Well, sort of.
My taxes are done! Unfortunately, no breaking even for me. No big refund either. I owed a chunk of money to the feds, as I mentioned before. W-4 problem has been fixed, however, so I’m crossing my fingers that next year is significantly better.
I did discover another perk to TurboTax, however. After telling me that hey, I should check out my W-4, TurboTax also calculated estimated tax payments for my 2009 taxes, should I choose to not change my W-4 (or not be able to do so). I was a little scared when I saw those payment receipts print out though. At first, I was worried that I had to make estimated tax payments because I had screwed up this year and owed so much money. TurboTax doesn’t bother to explain that little detail.
A little bit of research and I had it all figured out, though. The internet knows everything. No estimated tax payments for me. Somehow, it’s less painful to never see that money, rather than have to hand it off to the government every few months. I know, I’m weird.
