Taxes!

Looks like today not much is happening with my crew, so I'm going to settle in, since I've got all my receipts and forms and things, and figure out what I owe. Already did a basic calculation for deductions, so I'm going to go through that again fine tooth comb-wise and make sure it's all looking right, then total it all up. Tres boring, but It Must Be Done. And what joy to think of how much money will be used to keep killing people in the name of freedom from terrorism, too!

So who waits until the last minute? Who has someone else do it for them? Do any Americans actually donate to the election campaign thing? Do any try and pay down the debt? Blah blah blah...

Accountant. Get one, if your tax situation is the least bit complicated. They _always_ save you money. Sometimes a _lot_.

Douglas, Sunday, 3 February 2002 01:00 (twenty-two years ago) link

I've done my own deductions for a couple of years now and I'll second Douglas' general advice -- if you don't/can't take the time to sit down and plow through all your receipts (I always keep mine reasonably organized), get somebody to do it for you. My withholding has always been pretty good for my main job, and I would usually get a refund, but my freelance AMG work eats into that to an extent since taxes aren't withheld there. But with itemized deductions applied, it all comes out very balanced, *much* more so than if the standard deduction was taken.

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 3 February 2002 01:00 (twenty-two years ago) link

Once per year is enough for me. ;-)

I realized I needed an accountant when my calculations had me in the red a couple of bucks, and HIS calculations threw me a few hundred in the black. I don't know how he did it, but I'm mighty glad.

That said, would the assmonkeys I freelanced for PLEASE get their W2s in my mailbox now? Y'know, so I don't have to push the deadline envelope?

I've never understood the whole american tax thing, you're not all self employed are you? doesn't it just come out of your wages every month?

CarsmileSteve, Monday, 4 February 2002 01:00 (twenty-two years ago) link

It does indeed for me, and for many others. It's not exact, though, more like a general withdrawal based on your earnings then fine-tuned after the tax year ends when prepping up your return. For instance, if I were only working my regular job, I'd usually be due a small refund because we're set up here so that the automatic withdrawals, if you've reported your status correctly, cover your taxes and then some. Then as mentioned there's that income where taxes aren't immediately removed, which is the case with my AMG work. Then you factor in itemized deductions on top of that, if not standard, and etc. etc. And this is just me with a relatively simple setup of being a single person -- add on dependents, family situation, if I owned a house, if I had other investments, etc. and things get even more complicated.

I got a small refund about a month ago, after filing my taxes about three weeks before that. I've begun to utilize the assistance of the same woman my mother goes to, at an H&R Block place. She is the absolute best and makes the whole process go as smoothly as possible, which is really great because Lord knows there are more than enough headaches one can encounter in one's financial life without even going into the whole "taxes" issue!

I spent all day today going through mounds of receipts from the last five years, to prepare some back taxes. I'm probably gonna owe big time since I didn't file from 2000 on. (I tried to for 2000 but they wanted rent receipts and I didn't have 'em; I wasn't on a lease then. I haven't had one till last February, actually. Should be interesting.) And HOLY FUCK do my hands hurt! Cab receipts are TINY. ALL receipts are tiny, in fact.

I'm trying to get it done by Tuesday so I can just go to my accountant's and be like, "here's the stuff, it's done, go to it." Then I get to watch my hard-earned checking account drain away. Sigh. It'll be worth it to have it behind me, though.

A nice refund this year, for once. My accountant suggested that I use it to make all of this year's quarterly estimated payments in advance and I said "hahahaha... no."

So, yeah. 1099-MISC from City Pages, roughly $2500 in "self-employment" earnings. Do I use Schedule C, Schedule C-EZ or Schedule F (for profit/loss from farming)? Probably not F, of course. But I can't figure out how to use the other two. And then I guess I need Schedule SE on top of it all?!

Nothing was taken from that relatively small amount of profit, but I assume it will absolutely drain any chance I have at a refund. (The last few years have been just under $1K.)

Every single state and national politician in the USA loves to tinker with the tax code. The result is a mind-boggling complexity that never repeats itself from year to year. The forms keep shape-shifting, the instructions are baroque, credits come and go with bewildering rapidity.

I've kept our financial life as boring and vanilla as it possibly could be and I keep comprehensive records. But I finally gave up doing our taxes because I never knew for sure that the some new wrinkle had been inserted deep into the instructions, so I had to relearn the procedures every year. The tax software helps, but now I just hand it over to a preparer and wash my hands of the whole mess.

I plugged along on my own for some years but I remember Elvis Telecom telling me in the start of the 2000s I should really go for a tax guy. After I realized a couple of long-standing errors in approach that I'd been doing for some time a few years later, I took said advice and frankly I'm all the better for it. My situation is certainly less complex than some but it's not easy plug and play either, and frankly I'll always be reassured knowing someone else's name is on the return as well as mine.

Ned Raggett, Saturday, 16 March 2024 17:33 (two months ago) link

For awhile there weren’t very many changes tbh (between 2000 and 2016) … the last 7 years have been chaotic in comparison. The “evil software companies” love to advertise how many changes there are and how it is just so much that you really need to pay for their software…. the reality is that the vast majority of the changes to the tax code don’t affect the average person’s tax return. Also, as a professional tax person, I have now come around to the concept of the free file, pre-filled click and submit thing for people whose taxes are simple. Like if everything you are taxed on and can deduct is reported to the IRS already, and there isn’t anything else… you shouldn’t have to pay for help or software or spend much time dealing with it.

I can nerd out about it but … yeah, it is dumb

ꙮ (map), Saturday, 16 March 2024 18:31 (two months ago) link

It's not impossible to figure out what needs to be done to fill out one's taxes, just detailed, time-consuming and very tiresome. For example, Oregon's lawmakers keep adding credits, then removing them, or changing the qualifications. A few years ago the OR Dept. of Revenue revised their basic tax form from 2 pages to 4 pages. When the big federal tax changes were passed at the tail end of December 2017 it caused states to make cascading revisions to counteract the many punitive features the Republicans inserted just to pwn the libs in the NE and west coast. So, have fun!

Very much depends on circumstances I think. Mine are more complicated since becoming self-employed, though still not excessively so. We do standard deduction, but if you're in an itemizing-deductions situation, that gets more complicated too. For all the years my wife and were just getting employer W-2s and a little bit of freelance income, yeah, that was easy-peasy.

I have the extra simplicity of living in a state with no income tax. Big change from my NYC years where there was federal, state AND local.

Oregon is a challenge as far as states go, you are otm Aimless. And then there is the Multnomah County form on top of that…

I'm in a slightly weird spot myself -- not the end of the world -- where my initial returns went in, but I only got partial refunds back; turns out my preparer -- who I've used for many years! -- missed a bit of coding, so had to send in amended returns. The remainder from the state came back in a week but I haven't seen anything yet from the feds, and given all this there's no way I can immediately track the progress of that amended return. (Unless I'm missing something? Any advice welcome! But larger point here -- table, you're not the only one seeing a delay, so I wouldn't fret here.)

Full scale audits are too expensive to impose them on us little people.


Lol … I have actually seen it tbh. It was actually a real problem… and got called out for the racism inherent in it. It’s easier to find mistakes and discrepancies in the tax returns of poorer people and the IRS hadn’t devoted much to training staff on more complicated tax issues. However the IRS has recently decided that they are going to devote time and resources to… auditing wealthy people and complex businesses entities! Amazing!!

sarahell, Tuesday, 30 April 2024 19:48 (one month ago) link

So … the things that could happen that not getting your refund in 3 weeks could indicate:

1. It might show up next week because of their processing cycle.
2. The IRS thinks there was a mistake:
2a. The IRS fairly primitive computer system matches what you report on your tax return to what others have reported as having been paid to you or received from you.
2b. The IRS rarely gaf if you fail to report student loan interest paid or take a deduction for mortgage interest… so usually it’s an income side mismatch.
2c. If you failed to report income of a type they have on record that you received or if you reported less than what they have on record that you received, they will most likely send you a correction letter.
3. This is a classic pass-agg document that says “you said this” … “however we think you should have said that. If you disagree, file an amended return or contact us, otherwise we will assume we are right and you owe us money.” The document will also come with instructions how to pay them what they think you owe.
4. Sometimes they are wrong.
5. Unless you agree with their corrections, it’s often best to file an amended return because there are potential deductions in relation to the income that the IRS is not going to calculate for you.

sarahell, Tuesday, 30 April 2024 20:01 (one month ago) link

Ime the most common things the IRS catches and sends correction letters on are:
1. Unreported self employment income
2. Investment income that is in your name but a relative deals with the account and you don’t have the paperwork sent to you so you often forget it exists (see also: aging parents)
3. Unemployment income for short periods of time
4. Cashing out a retirement plan or life insurance policy from a former job especially if there was hardly any money in it to begin with
5. A w2 from a job you quit in January that you forgot about and they sent it to an old address

sarahell, Tuesday, 30 April 2024 20:07 (one month ago) link

6. Investment income from a stock plan from a company you no longer work for because brokerage firms will often not report the basis of employer stock so when you sell it it shows the cost basis as 0 and it looks like you made a huge profit

The IRS fairly primitive computer system

Andy the Grasshopper, Tuesday, 30 April 2024 20:16 (one month ago) link

We had an issue where the IRS kept saying we owed money that had already been paid long before. We had the receipts and everything, yet every two to three months we went through the cycle of getting a letter in the mail stating we still owed the money > logging in to see that indeed the payment had been made but was listed as "processing" > waiting on hold for two hours for a rep to confirm we had been paid and no need to worry, the system was just lagging behind due to the pandemic backlog > getting another letter stating we owed the money > rinse and repeat for about 16 months before it was finally resolved.

Yeah, it's not like DoorDash requires you to show the actual SS Card - you can probably tell them any old number

years ago I worked at design firm and we briefly had a contractor from eastern europe.. I kept asking her to complete the W-2 (she claimed her SSN# was 'private') and when she finally handed it back to me, her SSN# was XXX-XX-1234 .. literally 1234 were the last four digits. Huh, what are the chances of that?

CONFIRMED - IDENTITY STOLEN.

looked at the transcripts and you can see the address that Doordash had for me is one I've never had in history. this should be a fairly easy process to dispute as I can prove on my own credit report I've never lived there. have set up credit freeze and fraud alert on my account. have all of the forms ready to go.

Doordash replied with what seems like a form letter to indicate yes it was fraud and they deactivated the account. apparently this happens so much at their great, well-run company that they already have a template for it.

welp that'll make my claim with IRS easier.

Though I totally understand the anxiety… I remember when I got cited for having “borrowed” registration tags on my car and I had convinced myself that I was going to be sentenced to jail or picking up garbage on the freeway in a yellow vest … I ended up with a $250 fine and that’s it
