Just Got My Tax Refund!

March 16, 2007

taxes

I just got my federal income tax refund direct deposited today! I got a “whopping” $202, which is pretty small compared to the average tax refund this year of $2,423, according to the IRS! I’m still waiting for my state refund, which is supposed to be $179.

If you haven’t already started on your 2006 taxes, get started now! The more you wait, the more you’ll keep putting it off. Get all your paperwork together and get the tax return done. If you have a refund due (which is two-thirds of you) then that should be enough incentive to finish your return and send it off. If you owe taxes, still get the return done, but wait until you file. I wouldn’t wait until the April 17, 2007 deadline, though, because of the mad rush close to the deadline. Instead file a week or two early to avoid the rush. That way, you’ll avoid the hassle and you’ll still maximize your money.

Don’t forget, tax day is April 17th this year! Only a month away! So get started now, or you’ll regret it!

    The IRS announced that nation-wide, tax day would be April 17th this year. Most states are also extending their deadlines as well. April 16th is a holiday in Mass (why certain northeast states always had an extra day) and Washington, DC (which is why everyone now has an extra day).

    Turbotax has a nice table with individual states:

  2. Ok, I stand corrected. National Tax Day is April 17th, 2007. Thanks Andrew!
