Taxes done

Did my taxes online with TurboTax again. Nice having all that data centrally stored for future retrieval. Very easy to do, and the bonus of Washington not having a state income tax is that I didn't have to file anything with the state. Very cool.

Took 10 days to get my refund with efile. I cashed out some mutual funds earlier this year to move to our IRAs, so I expected to owe (which is why I didn't start them until a couple weeks ago), but turns out that thousand-plus I spend on mortgage interest every month adds up to a nice deduction. This year I need to do a better job of tax planning so as not to give the government as big of a loan!
