    Why Was My Balance Due To State Less Through Turbotax Than It Was When I Did It Manually? Basically, I did my taxes through Turbotax and the amount that I owe the state was so small, that I decided to skip the $39.99 fee to efile and just do it manually. But when I do fill out the form manually, it shows me owing $200 more than what it says on Turbotax. And I cannot preview the Turbotax calculations to see what I am doing wrong. Any suggestions?
    I figured it out! I had forgotten to include my childcare expense credit.

      You obviously messed something up when you did it by hand OR you fat-fingered something in TurboTax. There’s no way to tell where your error is without seeing printouts of both returns.

      Check your state’s revenue department and see if they have partnered with any providers for free e-file services. At least you will be able to see a copy of the return that way without paying anything.

    US Tax Form? I’m a US Dual Citizen. I don’t live in the United States anymore, therefore I don’t have a job and income in the US. Do I still need to fill a tax form, and if I do, how can I do it online? I intend to travel to the US this summer – would it be likely to face problems if I don’t fill a form in time? Much thanks in advance.

    • Curator says:

      US citizens are taxed on their worldwide income. Dual nationality does not change this. In most cases you will not owe any US tax, but you must file in any year that your gross income exceeds the fling requirement for your filing status.

      The filing deadline if you reside in a foreign country is June 15. You can also request an automatic extension to October 15 using Form 4868 http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4868.pdf . If using the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion and you expect to not qualify by October 15 (unlikely if you resided in a foreign country for all of 2013) you can request a special extension using Form 2350 http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f2350.pdf

      See IRS Pub 54 http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p54.pdf for information for US citizens residing abroad and specific details on the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion. See IRS Pub 514 for information on the Foreign Tax Credit. You can use whichever method results on the lowest US tax liability. The only limitations are that you cannot use both for the same income and the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion has a maximum earned income limit that varies annually.

      You can either file a paper return by mail or e-file. Click on the Forms link on the IRS home page http://www.irs.gov . You can e-file using commercial off-the-shelf software or any of a number of on-line resources. Any of the major players — H&R Block at Home, Tax Cut, TurboTax, Tax Act, etc. — can handle returns for foreign residents. You most likely won’t qualify for any of the free e-filing options when using the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion or Foreign Tax Credit.

    Tax Return Questions? I’ve recently gotten the tax forms from 2 part time jobs i held for a brief part of early 2013. one was a popular hamburger franchise, and the other was a proper restaurant with tipped workers. coincidentally, i made around the same amount of money from both jobs. i have a few questions, such as how do i know how much money i will get if i file for my return? Obviously they all have different amounts, but there’s three boxes, “fed. income tax withheld”, “soc. sec. tax withheld”, and “medicare tax withheld”.

    How exactly can i find out specifically how much my total tax return will be if i file for it or even an estimate? preferably an easy way that’s quick and doesn’t require me to send my personal information to a thousand different people.

    Also,what’s the big deal about this april 15th deadline? what happens if i don’t file my taxes by then?

    • Curator says:

      You have to fill out the form to know if you’re getting a refund and how much it would be. You can enter it all on turbotax and get the amounts without having to pay them. Go to IRS.gov, they have a list of free online tax preparers for those with low income. But you won’t know till you fill it out. It all depends on how much was taken out, how much you made, and what credits and deductions you qualify for.

    How Can I File My Taxes Electronically Without Buying A Software? I want to file my taxes with the IRS for free but I don’t want to have to buy some software

    • Curator says:

      The IRS offers free online software if you make less than about $58,000/year. This includes free e-filing.

      You can choose a lot of tax software packages, including TurboTax and H&R Block, plus many other companies’ software.

      If you make more than $58K there is a way to do some of the tax for free, but you have to do your own calculations.

      Also, many states have free filing available on their own web sites.
