Mine was a total of 5200....I am going to pay a credit card down, go to Disneyland, buy a camcorder, give DH seed money for his deployment, and buy some glasses so I can see again....the rest, I hope I can save a little

What are you going to do with yours?

We're putting ours into savings this year.

Last year we took our return and went to DisneyWorld, but that's only because we got an incredible deal.

We are buying a new furnace/air unit, since we built the addition the other one isn't as strong, so we want a new one.

I don't know yet either - man, it seems like it takes FOREVER for all of my tax stuff to get here! But, hopefully I'll have enough to pay off one credit card, pay one down, and get new living room carpet! We have one more deduction this year (Kamryn was born in 1-05), so it'll be interesting to see how that changes what we get back.

Yes...one of the perks of have a Net Operating Loss for our previous company is you can carry it (the NOL) over for quite some time. Even though we normally make a decent living, with our NOL it puts us in the negative and therefore makes us look ridiculously poor...hence, we get back a nice chunk of change.


We haven't done our taxes yet but, considering everything that happened last year I don't know what to expect this year.

We'll see.

We're getting $7,900 back this year...thanks to DH's reenlistment bonus from Oct.

April, you and I think alike...going to invest in new eyes (after I'm done being pregnant, of course).

The rest goes to student loans and savings.

We don't file till the beginning of March. I have lots to get ready to take to the accountant. I think we should have a fairly decent return. I am guessing around the 4500.00 dollar mark. Which is going into our savings account Might each take 250.00 and treat ourselves to something, but the rest in the account!
