I've lucked out the last few years: haven't had to pay a lot, but OTOH I haven't received any big refunds either.
Just wondering who here files right away in order to spend your refund? Who waits until the last second? Anyone here drive it your return up to the Post Office at 11:30pm on 4/15??
Sounds like you have your witholdings figured just about right. You don't want to get a big refund (because you just loaned your money to the government without getting any interest for it). OTOH if have too little witheld you might get forced into quarterly payments and you most definatley want to avoid that.
But as others have posted, if I am getting a refund the taxes go in as early as possible. If I owe, they are sent out at the last minute.

I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
