Am I the only one?

I absolutely LOVE tax time!  I love gathering the receipts, 1099s, W-2s, etc.  I love inputting it all into Turbo Tax and seeing my refund balance grow higher and higher.

I know we could make it so we aren't "loaning the govt. that money" throughout the year, but we enjoy large refunds which we typically use for vacation in the summer.

I just launched my Turbo Tax, but I'm so annoyed that I haven't received any W-2s, 1099s, etc. yet.  I know they don't have to mail them until Jan. 31st, but I usually have them by now.  I don't like waiting!  LOL

Am I weird??

Grr. I replied to this already. I hate when that happens.

No, you're not the only weird one. I like tax time, but only if someone else does the work for me. ;)

I don't mind it. I actually got one of my W-2s in the mail yesterday. We're just waiting on both of Michael's and the other one of mine.

OMG-I am an English major, so anything to do with numbers or finances totally makes me zone out.  I think my eyes just glazed over .... :)

I love the return, which is going to a new vechile this year so that I have safe reliable transportation for my kiddos. This year its going to be small since I'm filing single head of household, which I think I can do since I'm legally seperated.

Not a huge fan just because we have owed so much in the past. Last year we got a nice refund, though. Hopefully we get some this year, too.

I am so far on the other end of the spectrum because we pay, I always feel robbed I have to pay more money for working harder, lol, so I hate hate hate hate tax time.

But good for you!! I don't think you are weird at all, it's super fun to get money back for sure!
