Grocery deals and a tax estimator

January 7th, 2006 at 11:28 pm

Grocery store deal joy - fresh pineapple for .67/lb, dried spaghetti/fettucine/linguine for .50/lb, mixed nuts for $1.79/lb. All beat what I'd seen in North Seattle in two years, based on my price book. I've stocked up, but now what I have do is eat what I have and stop buying!!!

I found a tax estimator: http://moneycentral.msn.com/investor/calcs/n_tax/main.asp

Not that its perfect, but it should be able to tell me if I owe or am going to get a refund. With the IRA it looks like this year I will get a refund - first time in about 5 yrs. I aim with my withholding to owe a little, about $100. The estimator is giving me a refund of about $450. It gives me a little impetus to get all my forms together.

    Congrats! Isn't it nice to find they owe you rather than the other way round!Smile

    I must have done something wrong. MSN says we'll get $1600 back and H&R Block says we'll get $2152 back. This is a big difference (obviously), but it's also interesting how much of a break we get from having two very different incomes! Smile Hope everyone has good news from these!
