A temporary absence from Michigan does not make you a nonresident. That income is taxable to Michigan.
I understand that. I'm still paying. I just thought about making the absence more than temporary and turned down another contract. And now I have to pay Michigan.
I usually get liquored up and work my way through TurboTax. After a few hours, a couple of start-overs, and lots of frustration, I just hit the submit button and hope I don't get audited.
I'm using a CPA for the first time this year... only b/c I had a lot of unique events in the past year which need to be meticulously handled. I'll go back to Turbo Tax again next year.
I bought some batteries, but they weren't included... so I had to buy them again. What do batteries run on?
I've always done them myself (Turbo Tax), but I just moved overseas and my house is not a rental as opposed to owner occupied, so I'll probably pay someone to do it this year.

But what if we want Tylenol, not aspirin? Is acetaminophen okay?
Actually, this is irrelevant. Give me ibuprofen.

I do it by hand and then use the fill in forms at Irs.gov. with those forms you and e-file for free. Filed my return last week and got my refund already. State taxes I mail in on April 15th since I always owe something.
Do you work for an accounting firm?
I guess you could say that. I sign my own paychecks and sleep with the firm’s president every night.
I use the same guy. Small world, huh?
So how much was your jackpot?
I'v always believed that we would have a flat fax system in place but the people who make headache medicine are conspiring to keep the tax code extra complicated so people get headaches.

What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
I've been waiting on one more 1099 form. Frustrating since I've had my taxes ready to go for a couple weeks.
I can determine the capital gains and dividends from quarterly statements, but the problem is they don't tell me which dividends are qualified and which aren't. One of my ETFs is an international emerging markets fund, and based on last year there isn't any info for me to determine qualified/non-qualified myself. They just reported it on the 1099 last year.
Anybody else use TradeKing? They delayed their 1099s last year until March 15, then last week did the same for this year's forms. Boners.

Can you get a copy online? Most places mail you one, but also just post them on your account page to view online.

Everyone should do their own taxes because it would really alert people to how f'd up the tax code is. I'm always amazed at how people think some things are deductible because their tax person asked them if they installed a water heater this year, a new dishwasher, kid in college, etc and they think they got money back because they supplied the info. They're clueless that once they run the costs through the formula that, in the end, they aren't eligible for the various credit/deduction because they make too much money. They should at least make it a law that for every deduction/credit that the first thing is if your AGI is over x, don't bother, you don't qualify. They do for some, but not all.
There are way too many variables to say that everyone should do their own taxes. Our preparer is very good and up on the latest rules. We got a nice deduction because my wife is in college and she has advised us regarding the right number of deductions to take. Day care costs are another credit although it's limited to a max of $600.00 (20% of the max of $3K). I used to use Turbo Tax but after getting married, my wife having her side job, rental income and loss etc... it's easier to pay someone.
It's online-only. It wasn't a matter of sending them. Rather, the clearing house hadn't even processed the 1099s. Fortunately it was posted to my account a day or two after I posted that, and I filed the same day.
Refund was approved and should arrive on Wednesday via DD.
