I also paid off my low interest mortgage in early 2020 (before COVID.) I sometimes wish I have that extra money in the market but then I remember how nice it was having my feet up by the fireplace and not having a job...

Splitting the difference between hibbeldy and happy: my e-filing was rejected and I have to submit on paper. This would have been a much bigger deal if I'd waited for tax day to submit like I usually do.

I finally got sick of my student loans after 22 years and paid off the balance. I still had to write a five-figure check. That shit is insidious man

Another thing - my e-filing has been rejected for the last three years. No one’s been able to tell me what’s wrong - they just say to file via mail. I always owe anyway so fuck em all - I guess I get to keep my money for a few extra days

My e-filing was rejected this year. The e-mail contained an error message to copy and paste to find out the source of the error. Turns out I mistakenly entered a zero into two lines that I should have left blank. I resubmitted the corrected form and it was accepted shortly thereafter.

I filed late last year, which meant I could not efile last year, which meant to efile this year I had to find my IRS PIN or match the AGI from that filing, which I tracked down on my IRS transcript* but it still rejected me :-(

*Who knew there was such a thing? Not me.

Maybe e-filing is just a scam to suck us in, like that one Toyota Corolla they advertise at 12 grand that doesn’t actually exist

I'm an unmarried small timer with no dependents who only deducts state income and property taxes, mortgage interest, and charitable contributions. I can complete my tax forms in a few hours.

We had our refunds in the bank by the end of the first week of March as per usual. We're so boring.

I just walk into the Accountant's office, sign a form, and walk out. Y'all have people to clean your house or mow the lawn but you'll try to DIY your taxes? GTFOHWTMFBS
I was totally going to pay someone to do it this year....but it turns out that if you sleep on that until the last minute, there aren't exactly a bunch of well-recommended accountants ready to just jump on your case and do it.

Message I got was that the only way I was getting that done was to file an extension and wait until after the deadline to work with someone...so I just did it myself again. Luckily my investment accounts linked directly into turbotax and I didn't have to do anything with the many pages of trading data that were sent by the robo-advisor. On the other hand, that's exactly the kind of shit where I don't fully trust it and I'd rather have a pro look at it.

So somebody remind me next fall to start talking to accountants...probably best to get one picked before the end of the year just in case there are some things I could do to optimize my taxes given I am planning to move states mid-year.
