You got this big overpayment, and you probably figured your 2008 deposits each based on 1/4 of your original figured 2007 taxes, so you're more overpaid than you think.

Actually, no. I figured our 2008 payments based on our actual 2008 income. Our income comes entirely from investments and is highly variable. So far 2008's income is less than 2/3 of that of 2007 at this time last year. Which is not a bad thing, since almost all of the variability comes from cap gains that are reinvested and are not needed for spending.
