I'm getting ~$900 for federal but I still haven't filed state for when I was in Maryland.

Shouldn't this be called the official '05 tax refund thread? Since that is the tax year that the refund comes from.

$200 total between state and fed. I just can't figure out why anyone would take a smaller paycheck and take the refund later. Money now is always worth more than money later.

I owe some, won't know how much until around April 10th when I bother to sit down and do them up to the point where I hit the submit button. That doesn't happen until April 15th.

Just picked up Taxcut the other day. Haven't started it yet though. But we had a kid so hopefully that means we get something back.

My dad worked for the IRS for 30+ years so I had him do my taxes. Can't remember what federal was, but state & federal combined was about $815

Damn, I just got back from the accountant. I owe $3600 :( :( :( :( :(

AMT came up and bit me in the ass, big time.

Oh well, it was nothing I didn't expect, but I was hoping for a miracle.
