Taxes are done

Took all of 20 minutes and we are paying less than half of what we normally pay...
Thank you Mr. President...

    My "take home" refund went down a good bit...

    ...but I sold quite a bit of my mutual fund holdings to put a down payment the farm that we bought, so...  Capital gains tax is a **** (even the long term variety).

    I have zero idea as to whether or not the latest tax code worked for, or against me as so much is different for me for 2018 as compared to previous years. With that said, I can't complain about the outcome.

    We benefitted some from the changes but was most impressed by the speed this year. My wife did ours using TaxAct online and we received our refund eleven days after filing.

    That is who I have been using for the last several years and that speed is normal for them.
    Finally got my wife's last W-2 (mailman put it in a neighbor's mailbox) so I will be doing taxes tomorrow.

    Our return was almost cut in half, but we got more in our paychecks. We don't rely on tax returns so it was a wash.

    Because we don't believe in giving the government interest free loans we don't get refunds...
    I withhold from my DoD retirement but not from my Social Security so we always pay, but we paid a lot less this year...

    Using Turbo Tax, I got fined $80 for not claiming enough withholding on one of my retirements. Never saw that before.

    Still waiting on the accountant.  Filing for 2 businesses and our personal.  Usually don’t get ours until the deadline.

    Mailed my crap off today - I'm done except for paying the accountant.

    I have to go get my taxes done with my soon to be ex wife.  I'm sure it will be a blast.  We've always gotten a large chunk and since our son was born last year he will add to it.  I'm looking foward to it so much!
