Aloha Friday Taxes

If you’ve never heard of it, it started over on An Island Life.

I ask a question….I answer it….and then you answer it too!
Sound like fun?
So, for this week’s question:
Q: Have you filed your taxes yet?

A: We are just turning our stuff in. It’s still messy with all the insurance stuff from the fire. While the government doesn’t prevent you from maxing out your gains for the year they do for loses. We have to spread our loss over 5 years to get it all. It’s a pain.

    That is a pain! We have an accountant do ours, because of my husband’s business. He already filed them.

  2. Cathi says

    We have filed our taxes and we’ve already received our refund. My husband usually files in January.
    Happy Aloha Friday!!

  3. Filed and refund already received!

  4. No. We always owe so, no rush here.

  5. Haven’t filed yet because we own a business and most likely will have to pay. Our accountant handles it all for us.

    taxes, yuck! the hub is in charge of getting them done which means he collects the paperwork and takes it all to the accountant. the last two years we’ve filed extensions and it looks like this year will be the same . . .

  7. Yes filed, got our money and spent it on a new (to us) minivan already.

  8. We have an accountant nicknamed ‘Shady Lady’ who does our taxes for us – she usually doesn’t file them until the fall, so we haven’t turned all our stuff in to her yet. 😉

  9. The Social Frog says

    Yes, we have and it is sitting and waiting for our move to Japan,lol.

  10. Denise says

    We filed the first week of february and then received our return within a week and a half and have spent what we want out of it.

  11. Jen E @ mommasreview says

    We filed them this week!

  12. We have not done ours as yet.
    I hope hubs will get home to do it in time.
    Sadly I don’t know how to do it .
    I will learn.

  13. Harriet says

    We’re business owners and it takes forever to get everything together for the accountant.

    Have a great day!

  14. Not yet, my hubby does them. 🙂

  15. rach says

  16. Marie says

    Yes, just waiting for a refund to help our poor saving account! 🙂

  17. Nope! I was still waiting for some papers to come in, and I think I finally got the last of it today!

  18. Deborah says

    Yes, been done for awhile now.

  19. Ours are done. We’ve already gotten them back and spent the money.

  20. Kayla says

    I really don’t work, so I have no need to file taxes or anything of the sort-Although, I would love to get a refund check regardless…Anyone want to send me one!? LOL

    Have a great weekend 🙂

  21. No taxes done here yet. My 1099 was done incorrectly for work that I did and still waiting for that. Going to try to get hubby’s uncle everything that we need this week so they can get done soon.

  22. Erica G says
