you consider that $800,000 is a pretty average 3/2 house in Carlsbad. $800/mo property tax is more than my mortgage payment used to be when I owned a house in Ohio.

I'm getting $300. $100 will be added to my refund from clutchnet to get a nice ACT setup. The other $200 will be going to school or savings, not sure which yet.

you wouldn't have gotten $1100 unless you are married... if you are married you can't legally be claimed as an dependent.

It just seems like a band-aid solution to fix problems that are much more complicated. A short term solution to allow the profiteering that created this problem to continue.

the 600 by itself isn't going to fix the economy. it's the other stuff that may help. but the problem is... it'll just continue the cycle that recurs each time the interest rates drop down to nothing and people go into stupid debt.
