You may have noticed a stunning silence about taxes over on this blog compared to the other blogs who have been talking about filing and returns and all of that since February.
I finished doing my tax return three weeks ago, but I didn’t actually file until Saturday. Not that I owed much, but just I was very apathetic about the whole thing. On the scale of things I found important it was low. I did it. There wasn’t much to report. It’s done. Now I can move on to other things.
I owed $59 to Federal taxes.
I got a return of $57 to Kansas taxes.
I got a return of $679 from my “other state” taxes.
So, I broke even between Federal and Kansas (that bodes well for next year when I’m a full resident and not just a partial year resident). And I should get a return of $679 from the other state I lived in. Honestly, I had to redo that calculation 3 times before I believed it to turn in. That seems ridiculously high, but H&R Block insists that it is correct.
Both the Federal and the Kansas returns were e-filed. I had the $59 for federal taken out of my emergency fund. I had the $57 from Kansas deposited to my emergency fund. So I shouldn’t notice any substantial change.
I had to snail mail file my other state return, so I’ll get a check. I’m assuming because I will be getting a pretty fatty check that it will take a while. I’m not holding my breath. I’m not even counting on the money. When it comes I’ll just put it on my credit card debt and be done with it.
I’m not sure why I’m getting that much or why I’m not that excited about getting that much. But I’m not. I just really don’t care and I don’t know why.
