My wife and I owed $57 dollars last year... pretty good.

This year we got back about $750... it was unexpected but a nice little chunk of $$ to go towards the down payment of our new car.

I believe if you do not recieve it by a certain date you can seek legal recourse.

You should be happy with a $37 refund. You only get a refund if more is withheld that you owe. Why would you want the gov to hold YOUR money all year then give it back to you 3 months after you file your taxes?

lousy financial planning

ya know a bank would pay you 3.5% (avg cd rate) to hold your money; the govt gives you nothing. adjust your withholding & invest the diff.

I didn't do to bad either, I only owe 16k the irs

I agree myself, I couldn't believe the number I was getting back. If I was responsible enough to save it, I wouldn't pay ANY taxes during the year, but I added 2 dependents out of the 3 I can claim to my W2 to get it cut down.

Auto draft it from your checking or check if your benefits provider through your employer can set up an account. Plenty of options to make it seemless as it is already happening but with some kind of return which you could roll over into another investment every year. This way you never touch the money as well but end up making some in the long run for youerself. Properly done, this will add up in the long run.

Never thought about that, actually a good idea.
