    We got back 30 and usually get much more and our withhold remains the same. I wonít blame trump because we had less items to deduct this year. If we had used the standard deduction we would have paid a 100. However. TurboTax cost 85.

    Does financial illiteracy have a liberal bias?

    I doubt it, but then again I can't explain the liberal tendency to believe in free stuff from the government, so maybe.

    No we canít have nice things because we give a massive tax cut to the rich and corporations and a petite tax cut to some of the middle class.

    Maybe. Maybe not. But fiscal irresponsibility seems to have a conservative bias.

    That's my biggest disappointment with this generation of Republicans, trying to emulate Democrats hoping maybe they'll stop being so mean.

    I had to send $2,500. I took $10,000 out of a IRA for the first time. I did not have anything withheld from it and since I pay around 23% in taxes It meant I was close except for that. I paid about the same but my income was a little higher.

    ill start getting SS this year, not sure how that will effect things. I’ll probably need to up my quarterly payments.

    Also I didn’t have as many deductions this year. I still itemized as we were over the $24,000 standard deduction, but not by much. My AGI was about $13,000 higher.

    I made out well. I was poor and then not poor, that's why. So I earned almost nothing but put some into IRAs when I finally had some work (you can until today for 2018), and from pay they withheld as if I had earned that all year, and from unemployment I had them withhold even though I earned so little I didn't actually owe it.

    And when you earn almost nothing, you don't pay that much and with overwithholding as well ... Eh but I don't think I entirely escaped taxes though: noone does! But the state doesn't even tax unemployment.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    If thatís your only disappointment you havenít been paying attention.
