So I’m probably the only one on the planet, but I actually try to NOT get a huge tax return.
I have a problem with letting the government use MY money all year. They make interest off of it and/or spend it really unwisely. I don’t like that.
AND…I can use that money in my paycheck. I can spend it wisely (most of the time :S ) and put it in MY piggy bank to earn interests, etc.
This philosophy makes me sound ultra-conservative and more and more like my father. But oh well!
That leaves me at the end of this tax year getting 65$ back from the federal government.
It is a little sad when everyone else is getting big checks deposited into their accounts, but I remind myself that I’ve been able to do fun stuff like pay for Crossfit w/ my extra dollars in my paycheck. 🙂
