  • Wow anon. Sound like you need to back off on the withholding! It's actually better to owe the government. It's like getting an interest free loan. If you get money back, you in essence missed out on earning interest on the money.

  • Last year we got 7 and the year before that we got 6. This year we are getting almost 9500 but that is only because my husband got a $36,000 re-enlistment bonus at the end of '08 and they took $9,000 out of it for taxes.
