Comments: Death & ...

I hear you. We are generally happy if we "break even". Or if we do get money back, it is as little as possible. *I* want to have *my* money - not "loan" it to Uncle Sam...

I think they should change tax day to the filer's birthday. That would lighten the crush and decrease the need for the world's largest computer.

I've also noticed that if what you owe takes a big jump from one year to the next, they make you pay a penalty for not paying it sooner.

In other words, you have to pay THEM interest on the interest-free loan you DIDN'T give them :-/

Tax refunds have been a way of preparing the American people for planning ahead. Example: My refund will offset my gasoline bill, making it seem like I get three months of free gas - like I planned it (gas bill) in advance. Or: My gas bill seems like I'm only paying $1.98 per gallon - Woohoo!
