Still waiting for our CPA to finish ours, I know it's going to be bad this year. Next year should be a little better though!

I owe the IRS $557
Like the 4th year in a row
Cost $110 to prepare. It's worth it to me cause I don't have to mess with it

They should cap it like they do for social security.
Iíll be super happy if I owe less than 5k but itís probably closer to 10k.

Well kinda, they cap what you can get out of SS at 62 or so......right? I bypassed that amount in my early 40's but continued to pay into social security until I left the corporate world. Just a scam either way sadly!

15 years ago H&R Block did my Taxes. They messed up. I got audited. They, IRS, said I need them $1,500 plus penalties and interest.
I was like NO WAY!
I dug my taxes out and sure a shoot they took my rent x12x12. I was like darn it. Than I remembered in had bought that garuntee. I called the office. They was like I'm no sir
I was like I'll see you in 5 minutes.
In get there she calls the mgr. Mgr looks at the return and says hmm how'd we miss this. The cut me a check and amended my return.
I did my own taxes til Obama Care took effect. I didn't have insurance and wanted them to do my returns.

She did is a comparison of a projected return with the new Trump Tax cuts. If nothing changes we're forecasted to get $610 return
Maybe I can finally buy a Krivoman or another Sniper Hawg Lite.

We're getting 401k @ work. In the best week or 2 that'll kick in. I'm doing 7%. Seeing how that affects my budget. Hoping to kick it to 10+% but that'll take away my hunting budget.
Course since I can hunt 10 minutes from the house...

From the google machine:


The maximum amount of earnings subject to the Social Security payroll tax will climb 7.3 percent in 2017 to $127,200óup by $8,700 from the $118,500 maximum for 2016 and 2015, the Social Security Administration (SSA) announced on Oct

I think this is for 2018

Social Security portion (6.2 percent) limited to the $128,700 taxable-maximum

Been using H&R Block for over 20 years with no problems. Using the same guy the whole time. They even helped us out the year someone else filed under my SS number. Have an appointment today.

Turbo Tax is great. Ive used it for years.
I did use a CPA a few times, but I had rental property in Texas, lived in Louisiana (state tax). It was worth it to help figure depreciation on property, ect. Now I'm back to single income/and apartment life, so turbo tax all the way.

Ive used HR block software once, don't remember it being too bad. It just seems that on simple taxes forms, people pay a lot for some CPAs. With all the new programs, mathematical error is minimal, only human error in entering info.
