Has anyone gotten more back on their taxes than they expected?

When we had our taxes done we were told one amount but when we picked up the check it was almost $1,000 more!!!

  • Don't tell anyone that!  LOL!  The IRS says on it's website that you don't cash the check until you speak with them if the check is more than what you expected!

  • I think we also had to pay in more than expected. I started a job as an independent contractor and taxes get a wee bit pricey when you're self employed.
