It is not patriotic to lend Uncle Sam money interest free, it s laziness or just not thinking. I would rather owe $10,00 than get a return of $500,00. I resent the fact that I must have a payroll deduction from my paycheck so the government can enjoy the fruits of my labor before I do. They take my money from me before my income tax is due. If the government can take my money, I should be able to have the government as a deduction. I do not understand the mentality of over paying income tax and them looking forward to getting your own money back as though it was some kind of reward! If you get a $2000.00 refund, it means you lost the opportunity to draw interest on that $2000.00.
When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
