MY tax refun is showing so low
i was employed and filed last year my income was $16,734.00, total axes paid ( state federal, medic, local,soc sec) were about $3,900, i got close to a $3000 refund, i did simple refund, i have unemployed spouse we filled jointly
this year i made a total of $51,000 and paid $11,000
in total taxes (state ,local, federeal, social, medic for both w2's)::... my spouse is still un employed same as last year but when i tried to do efile its showing i am going to get only $2000 return, and one even said it was going to be less that $1000
i dont know whats going on, can someone help me
all my activities in both years were the same, i live in the same house (renting) and was filing a standard return on both cases.. i dont have children either and no one can claim either me or my wife as their dependents..
teh situation is almost identical from last year and this year the only difference is that i was absorbed from my temp job to my company thus the 2 W2's and the increased amount of both the income and the taxes
