Gimme My Money Back!

Gimme My Money Back!

The weekend was pretty average. I didn’t feel too well, so didn’t do much. I spent two hours on the phone Sunday with the stupid turbotax people because their software didn’t know how to tell me where it was getting this $942 in property sales from when I didn’t sell any property. Their support people aren’t so bright either. It’s a long story, with a happy ending in which I get Turbotax Deluxe for free and I eventually find out where the extra money is coming from, so it wasn’t a complete waste of time.

Speaking of money :) I Got my bonus today. And then they took half out for taxes, yay! Well, not quite half because it’s a little less than half and 6% goes to my 401k, but still, it’s a lot and it makes me want to cry.

And now this is the part of the blog where I reveal my secret plans. My friend and I are starting a new blog. I’m working on the design at the moment which actually, is almost turning out as well as I planned. Hey, it works in IE6, without any hacks, whee! It should be up within a couple of weeks. You all will think I’m crazy, but I don’t care, it’ll be fun. It’s more like a personal scrapbook for me than anything else.

–edit– LOL, check out the comment from the turbotax guy. I’m guessing he searched for stupid TurboTax on google? Talk about above and beyond. I’m impressed.

Also, I’m doing a Day in the Life of Lissy today. You can check that out tomorrow. (See sidebar for past year’s).

  1. LOL about the Turbotax thing, but that’s great that it didn’t turn out badly.

    Ooh, congrats on the bonus!

    Oh wow, a new blog?! Can’t wait to see it!

  2. Luckily, TurboTax has always been good for us. We have used it for four years now, this year and last year doing it online, rather than buying the software, and so far, so good. Of course, screw ups can always happen… and you were one of the unfortunate ones to run into one. :( I’m glad it all worked out though.

    And congratulations on the bonus!

  3. It’s pretty hard for someone to determine where an item of income is coming from when you don’t have access to the return or a complete picture of the data. I am curious as to where the property sale is coming from because I know TurboTax just doesn’t create income from nothing.

    My apology that it took so long for the issue to be resolved. It does show, however, that we will invest a lot of time with each customer to troubleshoot the issue.

  4. I always hire someone to do my taxes for me so I don’t really know much about tax. o.O

    On another note, I can’t wait to see your joint blog, as my high school best friend and I are thinking about doing the same, when I go back to Asia in the summer! Since I’m using a Mac, feel free to let me know if you’d like to see how your layout looks on a Mac Safari/Firefox/Opera. I’ll send you the screenshots. :)
