BS i didn't see any changes on my paycheck and I end up paying for the first time in my life.

wishinifishin517 says:

Fucking retards! You are not supposed to get a tax return. Have the right amount withheld and you won't pay and you wouldn't get a return. Why would you give the government money all year just to jump through hoops to get it back?

Luke Angelo says:

The little people like that little refund.

K Rod says:

The irs needs to be regulated. Every year they say I owe them money and then they lose the money I send. I know I’m not the only one. The irs is super hush hush about everything. They find all the money you make but can’t get you your money back ever.

Salvador Santillan says:

Every year I got back at least 500 back and this time I had to pay 422. I did NOT notice any difference in my paychecks, at all! I saw the usual in every paycheck and now it's time to pay 422 more dollars of my hard earned money. I did not vote for anyone and I think that only Trump supporters should have to be the ones to pay for this shit!

Nico L says:

SO I GOT DISCOUNTED LIKE 400 TWICE A MONTH FROM MY CHECKS WHICH MAKES $9,600 ANUALLY NOT TO MENTIONT ALL THE TAXES I PAY WHEN I BUY THINGS AND WHEN I WENT TO GET MY TAX RETURN I ONLY RECEIVE 2,000 THAT GETTING LEGALLY ROBBED SMH

Raymond Serpa says:

Too many people don't understand that a refund just means they withheld to much from your check!I claim all exemptions possible,so I get the money in my check.I'm not interested in giving the government an interest free loan!

adjwindu70 says:

I got 1.50 extra on my checks. Guess I should expect s lesser refund. Question; how is this tax change suppose to help me? I'm middle class making around 70k a year.

P Pryor says:

You lefties !!!need to go become righties!!! Stop looking out for the immigrants!!!!Trump 2020!!!!

M Franklyn says:

The Crime Boss has robbed the sheeple. Good for all those who drunk the chump Kool Aid!

A.R. Gentum says:

Who are the dumb mother fuckers complaining about "refunds?"
The new tax code was/is published in the Federal Registry.
People need to get a grip and study the tax code and their own finances.

More importantly; if anyone is so fucking retarded to think a tax refund is a "good" thing; is
delusional. If over withholding is the only way anyone can "save" money is equally retarded.

Don't worry, when shit goes bad and the bartender (AOC) takes charge; your new tax rate will be
over 30% on the first 25K and onward and upwards. LOL
AND a national sales tax of 20% all this for starters; just ask any sucker living in France how
good it is to live in a socialist state. Oh and $3 a gallon national gas tax; sound good?
Here the Feds collect about $.55 a gallon.

So, quit bitching about your tax refund, dee dee dee.

Fernando Santos says:

Donald Dump and his piece of shit supporters owe me $1,300.

red mercury says:

ok so their idea of a "tax cut" is "getting that extra little bit of spending power in your paycheck……" THATS NOT A FUCKING TAX CUT IF YOU HAVE TO PAY IT ALL BACK AT THE END OF THE YEAR FUCKING ASSHOLE!!! we have been played ONCE AGAIN by our government. #fuckeverybody

Yarelis Acosta says:

Thanks for all those who voted for Trump! 🤬

Andrew Long says:

No we watch our check when we live check to check. Not a cent more but paid more tax’s and got less of a refund.

Big Z says:

Tax scam so there saying my friend pulled in 33,000$ and paid over 7k in taxes and only received a total refund of 800. 7k is between 20-25%. 34% is contractor status.

zombie fartz says:

If you are a single white male with no kids, you get screwed hard, always have. Gotta pay for all the lazy people.
