It's that time of year, TAX RETURN TIME!

For the past 2-3 years I have started a thread about what people were going to spend their tax return on. While greeted with some hostility, most people actually enjoyed the threads. I don't know how much I will get back, but I have some big plans for it!

I am going to try to pay a grand or so on my wifes car (We owe 3k). I am going to try and slide as much as I can at my wife's student loans (only owe 11k). Outside of those two debts, we don't have anything else luckily, because I pay out of pocket for school (ouch).

My next step depending on how much I get back would be to put at least another grand into our house fund. I live on James street, and I have designated our house fund as "Operation James Street Freedom". I would like to put some money into my IRA, currently it has none. Give my wife a little extra walking around money.

I think the last thing I would like to do is give some money to our Deacon fund at my church. This is a fund that is given by church members and distributed to the needs of the church and community if need be by the Deacon board. This fund has helped a lot of people in very bad spots, and it's my duty to help out my fellow man. Our church also houses the food pantry for our community, and we received emails saying the food pantry is direly low, they have served more families this month than ever before. So I would love to take a hundred or so and buy some food to donate.

What dreams do you guys have? I know most of the people here will probably pay down bills, but its fun to dream anyways.

I try and break even, why would you want the government holding your money and making interest on it when you can already have it?

because sometimes it can be really difficult to accurately calculate how much tax you will owe

and I definitely want to make sure I don't have to pay at the end of the year - that's a kick in the nuts for sure.

also it's nice to give yourself a little present at the end of the year.

I made a lot of charitable donations and worked a lot of pro-bono hours this year. As well as paying in much more than my bracket dictates...I'm hopeful for a solid return. If so...it's high time to buy my girl a ring. We've been together 11 years in June. High School sweethearts. We've both been putting off engagement until we were financially stable, so it's not just my fault, lol.

Audited two years in a row? What kind of red flags do you set off?

Well, it depends on the size of the loan. I did some calculations on various size loans. And as of the rates a couple years ago, you could about count on paying double your principle on a 30 year amortization excluding any PMI. I can't remember if that included property tax or not, I don't think it did. Either way, it's good enough for a rule of thumb. Borrow 100K for 30 years, pay 200K total. So yeah, that's as good of a case for paying extra principle if there ever was one. And the hell of it is that interest rates are low!

Mother **** that! Is it a full audit or just asking to verify aspects of your return?
