Well, the 2014 IRS Bullshit is now in the hopper. I filed the Federal and Arizona forms electronically through TurboTax® with whom I am not happy. With the property sale in Kalifornistan this year, there were capital gains forms to fill out that were not included in the “Deluxe” package from Intuit. I had to upgrade to “Premier.”
Doing some comparative after-the-fact shopping, I discovered that the H&R Block equivalent to the TTax Deluxe suite DID contain the forms I needed. Had I figured that out before going with the old standby TTax, I would have switched to HRB this tax year. But, that is now water under the proverbial bridge.
I always try and anticipate the future tax liabilities and adjust the withholding such that I wind up paying them a little, since I hate to loan the Gov’t money interest free. This tax year, I did not anticipate buying a new truck, so the sales tax on that got me money back from the feds although I still owed the Arizona coffers a slight amount.
Going back to the home sale complication mentioned above, I also had to file several forms with the
Communist Franchise Tax Board in the old state. That cost me an additional $40 in tax preparation fees from TTax. In spite of that, The tax calculation shows no tax due to the evil empire of K-stan. We’ll see - those bastards in Sacramento will probably try and stick us with something.
