- Opted for 2 federal W-2 withholdings instead of just 1.
- Had almost $400 in savings to pay taxes on.
Total cost for my 2008 tax season was $36.95. TurboTax was $25.95 and the $11 for the state tax I owed. Both amounts have been paid. Both the fed and the state have accepted my returns, so now I just wait for my refund. I am pleased with the amount because I really wanted to see how close to zero I could get without owing the fed money. I think I did pretty well! That $150 (which I estimate will arrive by Feb. 6 at the earliest and hopefully Feb. 13 at the latest) will go towards my computer fund.
