Thats also happened to my husband and myself. Were two income, no kids and no home interest to deduct. Both our employers take out the maximum withholding and we still had to pay. Even with my school deductions and medical deductions (i'm diabetic), we paid almost $1000. We arent able to buy a house yet, and I refuse to have children just for a deduction (haha). What else can we do? We both contribute to 401ks pretax and have all our earmarked medical money taken out pretax.
