  • The longer you wait the longer it last! I wish we would have waited a little longer.

  • Maybe he doesn't have the money to pay the Accountant right now to do your taxes.

  • No clue. I did mine in mid-Jan and had my money by the end of Jan. We needed the money to move. I did, however, just do my state and local taxes.. but my state pays my local!

  • I think mine, stbx is trying to get a bank account and then refuse to split it. Otherwise I'm chalking it up to laziness.

  • Maybe won money? I don't know, but I haven't finished mine yet either,, perhaps he just is a procrastinator like me?

  • Maybe he owes money and doesnt want you to know about it. You would usually get a letter in the mail saying they would put a lien on them. I had that happen with some student loans and postponed my taxes while I got it handled. You should just ask him why.
