Tax time is both exciting and scary for many individuals. I know that for me, tax time is both of those things, at least it was this year. I worked more last year as a self-employed freelance writer than I ever have before, so I knew our tax situation would change. We also purchased a home last year, which further added to a new tax situation. Our refund was not as much this year as it has been in the past, which I understand since I did not pay quarterly taxes on my earnings. However, we are expecting a refund, and I know some people end up owing, so I am just thankful to be getting something back.
I received this great link from H&R Block where you can check the estimated date of your tax return refund. Ours was just accepted today, so we should be getting it back soon! This chart will let you know when the IRS estimates you will receive your refund, based on the day they accepted your return.
You can also check the status of your refund through the IRS at https://sa2.www4.irs.gov/irfof/lang/en/irfofgetstatus.jsp
If you have not filed yet, then you may want to do so as soon as possible. You never know what type of refund you may get, and there may be credits you can get that will help offset any taxes you need to pay.
We have used both H&R Block and Turbo Tax online tax filing services, and I do recommend both programs.
Turbo Tax offers 100% accurate calculations, free e-filing, free printing of your returns, and you are guaranteed to get the biggest possible refund!
