I got a little bit back but only because I remodeled two houses and put new roofs and windows in them. If not, I would have needed to write them a check this year. I can't remember the last time I got money back from the tax collectors. I don't know what to do with it. I suppose the wife will go down to Wal-Mart and stimulate their economy.
With the $8k homebuyer's credit i came out dandily. Also figured out a way to write off my health ins. prems. And after writing off some improvements on a rental property I had no quarterly vouchers to pay for the first time in maybe 10 years. Hoo-ray!
I keep miscalculating my taxes. I'm overpaying because I do not fully account for qualified dividends. I don't know why I keep doing that but the last few years, the IRS has been sending me a check back that I don't expect.
