This is why you should pay less taxes through the year and owe them at the end of the year. My wife and I pay in less than we owe, keep the money in the bank, draw some interest on it and pay in at the end of the year. They can't delay returning what they don't have!! PS We use HR Block at the end of the year to figure what we owe
Sending the IRS $4,000 more each year than you owe? Incredible.
Hey, they gave me a lot of trouble this year over a much smaller refund. They said they had no record of my first filing. So essentially, they used the "lost in the mail" excuse on something that I submitted online.
+Kate Childers I meant don't pay in extra so you'll get back a refund at the end of the year. Pay in less, put it in the bank to earn some interest then settle up at the end of the year with the IRS. Nothing illegal in that. My wife and I have done it for 42yrs. every year since we been married.
