I found everything I’m going to find. Now, I just gotta do them. 2 months ago

The problem right now is finding everything I need!! As I go through my papers (another goal) I’ve been putting the tax stuff I come across into a folder. Once I have it all I can start actually doing the taxes. 2 months ago
I didn’t re-add this one to my list earlier because every time I thought about it I could feel my blood pressure creeping up; I didn’t need a big bold goal staring me in the face daily. I don’t know why I get such ridiculous knicker-knots about it, but I do. Every year.
As assumed, 2013 was more complicated. We bought a place halfway through the year, so we had all the usual paperwork plus first time buyers stuff, interest, rrsp cash-ins, self employment forms (with two different home offices at different times), kids fitness credits, careful calculations as to what can and can’t be claimed and for what time period, plus someone was trying to help declutter and tossed out some important receipts (thankfully I managed to access them all online), etc.
We were going to get someone to do them for us this year, but I wanted to give it a shot, and it turned out to be surprisingly easier than I thought, so I just went ahead and did them myself, pulling everything together bit by bit with just standard online software. I didn’t even need the extra leeway given due to the Heartbleed buggery (which shut down the CRA site for a bit).
Due to some changes, filing online was even easier this year than in previous years. Everything has now been filed, and now the jubilation and exhaling can commence. 2 months ago
never mailed my T4. But today I made the steps to inform them, and it should be on it’s way. 3 months ago
1 hour & $55 later, I am done. I got a $15 discount through my credit union & another $5 off when I put $100 of my federal return on an amazon gift card. If I wasn’t quite so lazy, I probably could have saved more $ or not even had to spend anything. So it goes. 3 months ago
Been having a hard time starting this. I believe that taking this step will break the dam. 5 months ago
I got an email from H&R Block that the IRS accepted my return on the 1st of Feb and checking the IRS website, I found out my refund was approved and will be sent out on the 20th.
As soon as I get the refund I can close out this goal. 5 months ago
Have forms, categorized expenses. Buying the Turbotax software today. 5 months ago
This miserable year I only collected unemployment from NY, so my low income qualified me for free filing of my federal and state (NY) returns through H&R Block online. I didn’t have to file a NJ return because my income (not including unemployment, which NJ doesn’t tax) was below 10k.
It took less than an hour as tax returns become quite simple when you have no income. I’ll check this goal off when the return is accepted and my refund is received in my bank account. the IRS isn’t going to start processing until the 31st and NY state will begin on the 30th. Last year I remember it took only a few days from when I e-filed to when the refund was deposited into my bank account. I hope it’ll be that fast this year. 6 months ago
