I know people expecting $10,000+ and they don't even work... Or if they do they don't make crap or much more than I do... I'm not complaining or jealous I'm seriously just curious... Anybody know?

Next year I will be getting a large tax return. Why, because my bonuses at my new job are taxed at 48% all year long. The company gets a tax break and the government gets to use my money as an interest free loan. Then come tax time its just income on my W-2 and my tax liability is not that high.
Other get it because they get all their money back at the end of the year and EIC.

The most hubbs and I ever got back together was around 10k combined.....we had a combined six figure salary and also took a lot of credits that year, including homebuyer, education credits, energy credits and some more.  That was the exception to the rule, and in a usual tax year I wouldn't expect to get more tha $1-2k back....and we have kids and a mortgage.

because they go to places like H&R Block who told them they'll get them the maximum possible refund.
