holy crap, tax return is a bummer this year.

Holy shit! Did something change on the tax return stuff this year? Wife and I are getting WAY less than last year. It went from about 2500 back between the two of us last year to pretty much breaking even (couple hundred). I thought I had put the wrong numbers in the tax program! I ran it a bunch of different ways (single, married, married but filing single) and if we were filing single we would actually be having to pay a bit.

From what I understand none of the new tax stuff is in effect for returns so what happened? Neither of us made way more money or changed our exemptions last year.

Did you over spend on the ddp yoga this year?

Looks like ya'll fucked up doing your taxes.

 

Did you claim 'Snow Shovels' as a work expense?

Weird, I'm getting more back than ever this year. I did set it up that way though, and had more taxes taken out throughout the year.

Did you guys make more this year than normal? Pay in less maybe?

You should have a kid.....

Maybe you fucked it up last year?

Last year I ended up paying like 2500.... it had me very angry.  

 

Bougt a house and had a kid this year, so hopefully that changes 

Just compare w2 from last year to this year. Should see some obvious differences in tax deductions

Good god, you people are dumb.

 

This is a good thing. You should structure your withholding so you get very little back or owe a little.

 

When get money back all that means is that you over payed your taxes and gave the Feds an interest free loan.

 

If you under paid by $2,500 you’d owe that plus interest and penalties.

 

Getting a huge tax return is one of the dumbest financial moves you can make.

 

You should be happy that you finally got it right this year.

 

Hey, I have an idea...send me $3,000 and in a year I’ll send you back $3,000. Does that sound good to you?

This all day, why let the gov take $200 a month more than you owe.  

 

You're lucky.

Write off everything ........

Here we go...

lol.

Poor people be like: "Can't wait for that tax return! We gonna get that new X Box and go to Golden Corral!"

If you made the same money and didn't change your exemptions, not sure why it would be that different. Maybe your employer f'd up and changed your exemption/deduction info. Or you f'd up, but it sounds like you went over it a few times.

I’ve always got money back but it’s because my company taxes my commission checks at the highest rate. A few guys go tax exempt fora few months to avoid waiting to get it back at the end of the year.

I'm fine with giving the feds an interest free loan. I'm glad to be able to help!

People that have complete inability to save/manage their own money count on the government to do it for them.

Then we got the single moms. Like the lottery. Don't they get a "refund" on money they didn't even pay?
