They say the only certainties in life are death and taxes, or something like that.
But what about your tax refund?
Every year, from January to April 15th, millions of American tax payers are reminded that not only is Uncle Sam entitled to a hefty chunk of their pay, but sometimes has been accidentally overpaid.
Some years, depending on how much you’ve withheld from your paycheck, tax credits and deductions, you may be looking at a few thousand dollars in tax refunds.
However, if you don’t receive a refund, it probably means you’ve done a good job planning, and that you haven’t overpaid the government!
Finding out you aren’t getting a refund is certainly better than finding out that you OWE money come April 15th, but maybe a bit disappointing when you hear friends and colleagues talking about their incoming tax refund.
