Its Tax Time!

Its that time of the year again.

Tax time!



I think this year I will do my own taxes again. One problem that I run into each year is remembering all the documents and information that I need to gather. So this time around I made myself a checklist:

  • - W-2 from Employer #1
  • - W-2 from Employer #2
  • - W-2 from Employer #3
  • - EIN and total amount paid from Daycare #1
  • - EIN and total amount paid from Daycare #2
  • - List of itemized deductions and receipts if applicable
  • - Student loan interest amount
  • - 1099-R for 401K distribution from Employer #2
  • - Information needed to claim 1st Time Home Buyer Tax Credit (gotta buy a home 1st)
So far I have everything except for the following:
  • - Information needed to claim 1st Time Home Buyer Tax Credit (gotta buy a home 1st)
I probably won't be filing taxes until late March or early April (before 4/15 of course). I also want to wait and see if there will be any new tax incentives from the new administration.

Are you ready for tax season?

Do you have all your documents or are you waiting on some?

I'm still waiting on my student loan stuff and my IRA statement. Darn it. I am so ready to prepare and send this thing off. I overpaid, so I'm expecting cash.

@ Kay Kay

Yeah girl. I started with my 2nd employer in June and then contract change took place in October and I started with employer #3. Same position and department.

Shake them down. Make sure you get all your info so that you can get your moola.

@ Sistah Ant

Who do you have for your student loan? I have Nelnet and I just logged onto my account and they had the 2008 interest information there for me. I could even print the form out. Check with your loan company and see if they offer something similar.
