I just finished mine on Thursday. Getting about $5,000 back, total. I know I'm withholding too much, I'm giving the gub'ment a free loan, but honestly today - I really don't care.

How many people do their taxes themselves? My return is still pretty straightforward, so I've been using completetax.com for the past three years and been very satisifed.

Yep, due Tuesday. Monday is the little known (except to the gov't) Emancipation Day. I use TaxCut and it seems to meet my needs. I used it last year for planning my tax bill this year and the net result was that I wound up owing $70 so I'm pretty happy.

In MA, it's Patriot's day, also the day of the Boston Marathon. Maybe I'll have to brew something.....

Anyway, taxes were done mid-February. We got a lot back. My wife and I use these funds for captial improvements around the house. Last year was a new roof, this year is just small stuff - refinished a floor, painted a room, new light fixture, etc.

TurboTax for me. Capital gains suck at the end of the year.

I was done about two weeks after I had my W-2's. Turbotax is the way to go for general tax returns. Love the child tax credit which netted me a $6500 return, although it seems like alot, I'm sure the kiddos cost me way more than that on a yearly basis.

I've had my taxes done for a while now and got my return back on Friday. I do my own taxes, the hard way-no turbo tax. I actually used turbo tax one year and got the same results as doing them from the book and the book took less time, for me anyway.

My return went into an online account earning 5% and will go into a Roth IRA at the end of the year.
