My friend does our taxes for us, and they are done. We are getting a very nice refund, and I have big plans for that money. It is totally earmarked for me, we've discussed this, and he agreed to it. So they've been sitting here, for almost a week. I've left him several messages asking him to stop and sign them so I can send them in. He hasn't stopped and hasn't responded. In fact, it's been almost two weeks since I've heard a word from him. Would it be wrong for me to just go ahead and file them electronically? If we were still together I'd do that, but since we aren't together I'm not sure if I should do it without discussing it with him...

Thoughts? Opinions?

You'd be opening a can of worms by filing them w/o his "permission". I have a couple of ideas as to how to proceed. First, I prefer e-filing, myself. You get your refund a lot more quickly, especially if you have it direct deposited. You could send him an email saying something along the lines of , "Hey, I just realized you don't have to actually sign the return if I e-file." Then ask him to email you back his okay, thus creating the documentation all we single mamas are so fond of .

Or, rather than letting him stop by at his "convenience" get more proactive and give him a timeline for signing, maybe even make it easy by meeting him somewhere on his lunch hour. Plan a time and place rather than letting him act at his discretion.

I wouldn't advise that you file them without his permission, but I hope for your sake that you get a hold of him very soon. Good luck!
