Do you realize that the "return", or "refund" really is *your money*, that you've let Uncle Sam use for the year, interest free?? It's not like the government is sending you money from some other source.Folks who get a "big return" have paid too much in taxes over the year, and then the government returns their money.Sounds like your husband has figured out how to send just what is needed to meet your tax obligations, and only a bit more at tax time. This means that the money others are sending you are keeping in your pocket, and using to meet your needs.There may be a lot of reasons why you have to pay more this year -- not enough withheld; you made substantially more than last year; you've got income from some other sources; you have fewer deductions.But it's fiscally smart to try to figure out your tax situation so that you *don't* get a refund, or at least only get a very small refund.
