Taxes: Half Done

Between the replay of the Australian Open men's singles final and the Super Bowl yesterday, I did my income taxes. (My tax situation is pretty simple, although I came close to having enough fan-related expenses to justify itemizing deductions. If I'd known that, I would have kept better records of my driving; the travel to Denver alone would have been worthwhile, even at only 14 cents/mile.) Electronic filing is included with TurboTax, but only for the Federal return. I'm not going to pay a $20 e-filing fee for the state refund, especially as the state of California is so broke that the Controller has announced a delay in paying refunds. Why should I spend money to get the information to them sooner? OTOH, because paper returns have to be signed and Lisa is in Oregon, I won't be able to file the paper return until late this month when I go up to Oregon for a couple of weeks. Oh, well, it's not a lot of money, and who knows whether the state will ever pay it anyway?
