I won't owe anything I claim single 0 all year

We just got our final W2 today. We probably won't do them for a little bit. DH and I aim to break even every year, so the only push to get them done is no late fee if we do end up owing any. Last year we got back like $500 from federal but owed $600 to state.

Got all my forms yesterday, getting enough back to pay off the van and get some work done on it, repair a window, get propane, some landscaping, and some fun- just waiting to see what sort of delay to expect because of the educational credit.

I think we're still waiting for a couple w2's. Dh plans to do ours after we get the missing ones.

I do have my W-2 but I haven't filed yet. I definitely do not wait til the last minute lol I shouldn't owe anything, but I guess anything could happen. My goal is to pay off the tires I just had to buy.

I don't have my husband's W-2, yet. He may have it, but I haven't seen it. So, I haven't done our taxes. I don't wait until the last minute to prepare them, but I usually wait to file since we almost always owe. We will mostly likely owe. In the rare event we get a refund, it will probably be less than $200, and will just go in our savings account.

My mom works for an accuntant who does my taxes for free so they get done when he can squeeze us in, but I have gotten everything to them :)  $1000 will go into each of my girls college fund, I am getting new glasses!, DH and I both need some new work clothes and I am having my housekeeper come in!!  Yeah!!

Taxes are done and electronically sent in.  Just waiting on them to tell me they have been accepted.

We are using a small portion to get a couple of things done around the apartment, but the bulk is going to buying a van, since we are now a family of 6 and cannot fit in my little 5 seated.  I am hoping to have enough to buy it out right, but we'll see.  If not, my bank was the bank that leased my first car, so I'm hoping they will give me a small loan to get another one and I can have much smaller payments.  I don't want a brand new one, just something I can fit the entire family in.

Won't file my taxes until they are due this year - because I will owe money.

I'm getting mine done tomorrow. I expect a refund. I need to pay some bills, decorate the nursery, and put away for Disney
