  • go to and it has tax calculators on there where you can input certain information and get your estimated refund. Mine was only off by $40.

  • You complete the return, and you see how much you are getting back or how much you owe.

    Why are you happy that the government used your money and did not pay you interest? Are you concerned about having to pay a penalty for overpayment?

  • Go to turbo tax it is ONLY an estimate DONT take it 100%
    We used the turbo tax thing and it was wrong.
