My long and lengthy tax journey is finally coming to a close! It’s been a little bit of a situation because my husband is still considered a resident of Massachusetts and I’m a resident of New York. I was hoping to do everything online for us because we don’t really have any other complications with our income (don’t own any property, etc.). Well, as I was starting to do our taxes on TurboTax, we couldn’t file jointly and then separately on our state returns.
Check out my MilPages story on how I came to find the process I used using this link.
Anyway, once I set-up my appointment with H&R Block, I had to wait for my tax professional to process our paperwork. This time of year gets really busy for them, so it took a couple of weeks for him to get our situation together. That’s why I’m so excited today! I just got done with my appointment and I’m ready to mail the state forms! I signed my husband’s tax return on his behalf and mine is all set! I have to digitally sign our federal return online and that’s it! It will feel sooooo good when I get all of it finalized completely!
Anyway, if you’re still trying to figure out how to file, you should definitely read what I have on MilPages. I wanted to be able to share my tax journey with everyone and hopefully it can help in some capacity for you!
