Feeling pretty pathetic right now. My stomache is knotted and I've been fighting back the tears.

I filed my taxes today and to my utter shock we eont be getting a return. Instead I owe money. Makes me sad.

We haven't filed yet because I know we will owe.

This is why I don't file until April 15th. I refuse to pay early. 

Welcome to the adult tax bracket. Itemized deductions may be able to save you. A lot of people who are used to getting a refund are used to the standard deduction and forget how many things can be written off. 

Did you already submit your tax forms? If not, see if you can itemize and save yourself a bit of money.

I'm sorry to hear this :(

I don't know who is in the worse shape my dh & I filed together and thought we were gonna get a good refund but guess what since he has a balance on CS we get nothing...she gets it all :(

Oh well we have to move on.

Been there. One year we owed a little over 8k. Pay it and move on. It's not the end of the world.

You don't need to pay it by then. Send the form asking for a payment plan.
