    I don't understand why you should be happy? It's your money and if you're getting a fat refund, you obviously paid in too much during the year. Iwould be pissed actually. Here I am lending the govt my money for an entire year and I get it back with ZERO interest.

    And how many of these people actually bothered to look at their returns to see if it was done properly?

    Your sister must have a very limited knowlege of how taxes and tax returns work. That ain't "free" money. That is HER money thatthe gov't been borrowing interest free for the last year. Unless I am outright cheatin on my taxes, I don't want to see a huge tax return when I file. That just means I been gettin robbed all year long. Hell I might as well park that in an ING account and make my 1% interest rather than let the gov'tkeep it for no interest.

    Basically. It helps for the people that blow money like its going out of style. Now granted, most likely they'll blow straight through thereturn as well. But it does help people behind on bills, making a large purchase, so on and so forth. As for myself, my commission checks get cut in halfbecause of taxes, but the taxes taken away from my salary I have no clue what I would have spent that on. Getting all/most/some of it back at one time helpsme save. Every year I put most of it away and maybe treat myself to something.

    I like having that big chunk of cushion in my bank after the holidays, I can relax, and maybe take a vacation.

    Why not just set up an online savings account every month and set up an automatic transfer the same time each month? My paychecks get direct deposited once amonth on the 15th and I have an auto-draw setup to hit on the 20th of each month. I never see the money so I never miss it, and my savings account can accruethe paltry 1.2% interest or whatever, but hell... its better than the gov't taking my money and using it interest free. You dont even have to log-in or doanything once its setup. Runs automatically until you change things up.

    I do have something similar but the point I was trying to make is, I'm grateful to get it back. Unlike money thats taxed when we makepurchases. I paid almost $3k in taxes on my last car alone. Interest or no interest, Id like to see that money again.

    But you dont really know how much money youre giving to the GOV at the time, so you really dont miss it or think about it... so getting that much back at theend of the year feels good, cuz it just feels extra

    OP straight leeching off his family smh.

    On another note, I'm looking forward to tax season this year because my wife and I bought our first home this year . . . looking forward to that $8kcredit. We're gonna finish paying off our kitchen appliances (house was really outdated when we bought it - had the original 1960 kitchen) before theno-interest period expires, maybe put in a modest terrace/deck in the back yard, and put the rest away.

    Then why not flip the tables. Take more withholdings and keep as much of that money as you can. Put away X amount each month to a savingsaccount or CD that you will have access to before taxes are due. Since you withheld so much, you will owe taxes so you pay it with the money you saved (andaccrued interest on). In effect, you are then turning the tables and "borrowing" from the govt interest free
