"I did my taxes in February. I like to get them done comfortably before putting in my property tax so I can get my refund."
Paul Cunningham, Mountain View
"I finished my taxes this past January or so, and I like to save my refund."
William Ware, Mountain View
"I usually wait 'till the last minute, do an extension, and do them in October, so I do it really late. I usually end up owing money because I own my own business."
Mark Elam, Santa Clara
"I get the taxes done as soon as possible, regardless. And I normally don't have to owe, so I get that money back real quick. "
Bradley McKinney, San Francisco
"We got our income taxes done early this year, and we owed a lot of money so we won't be splurging with a refund. But we got money from the state, which I never quite understand because we always owe money to the feds and get money back from the state."
Joel Klein, Belmont
