Tax Return

Like everyone else, I love to complain about lousy service from government agencies. A pleasant contrary example for a change: I filed my taxes electronically Saturday, April 10. My state of Virginia refund was direct deposited to my checking account on Thursday, April 15. How amazing is that?

    Yeah, that’s one thing that the Commonwealth does really well. I had to snail mail mine and I still had my refund deposited within a week of the date I put the envelope in the mailbox.

  2. Hey, how about my post about how our current tax system is bogus in the first place?

    I get to mail the Commonwealth my check in about a week. With the Feds, at least I can submit the funds electronically.

    Well, except for those stinkin’ quarterly payments. Those I still have to pay by check.
