Spinoff: When do you usually do your taxes?

In the thread about what people are doing with there returns, someone mentioned they'd already done theirs and should be getting their return soon... I was impressed. I'm usually pretty quick about our taxes, but I'm still waiting for tax documents from our bank. Our mortgage documents just came the other day, and our employer documents came late last week. I plan on doing our taxes as soon as the bank documents come, so this year will be on the early side.

Last year I didn't do them until mid-March. One year I didn't even think of them until Valentine's day, and then didn't file for a few weeks after that for some reason.

When do you guys usually do your taxes? You get like 18 weeks to do them, but it seems so many people wait until the last minute.

I do them as soon as I have all the paperwork. I'm still waiting for my employer to send me my W-2 though. They like to mail it on the last day they possibly can. Ugh.

If a news story breaks and no one on the Internet comments, did it really happen?
Yeah, mine are pretty well done. I am missing a couple forms, but once I get them in, I will be finished.

We just got all of our documents yesterday, so I will be doing them tonight!
We usually do them...late. I think we're up to 2006, which is the most caught up we've ever been.
I do mine as soon as I have all the forms. I have a second job and I haven't received that W-2 yet. But as soon as I get it, I'm off to the races.

That sucks, MK.

I will do mine the day I get my W-2.

I'm getting impatient. Yes, already.
The best revenge is living well. The second best revenge is fire ants.
I have mine prepared early but since we owe, we take our time paying. Sometime in the summer, most likely.

We usually do them the first week in Feb. We are always given our W-2's right at the last minute.
I do ours as soon as we have all the paperwork.
Like as soon as we get our W-2's. My husband already did everything but that, so when we get the W-2's on the 30th, we'll just have to enter in a couple of numbers and submit. We want our moolah!

I started mine tonight. I think I'm missing some stuff from the bank, and I need Purple Heart to get me a copy of my receipt from a December donation.

I haven't received my W-2s yet. It can take me years to do taxes, but since I'm caught up with my Federal, I'm doing 2008 before April. As soon as possible in fact. Thank you Turbo Tax.
