Thread: How big is your IRS tax refund?

musicmann - 3/27/2010 at 10:03 PM

Mine is a whopping $245.

Our disfunctional governor, Patterson, in NY, decided to hold our state tax refunds for a few months because NY needs the $. I dont recall giving him permission to use my $. The guy is nuts....


DanB - 3/27/2010 at 10:05 PM

WTF is a refund?

NC is doing the same thing. I always try to make sure I am slightly underwithheld so that I can hold my money as long as possible.


DancingDave - 3/27/2010 at 10:23 PM

i went to H&R Block today...gotta go back in a week since my wife and I always have a complicated return ...funny thing last year we got audited ok no problem we paid the extra with HRBlock for what they call peace of mind..anyway when we got the letter form the IRS we went to our tax guy gave him all the stuff they redid everything we sent it back to the IRS instead of the IRS trying to screw us saying we owed them it turned out we got another check from uncle same..

Dumb asses..

My question is, "How can this be legal?" By calling Patterson dysfunctional, you're being much too kind.


yankweed1 - 3/27/2010 at 11:45 PM

refund, is all gone. got me to nyc to see the brothers and a few bagels!!!Never spend and tell!!

Don't know about how it works in other states but the same thing has happened in Alabama this year and last year. Alabama says they are sending out refunds as tax collections come in but blame slow collections on the economy. I think, by law, you have to have paid at least 75 or 80% of what you owe by April 15 to avoid filing quarterly so it would seem that even in the worst case where most folks have to pay on April 15, the state should already have at least half of the taxes already in their coffers. Alabama has to pay you interest on your refund if you don't receive it by July 15 but, other than that, you just have to wait. I suppose the lesson to be learned here is that you should adjust your withholding so that you get almost no refund at the end of the year and pay less tax throughout the year. Really, if you get a refund you're giving the state an interest-free loan for at least four 1/2 months and maybe even longer. If the state never gets an overpayment from you then you don't have to worry about getting it back in a timely manner.

the fact that you're getting a refund implies that you gave him permission to use your money all year!


My thread says IRS refund, not state.

My question EGG ZAKK LEE. More like, how big of a check did you write to the Fed and State IRS.


dougrhon - 3/28/2010 at 03:58 AM

Not nearly big enough. We pay quarterlies and always apply any refund to the first quarter payment so it doesn't matter to us when refunds are sent out.


bluesguy - 3/28/2010 at 11:59 AM

no refund here.


Jacquie - 3/28/2010 at 12:18 PM

I'm not complaining this year...I sold a house where the taxes were $12,000.00 a year. I bought a new house so I was able to get the $6,500.00 tax credit. Those credits offset the taxes I had to pay on alimony...in the end I did ok, it's my largest refund ever....and I'm sure it'll never be this much again.

PS - I live in NJ and God knows what shake-ups will be in store or us down the road.


rottinpeach - 3/28/2010 at 02:09 PM

I gotta file an extension................


Peachfan8 - 3/28/2010 at 04:29 PM

My IRS tax refund is a -$1100. Those bastards always get my money. On the bright side, I guess that must mean that I am making money!


SantaCruzBluz - 3/28/2010 at 04:34 PM

F*ck the IRS.


lolasdeb - 3/28/2010 at 04:34 PM

Haven't filed yet ... hoping to get it done this week.

The pain in NJ is only just starting, and it's about time someone stepped up and said enough with the out of control taxes and spending. I find it pretty funny that the teachers are screaming that they don't get a raise or if they get a raise some people get laid off, be happy you are earning and stop whining.

Oh my.................$12000.00 in taxes?? Is that property taxes??? And you say the pain is just beginning??? You folks need to move down south. My property tax on a 1500 Square ft house is 600 bucks.....


fensranger - 3/29/2010 at 02:33 PM

paying through the nose and the brain for that matter.

That depends on where in the South. I pay $6500 on a 1850 square foot house in intown Atlanta....but we all have tradeoffs in choosing where to live.

I had too much of an IRS refund this year as my income fluctuated. I'm going to track it to try to get it closer to $0 this year.


BigDaveOnBass - 3/29/2010 at 03:22 PM

My property taxes are @ $1700 for an 1800 SF home in Columbia County, GA, but they seem to go up at least $100 every year.

And I'm getting a good federal refund this year, but I'm not saying how much. Doesn't matter, though. It's already spent.


sully - 3/29/2010 at 03:25 PM

hey bdob,

my taxes were $8500 on a 1600 place in jersey. jersey - wtf??!!

if it weren't so darn convenient to the shore, nyc, philly and the mountains, i'd be outta here fast.


Bhawk - 3/29/2010 at 03:25 PM

We owe. Big.


DanB - 3/29/2010 at 03:27 PM

property taxes here at the beach only $808, 2225 sf and it's only 6 years old

I'm one blessed fella

YES! That is what my ex and I paid on a 3,000 sq. ft. home on half an acre in South Jersey. The property taxes in North Jersey are even higher. I bought an 1,800 sq. ft. townhouse in November. My estimated taxes are just under $6,000.00 a year. Still a lot, but soooooo much better than what I was paying before...

I am 15 minutes west of Charlotte. Charlotte taxes are higher too. I was wrong, I rechecked my taxes were 1100 bucks. Still much lower than some of you folks. If I lived in the city limits it would be higher...........I guess there is nowhere to run to escape these crazy high property taxes............Its got to where the government is working the budget backwards. It use to be you budgeted what you brought in, now they divide up what they need and assess.......


funkyfan - 3/29/2010 at 05:38 PM

I don't yet know what my refund is gonna be but my baby daughter helped us out by coming in on 12/31/09!

North jersey checking in .... 3000 + sqft house on just under 3/4 of an acre with a very nice size lake in the backyard .
Taxes are $15,500 ...... Yes that's right $15,000 ..... on the plus side . I'm getting a hefty refund back this year . More than a third of my property taxes.

Don't get me wrong property taxes SUCK in NJ !

Closed? Traditionally they have held tax parties up here, people waiting for the last day to send their returns in and it becomes a party, snacks and music too.


gina - 3/29/2010 at 06:16 PM

No refund here. Last year I got one, so I know Uncle Sam gave me the finger, and it wasn't a thumbs up to increase my karma!


LinnieXX - 3/29/2010 at 06:26 PM

$1100 a year for property taxes here in NE Jacksonville on my new 1000 sq foot home; it sits on 2 acres so i'm not complaining...sounds like it woulda been 11,000 if i had it built in NJ!!

though....holy cow, the appraised value vs. what i owe is pretty damn scary


LinnieXX - 3/29/2010 at 06:27 PM

oh and to answer the original question, i owe this year, but not too much.

Yes it is sweet living here in Jax Linnie in everyway you can think. My taxes or about the same maybe a little more. I will be sending the IRS a ton this April. My wife and my Ebay stores are off the chain. What kind of store do I have? Well I sell money "Money Penny Coins" is my Ebay store.


MotherTeresa - 3/30/2010 at 05:10 PM

Why would the post office be closed on Thursday April 15th this year?

My real estate taxes are $8000 on my house which is on 3 acres and is 3000 square feet and $1800 on a vacant 2.5 acre lot on the Wakulla river


JimSheridan - 3/31/2010 at 12:47 AM
