2008 taxes finished

I finished filing my 2008 federal and state income taxes today. What a pain. I used Intuit’s online federal preparation system. That cost $30, but went fine. Rather than pay $35 to file the state taxes (which are easy, even with itemezation) I tried to use Indiana’s i-file, their free online service. Somewhere along the line, I missed the boxes to fill in how much state and local tax had been witheld from my paychecks, so the state thought I owed them a lot of money.

Which meant that I had to file an amendment (because the ifile didn’t have a “go back” at that point) in writing, explaining the mistake and pointing out that the state owed me money, not the other way around. Anyway, the amendment and my federal forms are all in the mail as of today, so good riddance.
