    Two months ago. Knew exatly which forms we needed to wait for, collected them all and went to the accountant the day after the last form came in.

    Tax return came back on February 26.

    I've done mine and some other people's. I think I went to the Ms. Ridgeway School of Recordkeeping. Tax season is the one time each year my left brain comes out to play.

    Did mine 20 minutes after getting my W-2. Got the refund direct deposited five days later, spent it.

    Thanks, Turbo Tax!

    I'm just going to point out that for another year, I love my accountant.
    Granted, as others have said, that money is going straight out the window.

    Just finished 'em. Paying in $225 to the feds, getting back $560 from the state, so overall I'm cool.

    Went to H&R Block a couple months ago, got my refund via direct deposit in less than two weeks.

    Two free-lance gigs that paid a total of $800 lowered my refund almost $500. I don't think I'm going to free-lance anymore.

    I thought free-lance didn't count unless each gig was $600 apeice.

    I'll be taking mine (already done) and a coworkers to the post office at 9:30 or so tonight. Then I'll be headed back to the office to finish posting videos from our people at VA Tech.

    One company: $650 free-lance gig.
    Other company: $150 free-lance gig.

    Two 1099-MISC forms totaling $800. Sapped much of my refund. Accountant said that's how it is.

    Did I get screwed? And if so, what should I do on next year's return, besides getting a new accountant?
