    About the same for me, and FI is a little lower than last year (new tax bracket).  But it’s still a nice chunk of change!

    @soontobemrsm11:  You probably got credits because you do not make much money and you probably got a credit for your school fees and tuition.

     

    I get a good bit back because I claim two of my 3 children, my ex claims our oldest. However, I do not get back as much as I would if I worked a job where I paid in on what I make every pay period, I am self employeed. So I have to pay some in but come out good because of the credits.

    @soontobemrsm11:  that is great! You get a big cut for being in school, so it could be from that.

    Mine is literally HALF of what i expected boooooo. But at least I don’t have to pay.

    I was in a higher tax bracket this year and claimed 2 (as I claimed 1 last year) so I guess I know why its lower but stillllll.

    We’re going to get under $100 back I believe. We were planning on breaking even or paying so this was welcome news! We filed jointly and don’t have any kids.

    I was shocked when we got $7300 back this year! We both claim 0 at work so they take out the max amount in taxes so we usually get a couple thousand back. But with us both in school last year we got much more. Good thing since that’s honeymoon money!

    We haven’t done ours yet, but nothing has changed from last year to this year and we still get to claim our PMI insurance on our mortgage so I would expect somewhere around 4k.

    My company did a great job on my withholdings, but i have some capital loss carryforward and lifetime learning credit that will put me at about a $500 refund.  I shoot for breaking even, but I’m pretty satisfied.

    There isn’t an option for $1500-$2000, which is what mine would be.

    This was my last year filing as single!! Woohoo!

    We are paying 🙁  We bought a new house this year and took out money in stock options for part of the down payment. It’s already taxed, but I guess the greedy government wants more!  Lucky for my husband that we are married, if he was single, he’d owe 26k!

    filing jointly, no kids. As of now it’s shaping up to be $3500, but we are waiting for the forms from our investments to come in, so not sure about that yet.

    @soontobemrsm11:  Too soon to tell.  We don’t have all of our info yet.

    I got about $3,300 dollars deposited into my checking account last week. It was a wonderful thing to wake up to!
