    How long does it take to get your tax refund? I sent mine electronically last week. I am hoping I will get one of two next week. That would make me happy.

    Strange, my girlfriend got her's already. Very quickly. Possibly because it was a much smaller sum of money, those greedy bastards.

    Btw, I think we had a similar discussion last year about tax refunds. Along the lines of how long it takes. Damn, time flies. I recall yours went in your "new house fund".

    I was reading something that based upon the nature of your return they will not even start processing for a protracted period. I think the EZ filers are fine but I think if your return is a little more complex it is supposed to take longer due to the latest D.C. stand off between the parties.

    Yeah, some additional forms they don't start processing right away - for instance I took the lifetime learning credit (for a wine class I'm taking :slayer:) so my return was delayed a few weeks. If I had just taken the deduction it would have been processed right away.

    Some of the things making me happy (and thankful) right now:
    -Paying off some credit card debt!
    -finally got a mirror shine on a couple of shoes (boy, that takes some elbow grease!)
    -flying off to attend he wedding of a good friend - he was very ill, and now he's better
    -being able to train again, after a year of training through injuries

    Going for my first physical in five years at the end of the month...hopefully, will be even happier after that!

    :D
