Does a Federal refund tell you whether the person got a tax cut or tax increase?
Trick questions. Refunds don't have a mouth so they can't speak.
I got crushed last year. So I take the extension.
Can't say yet
I guess I don't know how to articulate this subject.
The answer is no. A federal tax refund, whether it increases this year or goes down this year, cannot possibly tell a person if they got a federal tax cut or a tax increase.
Because the tax cut or increase is based on how much you paid in federal taxes out of your paycheck, the deductions you have, your income, etc.
So the refund increase or refund decrease alone, means nothing.
People are complaining that they have to pay in more, or that they're not getting as much money back as they usually do. Well duh....you didn't pay in as much!
Exactly, so when you see leftists hyperventilating that "refunds are smaller this year!!!", they're exposing the fact that they are too stupid to understand a smaller tax burden necessarily carries a smaller refund.
You have to do the return and see what tax bracket you are in to know. I got to pay more this year and made the same as last.
Yes, we know all liberals paid more and all conservatives paid less. Just the opposite of ACA. With ACA, all conservatives paid more for health care and all liberals paid less.
The answer to the top post question is no. The refund has nothing to do with whether you pay more in federal tax or less in federal tax.
