    I try not have more than a couple hundred at most, either way. It makes no fiscal sense to have large amounts withheld all year long, and then ‘be happy’ getting what was my money in the first place, returned to me. I can better use of those funds thru-out the year, than those miserable ingrates in government.

    Tax refund is basically giving the government an interest free loan. Better to have as small a refund as possible to keep the money in your pocket, keep those credit cards paid off and you are ahead. Even owing a small amount isnt going to kill you, just dont screw yourself owing thousands that you can pay on time and end up with fines/penalties.

    So you lost money? Or wrote everything off and on paper you made like barely above welfare wages and received $1k back in wealth redistribution?

    Cool beans dude I enjoyed paying $26k in federal taxes and getting back $13.00. Please try not to spend all my money in one place

    For sure. No taxes paid. AGI is teeny tiny.

    If you can live on peanuts, then you shall fill your pockets with gold and gems, not paper. Another good practice is to never let a stranger store your money (banks); it will only become theirs.

    Lastly, the country was founded on educated, land-owning business men and lawyers. Think and act like one, and the constraints of government become the means to elevation and enlightenment. If you have disdain for government, then you have succumbed to oppression by your own mental enslavement.

    Government are people. Those people have names. Most of those named souls have law degrees. If you hate government, then you hate law. If you hate law, then freesom will never shine on you.

    Indeed, your labor and hard work should not gain interest for those only trying to take more from you later.

    Our infrastructure is something worth paying for, but global dominance over Russia and China has taken precedence over long term success strategies?

    Right, right. No "politics" outside that little window provided for us. Even though everything in every section of this forum is tied to the argument of how to distribute the few resources we are permitted to consume... as plebians.
