Come to the IRS. We have cookies!! [Jan. 28th, 2006|07:43 am]
[Current Mood |bouncyfalling down. a lot.]

Just finished my taxes! Wow, I'm like a grown-up now. How exciting...
Anyway, I'm getting everything they took out of my checks last year mailed back to me because I didn't make the minimum taxable amount, whoo :)
I did the e-file thing, and it was fun and annoying because I kept thinking the system would crash or something and take my refund away. But it didn't, huzzah!

By the way, I'm sick again. This time it's a cold, which feels (almost) great compared to that flu last month. But, twice in one season? I wonder if my immune system's weakening, or if it's just the joys of being around bookstore customers all day. Nasty, vile things...! Or, maybe I just need to eat more and stop being such a wet blanket (eww Amanda, stop being so wet and blankety!). Heheheh.

(Yes, I do indeed have no clue what I'm saying. One of the fun things about Amanda when she gets a cold--she's so out of it that it's really amusing to her and others. I'm talking in 3rd person! Yaaaaay :D)

I was thinking of using e-file too; did you have to pay, or download anything to use it?
Was it not too confusing?

It was remarkably easy. It just asks a bunch of questions and has you fill in W-2 amounts and such. And nope--it was completely free. The only thing you have to put up with are a bunch of random, repeated questions about "Would you like to download our full software package for only $29.95?", or such. But nope, didn't have to pay a dime (though I know that some states charge a processing fee for e-files), and it fills in all the tax forms for you from the info and lets you print them out afterwards.
But anyway, I used http://www.taxactaonline.com .
