I was wondering if people are getting thier taxes back fast this year. I filed yesterday and they said they are seeing them come back as fast as 1 week.

I think mine took about 9 days. Whoopee a big 300.00...considering i pay in 1k per month. The joys of owning your own business.....however....i had an idea, probably wouldn't work but i would try it if i was some of the people that get like $10k lump sum...anyway get 3-4 of you together and buy property together...house on lot and rent it out. Split the profits, the next year do the same...

I seriously doubt I will get much of anything back & have my fingers crossed that I don't have to pay. If I'm so lucky to get any of my pre-paid $$$ back the. I will save it to pay TAXES! We are being taxed to death. It is so unfair for workers to keep on keeping up the growing population of non-workers.

Any ideas on foreign paradises where one can live comfortably?

Yeah, I paid out the wazoo and I'll still have to pay, income AND property taxes. I'm surprised they can get anymore out my wazoo, since they're giving it to me up the wazoo (without Vaseline!)

I was just trying to see a way for people getting a substantial amount of refund could either alone or collectively make that money do some good.....

Take it from another man who has been there. Not in this town. Eventually, your property will be damaged, and you will get beat out of rent. The lower the price of the house, the lower the rent, the lower the quality of the tenant. The higher the price of the house, the lower the return on investment, and the tenant may still be no good. Either way, you won't make money.

Most people who rent in Greeneville cannot afford to own. There isn't a large transient class of young professionals looking to rent a house in Greeneville. The prospective tenants often do not have enough money for the first month's rent, a security deposit, and a Light & Power deposit. Forget trying to get all that and the last month's rent. They rarely pay the rent for the month in which they vacate. I agree with Willie. Don't do it.

There are good people here, just not as many as you would hope for. My experience is that out of 15 applicants for a rental, you find one good one. That is probably about what employers get if they advertise a job opening. Let the employers chime in.
