Is it a good idea to over-withhold in order to get a Refund each year? Or should we adjust our Withholding so that our tax bill/refund is closer to $0?

In order to receive that huge refund you have given the IRS a tax free loan. I believe it more Foolish to have the money and owe them a little. You could have been adding some monies to that IRA all year long.
