Mine was held up by the lifetime learning credit, but it was approved last week and I'm just awaiting funds.

Ugh.......

My wife makes a fair bit more than I do, like more than 2x. Sitting here going over our docs before sending them off to our preparator, and her total withholdings (federal, state, local) is more than half my gross salary.

She was like, "This isn't enough to make me a Republican but..... holy sh|t!!!"

so... nice marriage penalty on the child tax credit! The difference of that credit versus last year is greater than the amount our refund went down. Add that to the payroll taxes going up at least $100/mo... Greedy government.

the ceiling on the child tax credit is x for singe filers, but not 2x for married filers (Its a little under 1.5x). Normally it is $1000 per child credit toward tax owed (as opposed to the way deductions are handled, which reduce taxable income), but it is reduced by $50 for every $1000 above the ceiling. Ours went down from $1800 last year to almost nothing this time.

1) Just because she makes a lot more than me she is not my 'sugar momma'.

and

2) Sack the eff up. There's nothing emasculating about a woman making more money than you. (I could go on with an 'unless' section, but personal attacks are verboten)

I quit my teaching job last June and went back to grad school full time. My return this year definitely helps...

An interesting tax deductible item:

Rapper Jim Jones is figuring out how to deal with Uncle Sam next month, and he's considering deducting expenses on his income tax for making it rain. Well guess what, in theory he might have a fighting chance of winning.

new jersey is asking me to send in copies of all my documents before they take 90 more days to process my refund.

-charges you a zillion dollars in property tax
-acts confused when you're due for a refund

makes sense.
