After orginally thinking I was only getting $1,450 back, I was going to sock it away for summer courses....

 

BUT, after having problems with TurboTax, I went to HR Block and the person there said I was supposed to get $2,400 back! Plus an additional $1,000 after they did a second-look on last year's return.

 

So I'm going to pay off my credit cards AND put some away for summer courses AND have some left over for savings! Very happy right now!

Wow, so the 2nd look thing really works???  I am debating having someone look at my taxes rather than just doing it myself.  I feel like I have a pretty straight-forward return, but do you mind asking how complicated your financial situation is?  I am wondering if someone who has no income/losses outside of what is reported in W-2 (and meager interest statements for savings accounts) and no mortgage would benefit from paying for an actual preparer.
