Spinoff: When do you usually do your taxes?

We are doing ours February 2nd. We've received all of our necessary paperwork except my husbands W-2's. He is supposed to get them next week.
We're another family that does them as soon as we get all our paperwork. No sense waiting around. We've only owed one year (hubby messed up his W-4!), and we like to get our refund money as soon as we can!

If we have to pay, we do them in March and send them in at the last minute. If we get money back, we do them as soon as our W2s and bank statements come in. This year we're getting money back so I'm just waiting for one last thing to come in before I sit down to do them.
whenever. I just file as many extentions as I need.

This is the first year I'm filing jointly. Should be interesting.

I try to do them in February once I have all the documents. It's a pain since they are a bit complicated. I do my dad's taxes as well, and they are more complicated. Without tax software I would be doomed.

For my dad I deduct medical expenses, so it takes quite a bit of time to add everything up in a spreadsheet, calculate the mileage for doctor appointments, etc.

I also do a spreadsheet for my future FIL's medical expenses too. He has an accountant but he still has to provide the medical stuff. If I didn't do it he wouldn't bother.

I'll say it again -- I hate tax season.
I have done mine as early as January 2nd.

Now that I do them online, they can't be filed til January 15th which is when I did them. My refund should be in my checking account any day now.

Since I don't have to send in W2's or any other forms, I don't have to wait. And I can figure out most things like property taxes, mortgage interest, etc before any forms come in the mail.

I don't have my W-2 yet. I get mine done right away pretty much. I love getting my return super-fast, directly deposited into my account, especially knowing some people just keep waiting around!
While we have finally starting getting a refund again (albeit a small one), we don't mail our taxes in until the last minute because we are on a payment plan for back taxes.

We should pay that off this year, thank God. If only they would reimburse me for the hours I spend on the phone each year, talking terms with the IRS!

My goal is to have them to the accountant (yes I'm too chicken to do TurboTax once again. I do all the work and pay him to sign his name) by 2/28.
