Just another mystery.....

I was delighted to see my income tax refund was deposited into my bank account today.  However, I do wonder about something.

How is it that my submission was basically the same as last year's....I made the same amount of money and deductions were the same BUT...........

My refund was less by more than 110% for federal and for state it was about 100% less than last year's refunds.  My tax preparer is the same one I've used for 35 years and she's an expert at what she does.

I think I may have to give her a phone call and see if she has an answer for me but I have a feeling that the picture depicts it all. I suspect that once again us taxpayers have been screwed.  At this point I'm just glad I was able to score a refund at all.  sigh

Terry does ours and I believe it was close to what we got back last year. Like you, our $$ or life has not changed any either. I think I would be asking questions too.

UGH! That seems like an awefully big drop! Ours came back pretty much like last year. Your tax prep lady should definitely be able to explain. Let us know what you find out!

Val, at our age the only way we're going to get screwed is by the guvment.

Lucky to get anything back. Since I am retired now it looks like it all washes out and I get nothing back and owe nothing. Tell me how that happens?
