    1) you must file form 10299x.
    2) You cannot download form 10299x. You must file form 100200038 to request an official paper form 10299x.
    3) We will send you the form in 6 to 994 weeks.
    4) after 23 weeks, we return your form 100200038 because, for your convenience, we require you to have it countersigned by your bank manager and the head poobah of your regional illuminatus chapter, the identity of whom we cannot divulge.
    5) since you have not returned the required countersignatures within 48 hours, we have closed your file, and you must begin again at step 1.
    6) We have discovered that you have not filed form 10299x. You must now pay a penalty.

    Well did you? If you have a complicated return, especially with the increasing number of forms the IRS adds to the filing process each year, I think it is prudent to take more time to ensure everything is accurate. You'd still have to pay your taxes in time though.

    Yup, for many of those reasons.

    I owed the fed $1,117 this year icon_confused.gif .....and they just took it out of my checking account yesterday...

    It's particularly painful because I was not expecting it. Luckily, I had the funds available due to my savings, however I'm gonna be honest and say I was super annoyed that I owed the government money. Even though, I like roads, police, fire fighters, laws, courts, public schools, etc. I HATE paying taxes lol

    i was SHOCKED when the tax man told me I owed money. This was the first year I've ver owed money. Typically, I've always gotten money back...not this year

    My job is technically as a partner in a partnership, and I don't get the partnership tax return until later in the year. No partnership return = can't file individual tax return on time.

    Use the IRS withholding calculator to project if you're having enough taken from each check. That way, you should be able to ensure you won't have to pay next year. Just be sure you don't give them TOO MUCH.
