Mathematically, you are correct Bodolza. Practically, without massively overpaying, it is pretty meaningless. Unless you are desperate to save every penny.

You do realize you're giving the government the exact same amount of money whether or not you get a refund, right? I would rather have the $2K in my pocket for the year to do with what I wanted. I don't know what your personal finances look like, but I can say that with interest rates at 5%, I've made over $1K of real money this past year just by holding onto as much taxes as I can until required to pay. It's easily worth the extra 30 minutes a year I have to take to figure out my withholdings.

Second year paying no federal taxes thanks to credits from my solar installation. Down to a $950 credit for next year.

That means you're doing it wrong. The ideal situation is to owe as much as you can without hitting the underpayment penalty. Otherwise the guvment is collecting interest on that money instead of you.

Can confirm.... It's pretty cool. I've had the opportunity to stand near the operating HFIR reactor at ORNL and several of the storage pools at INL. Water makes a good shield....
