I e-filed my federal and South Carolina state taxes last Thursday, no problem. My North Carolina taxes got kicked back. Three times. I spent several hours today trying to figure out what was wrong, but couldn’t. Ran up to the nearest H&R Block office, where I was told to call the 800 number. Called the 800 number, spent an hour on the phone with a woman who walked through the entries I made, then couldn’t figure out what the problem was. “Sorry,” she said. I imagine she shrugged her shoulders.
The North Carolina tax forms, especially if you have a tax credit for paying taxes to another state, are the most f-ed up forms I have ever dealt with. Others agree with me.
At the end of the day, I filed for an extension. And I’m not touching them again for at least a week.
