US tax returns 2006

We still had time, until April 15th, to do our first tax return in the USA. medium_tax2006.jpgBut with the extra complication of international income, big moving expenses involved, and Tom being self-employed, we figured it'd be better to have some extra time and do it early.

We got professional help from a very nice lady at H&R Block. Our paperwork fills 17 pages now, and - like we expected - we still have to come up with a lot of money for Tom's federal tax. For 2007 he'll have to pay estimated tax every three months, for being self-employed.

Taxes in the USA are definitely more complicated than in Germany, but you end up paying less, even with federal and state and county taxes added up.
