    If you don't owe there is no need for an extension. You can file at any time to receive your refund. You have to do it within three years though. Remember that any amount of time you let the Gov. keep your money without interest is time it could have been earning interest for you...

    :D

    At the same time the border was ignored and about 1,000,000 people entered the country illegally per year. This would mean that today about 2740 people entered this country illegally most crossed the border at Mexico.

    The President was busy calling those concerned citizens in Arizona vigilantes and ignoring the threat that terrorists might enter the border. Thank the little gods they recognized the threat and banned those lighters though, we are so much safer. And you can only bring four packs of matches at a time, those of course couldn't be used to light bombs placed in your sneakers, whew we narrowly missed the threat of somebody lighting a birthday cake with a lighter while on board a plane.

    I actually have a someone do them, fallout from the opening years of my divorce proceedings, (which took 4 years). I was full-time in school, with 3 kids, receiving 'unallocated support' instead of child support. My first 'single tax filing' resulted in a bill of nearly $4000! Took it to IRS person and they said I was screwed, but yeah, I owed that. Then told me I could pay like $12 a month! The next year it was like $4300! I finally told my brother who sent me to his accountant. She said that the idiot could not pull this off, he owed child support, not 'unallocated support.' She filed amended returns and I got all of it back + interest and the idiot was hit with the taxes. :dev3: Until last year, she wouldn't take any payment for my taxes, said that made her decade!

    I filed an extension, but I am not sure if I owe or not. My corporate tax return was due march 15, but I filed an extension for that one too. Until it is done, I cannot file my pesonal as i don't know how much profits will flow through from the s-corp to me. I hate tax season! And i hate having to do it every quarter!
