Many people incorrectly believe that an income tax return is some kind of surplus because Uncle Sam believes they’ve been good all year.  But in reality all income tax returns are is money you overpaid the government, while they just held onto it to return to you later interest-free.

The average citizen receives $3000 in tax returns.  Racks on racks in returns= money you could have been getting all year while you were struggling living check to check.  Pay close attention to your pay stubs and how much is getting taken out of each check. If the IRS is making it rain on you every year, it might be because you’re doing something wrong the other 9 months out of the year.
