IRS Refund and Tax Rebates

Each year when we complete our tax return we often hope that the IRS will work with our form and discover that we have over paid and are due an IRS refund. Many people eagerly anticipate their IRS refund as it is enough for them to pay of a credit card bill or other debt. Others buy something such as furniture or they take a vacation with their refund. It really depends on how much money you end up getting back.

It is very important to be honest when it comes to filing your taxes, althought the temptation may be large to adjust small items on your form. It really is not worth the trouble and trauma of an audit. You may want to be able to get a huge chunk of money back but if you are found to have incorrectly submitted your return you will be paying back that refund plus interest. In addition the IRS can tack on huge penalties and you can even be facing jail time if they can show you outright lied on your taxes in order to get more money out of them.

There are quite a few individuals in our society that feel that the way the IRS does refunds isn’t right. It seems like the middle class continue to struggle to get a very modest refund. While those that barely work are entitled to huge refund checks annually. All they have to do is work a short span of time such as a seasonal job around the holidays and they will be able to get thousands of dollars back on their return. It is often the case that they get refunds for all of their taxes as they are falling below the cut off point, for people who work all year round and do not get a refund this can be frustrating.
