CBS is doing tv spinoff on the Rush Hour movies. Airs tomorrow.

Is Chris Tucker in it? Because I've learned that you have to manage your exposure to Chris Tucker. In some proportion like "watch two of his movies then hope to never come across him again in your lifetime"

So I went to Turbo Tax and imported all my shit (thank you based TurboTax) and lo and behold it said the complete opposite: that I would be getting a couple Gs back (still doesn't sound right and I haven't put in my dividend income or cap gains yet, but at least it's a directional improvement on the employer income alone).

I'm going to guess that you were missing the medical insurance deduction. H&R block said I owed a lot until the final step when they were like "Yo, did you have insurance? Oh Yeah? Cool, have a couple Gs back".

TurboTax took the lighter touch approach...they assumed I had insurance until the end when they confirmed it.

I kind of like the H&R block software though. I like how you can look at the form itself in parallel with their line of questioning...so if you are someone who actually knows how to read a tax form, you can make sure everything looks right.
Also, H&R Block let me combine lots on investments...Turbotax wanted me to enter every security separately.

Nah, it wasn't due to the health insurance because I hadn't even gotten to that point yet. I had only put in my W2s for both states and it said I owed MA several thousand. Something got fucked up somewhere.

In any case, I just wrapped up my taxes and I ended up owing the Feds $500 or so and MA around $400, but got a refund of like $390 from RI.

What pissed me off the most was how Turbo Tax raped me at the end and made me pay $40 per state return and another $80 to file Deluxe cause of my investments. What the fuck? They got $160 of my monies. That pisses me off.

I think their UI and UX are quite pleasing, but it's not worth $160. I think a fair price for everything I did with them is around $40.

Did you not read what he said?  OTC and I had the exact same problem: H&R Block was like fuck you pay $5000 in taxes after entering my W2s.  By the end they're like "fuck yeah, here's $3k."  The last screen for the federal return was the health insurance question.  That was more than a $2k swing.

Whereas TurboTax kept telling GF, "Don't worry about the money, baby, you can work that out with my friend at the end. Just buy me another drink. Don't you like me? Don't make me sad by acting all nervous or like you want to be with somebody else. You're having fun, right? Isn't that what really matters?"

I'm happy to pay someone just to avoid the tedium of entering 12 W-2s and filling out 2 schedule Cs.

I had a nightmare last night where I was taking a midturm for a class I never went to.

I wasn't able to answer any of the questions. Not a single one.

Then I woke up with cold sweats.

😭😭😭

Exactly. The health insurance was the very last federal question...so the whole time I was like "wtf how do I owe thousands of dollars".

Dirty secret is you can buy the H&R block software (formerly "Tax Cut" nice and cheap...) and then go use the online version of turbotax to verify your numbers. The online turbotax doesn't charge you until you file.

I might switch back to installable turbotax next year though. I think they have much better automatic investment importing from the companies I use...and I made a bunch of tax loss harvesting sales this year, so I would have to enter every trade individually. Or maybe pay someone.

I know, it's a little overwhelming, so I didn't know where to start. And then I got distracted by @lawyerdad's very intimate knowledge of a hooker's sales pitch

You missed what he said about 'the humbler'
