How do tax refunds work in the US? I know hardly anyone that gets them in the UK. Do you guys pay tax differently or something?

Dumbasses don't realize that they're exempt from certain taxes and spend an entire year paying taxes they don't actually owe, then act like they're getting free money when the government gives it back. It's like forced saving for people who are too stupid to fill out tax forms properly.

My tax return is $66. Granted I only made like $1200 last year though.

Got 2k back on my refund. Holding onto it until the end of the month when I move into my new place. Should have about 5k saved in my account. I think I'll pay a big ass chunk of my student loans then put the rest into savings. Don't have any games I plan to buy although I make enough that I just buy what I want when it comes out. Already put my preorder in for type-0 to get the XV demo.

Once you have your first job you'll understand that what gets taken out of your check by the feds and state isn't exactly up to you to decide.

This right here is retarded.

>>283854658
Actually it is, unless you're letting someone else fill out your tax forms for you.
>>
>>283854472
yeah its fucking dope too

it cost me literally nothing to file federal and state

but be cautious I heard they were stopping the state fillings or something. might want to google it
>>
>>283854524
he seems to be implying that he's being overtaxed because of his level of income - which is BS

I know tax brackets exist retard, they just don't work the way some people think they do (it's not a fixed percentage of total income)
>>
>>283854784

But that's not at all what your earlier posted implied. Your analogy makes it sounds like you gave the government too much to begin with when you shouldn't have.
>>
>>283854472
TaxAct has always been free for federal returns.

My state doesn't have an income tax so it doesn't matter to me that TaxAct charges for state returns.

Losing's one job due to poor attendance is kind of retarded, yes.

>>
>>283854828

Nobody said it was a fixed percentage of total income. Before you start calling other's retard look at your own retarded assumptions, retard.
>>
>>283853228
When you make money they take an income tax out of that based on how much you make. You can take what are called allowances which reduce the amount the government takes from you. At the end of the year, if they have taken too much money they give that extra back as a tax return. A smart person would plan their allowances in such a way that you end up with little or no money in a return.
Getting a tax return is essentially giving an interest free loan to the government. Why do that??

If your taxes consist entirely of a '1040EZ' form and you still use turbo tax or pay someone else to do them for you you are literally stupid
>>
>>283854784
What the fuck are you talking about? Do you think they ask you every time you get paid how much you want taken out of your check or something?
>>
>>283855468
That's how it goes. I don't feel upset though: it was due to having to bum rides with coworkers who couldn't handle things like "be awake at 1 in the afternoon". Also, I was working at Walmart at the time. Nothing of value lost there.

Ask an Electronics clerk who didn't care about his job and had his will to live crushed by Walmart anything.

>>283854658
No it actually is. When you get a job you're able to choose your number of allowances. At 25% income tax a single allowance is worth about 3800 dollars of your taxable income. So if you do the math you could pick the allowances that give you the smallest non-negative return and in turn give you larger pay checks every month. A big return means you were retarded. Essentially paying for a stick of gum with a hundred dollar bill then pretending the 99 dollars you got back was free money.
>>
>>283855765
>i don't know what a w-4 is

unless you make a shitload of money, yes, you can determine (to an extent) how much is taken out of your checks each pay period
>>
>>283848916
None. You're paying too much in taxes.


Your first order of business is to go fix your W-2.
>>
>>283854943
But that's exactly how it is. You file your taxes at the beginning of the year and say how much is withheld. People are just dumb and don't withhold anything so they get that money abck at the end.
>>
>>283854472
yes, but they do everything to get you to upgrade. they stopped doing a lot of the autofilling using previous years' data to get you to pay
>>
>>283855687
are you going to explain how turbotax is stupid or just act special because you don't use it?
>>
>>283856004
>fix my statement of earnings

so you're going to modify an employer-provided form stating how much you earned? Enjoy prison you fucking retard
>>
>>283855765
There's a section right on your W-4 where you can request specific withholding amounts every pay period. Do you read them when filling them out?
>>

You only go to prison if you get caught.

>>283856163
Already have worked there in my life. Not a bad company, true, and the atmosphere was less "nobody gives a shit". Hours sucked though: I'd average 18 a week, if I was lucky. Don't have that luxury in this area though.

I just got 250 back, good enough to pay this months cell and car bill, plus gas. Hopefully a job comes through this week.

Going to prison for tax fraud is super lame. You'd immediately be marked for a total bitch unless you did everyone's taxes for them.

If you're going to prison it might as well be for a better reason, liked armed robbery or something.

>>
>>283856050

It's not stupid to use it if you have kids, own a business, or anything like that because you have much more complicated forms.

A 1040EZ is literally "Take the number from box 1, add it to the number from box 2" type basic math, its a waste of money to hire someone or buy a program to do it for you unless you're incredibly lazy or stupid

You're allowed to decide how you announce your taxes. They are 100% based on your final years income. Hourly employees w/ changing shifts don't know what they'll make.

You can set it so the government takes $0 out of each paycheck and at the end of the year you owe 100% of the taxes for the year. Or you can let the government take some money out of each paycheck and at the end of the year you either get back what they overcharged you or you have to pay the difference of what they undercharged you.
>>
>>283854520

Because everyone knows exactly how much money they'll make at the end of the year.
>>
>>283852312
It's this
>>283858550
You're so poor they give you back most of the money they taxed you cause you're poor as shit.
>>
>>283855873

People don't always know how much money they'll make. How hard of a concept is that to wrap your head around?

Or I work at an hourly rate and travel for a living. I have no idea if I'm going to the east coast or west coast or exactly how many hours I will work. I am guaranteed 40 a week but will get somewhere between 50-70 a week (not actually working but sitting in an airport or something). I am extremely good at math and the best estimate I can come up with is like a $6000 window.
