The tax refund poll results are in. The question of the week was “Did you end up owing additional federal taxes this year, or did you get a refund?” and three-quartes of all respondents (74% to be exact) received a refund this year. Just keep in mind that a tax refund is little more than an interest free loan to the government. Thus, it might make sense for those of us with large(ish) refunds to adjust our withholding to avoid the same situation next year.
Be sure to check back next week for a brand new poll. And please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any ideas for poll questions that you’d like to see. I can’t promise that I’ll use your suggestion, but I’d love to hear from you.
