Did my 2009 Taxes

I kind of knew that I would go all the way this time, much like I had done last year....the exception might be if TurboTax did something strange again. It didn't, so I went ahead and e-filed.

Did my 2008 Taxes

Intended to just quickly enter the W2 and 1099 forms, to get a rough idea of how bad I'll owe this year.

But, preliminary findings is that I'll get a refund of $2288 from federal and $384 from state. This is largely due to the deductions of being a home owner....or perhaps entirely....

I'll go sleep on the this...and then review things in closer detail tomorrow and then see about e-filing.

Did my 2007 Taxes

I owe $45 to Federal and $423 to State.

TurboTax crashed once while I was starting the E-Filing process >:-( But, hopefully everything worked out right in the end.

The Wrap: Almost couldn't start my taxes.... The Sequel

Yep....got TurboTax 2007 Premier to install by rebooting my computer into Safe Mode. Almost gave up on having it start installing. It didn't start installing until I brought up the shutdown dialog. Guess it needed that kick to finally get going.

Or perhaps it needed give up on its attempt to phone home since that's not possible in Safe Mode.

But, after restarting (twice, due to iTunes craziness) I updated it (14 updates), transferred the data from last years return and downloaded state. Answered the first set of questions, and then ran into more questions that I wasn't ready to answer at this time. Perhaps I'll get to those next weekend.

Almost couldn't start my taxes.... The Sequel

Link: http://lawrence.chen-online.net/index.php/2007/03/04/almost_couldn_t_start_my_taxes

Looks like it might be a repeat of last year!

I purchased the Premier version, but the installer bombed out. Seemed vaguely familiar.... a search of my blog showed it was almost the same time last year that I started....

The reason I wait this late is because I own stock that issue dividends, so my broker doesn't guarantee delivery of my 1099's until the end of February. I got that one on Saturday....so I'm pretty sure I have all the stuff I need to get cracking.

Guess I'll wait until I'm done fighting with MS Money 2006, and then try booting into safe mode and see if that makes it install.

Must be getting close to Tax Time.

Should be about the right time of year to dump hard copies of last year's financial activities and see how bad I was....

Twice Three times already MS Money 2006 has crashed on me. I do have a copy of Money Plus Deluxe (2008) to upgrade to, but I want to put this off until after I've done my taxes. Because I'm sure they've changed the interface completely yet again, and I want to be able to find all the info while doing my taxes and get that right...rather than waste my time trying to figure out a new interface, etc.

Meanwhile, I usually order my copy of TurboTax in December...but before I went to order, they sent me a copy of it. At least I thought they did. It said "Here's Your TurboTax Software", "Your 2007 TurboTax Software is Enclosed!", etc. I've been using TurboTax since 1998.

But, I just now looked at it closer...and it is only TurboTax Deluxe. I've been buying TurboTax Premier, and this year would be no exception. Guess they don't know me. Because it isn't *my* TurboTax. Now I have to figure out how to get TurboTax Premier.

Oh wait...looks like they sent a "Deluxe or Premier" version to the occupant of my Personal Mail Box at the UPS Store. Guess I'll use that.

Almost couldn't start my taxes....

Decided it was time to finally at least install TurboTax, so I could maybe start contemplating doing my taxes.

Except I couldn't get it to install. setup.exe wouldn't run, application error....ntdll.dll. As much as I hate it, I rebooted a few times.

The hate is because iTunes 7 has been weird....sometimes iPod Service will get stuck, consume lots of CPU, and iTunes will never detect the iPod, and I'll have to request it to be Safely Removed. Though I have noticed that it seems more likely to work if I boot the computer with iPod attached, but not my Blackberry.

Finally, I booted up in SAFE MODE...and was able to get the installer to run.

TurboTax Premier 2005

Well, decided that today would be a good day to....

ummm....okay, install TurboTax.

The install was pretty ordinary, but since the reason to install now was to be hitting them up for the regular updates that come out....I started it up and tried to do an update.

BANG! BSOD! XX(

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
