  1. Thanks. I couldn't find anything current on the AMT and the more I read, the more confused I got. Apparently they finally got it fixed.

  2. You could always buy 1 round of .223 at today's going rate.:rofl:
     

  3. You are smart to break even on your tax bill. Why give the government a free loan each year?

  4. I also thought the tax rate over the last 2 years was stable.

    Depends. At a 6% CD rate and a 5% savings acct rate (remember those days?) I'd agree with you.

    At 0.25% rate, $5K in a refund means $6.25 in "lost interest." It may not be worth the while.

    (FWIW - I almost ALWAYS owe.)

    No federal change in 2012. States are a different story.

    Okie,

    Just looking at the Fed, was there a specific difference in your taxable income or a reduction in some tax credits, or less withholding perhaps?

    Not sure why anyone would want their money sitting in the Fed's bank account instead of their own. :headscratch:

    I guess that's what makes horse races. :horsey:
     
  10. The problem I have is figuring out exactly how to make it come out near zero. I'm afraid I'll wind up owing money.

  12. I **THINK** you claim 0 for 6 months out of the year, and then 9 for the remaining 6 months.

    I could be mistaken though, but I know a lot of people who do it that way.

    Just to be sure you don't owe, you could always claim 0 for 7 months out of the year, and then 9 for the other 5 months.

    Did you bump up into the next tax bracket?
     
  14. Okie. If your paycheck tax deductions are set up correctly, you should normally have your tax owed/refund within $100 either way. Otherwise, you are just lending your money interest free to the Federalies. Make interest on the money you let the govt hold for free.
     
  15. okie my friend, you can eat off the McDonald's dollar menu 4 times. :wow:

    I know it is not a steak or buffet, but you can still eat. :supergrin:
     
  16. Next year you will owe Barry money.

    No but I'm amazed that a bunch of informed adults don't know why their take home pay changed and 'feel' in must have been a tax hike by that evil anti-American who won the election. I guess to much fox news has rotted your brains.

    BTW- your take home pay would have been effected the same why had mittens won.
