waiting and waiting...for money

March 18th, 2010 at 03:31 pm

I'm still waiting for our tax refund. I feel like I've been waiting forever. The IRS web site said it'd be in my account by March 16, but alas no. Maybe I'm extra anxious because it's a large refund (north of $10k) and I have countertops to pay for.

I also feel like everything is on hold, waiting for such a large chunk of money. Once it's here, I can send it into the various accounts where it needs to go and be done with it. I just hate waiting!

On a positive note, I finally got paid for the first two months of my regular freelance gig. Now, I can pay my qtrly taxes (for a decent amount) and move all that money where it needs to go: taxes, IRA, tiki fund, etc.

I just feel like everything is on hold!! I hate it!!

    I know that feeling, but I'm just waiting and waiting for my property tax bills that come out at the end of April. I have a huge amount of money to pay at least 75% of the total, and I want to PAY IT OFF NOW!

    Definitely know the feeling... but mine hit when it was supposed to. Of course, mine was much less... lol. Hope you get it soon!

    I'm wondering why mine hasn't come yet. I was surprised by the March 16 date, because I thought the gov't issues all refunds on Fridays. I sure hope it comes tomorrow!

    I know most people would say we should withhold less, but our freelance income varies so much from year to year, we leave that in to sheild us a large unexpected tax bill. Plus, it gives us an added automatic savings plan, even if it is interest free...

    Yeah, I haven't gotten mine yet either. In a strange sort of way, I'm glad that I'm not the only one because it's making me anxious as well.

    We're still waiting on ours, as well. It usually doesn't take this long. We filed on the first day of February. In the past it's only taken 3 to 5 weeks to get it back when we do automatic deposit. I read on someone else's blog that the IRS was warning refunds would take longer this year, but I didn't see anything to back it up. Well, I see it now. I hope it comes tomorrow. I've got a surgery bill to pay off this month.

    So, I just went on the IRS site and the pay day was moved from March 16 to March 30. That makes me mad. No explanation, nothing...

    I still haven't filed=--which is way late for me. I can see I'd better get busy!
