          Mine is all figured up, and sitting here, waiting for me to write the check. I'm giving CA another $300 on top of what I already paid them. The way the state figures tax for part year residents is stupid. CA is figuring my tax based off of what I made in both AZ and CA, divided by the % of the year I spent in CA. Since I make more here than I did there, I am in a higher tax bracket, and now have to pay them more, even though while I lived there, I paid the tax appropriate to the amount of money I made (lower tax bracket).

          AZ on the other hand doesn't care what I made while in CA, they only tax me based off of what I made here, and the % of the year that I was here.

          CA and their crooked tax system can bite my a**! :mad:

          Ok, I feel better now.

          EDIT*****

          All told, I paid just shy of $18K.

          Ok, I don't feel better anymore, I think I'm gonna go puke.

                We rec'd a healthy return. Yes, it does help that you have kids and a house to write off. Next year, I will be claiming my daycare and more write offs i.e., electric, phone & gas, etc. Our returns was spent on Jeep mods and road bike equipment. Marvin will be getting a 4" lift installed sometime this month and bigger tires ! YAY

                  ah. all depends on your job. If you've used your jeep in the pursuit of your business, or for inventory etc. you can. I got to write off my winch this year because the times i've used it i was pursuing inventory on private property or for maintenance at my shop.

                    Done and spent the refund already. I'm technically a WA state resident and we don't have state taxes, so I only had to worry 'bout the Feds. First full year living in the condo so we had a healthy deduction from the interest. Didn't get to play with the money, though. Hadda replace my brake system.

                      I got 6 K back and spent it 2 months ago on bills and Jeep stuff. Got a 5.5 SPOA lift for my YJ and some 33's. Next year hoping to get some cool toys to bolt on too So that made it about 7 inches of suspension lift total....Getting harder to toss the kids way up there...lol

                              Only need 20% of the 300K, that's 60K. The bank provides the remainder, unless you are planning on getting a $1.5 million crib.

                              Then you can borrow against equity and pay off non-deductible loans as the interest on the mortgage IS deductible. Ask your tax professional about it!
