Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello and thank you for using Just Answer,What exactly do you need to know?
Did you want an estimate from a tax expert?
Do you file single, have any dependents, are you a dependent?
SINGLE NO DEPENDANTS I AM NOT A DEPENDANT, IN THE PAST MY RETURNS HAVE BEEN $600-700 DOLLARS
What was your withholding amount?
I CANT BELIEVE THIS I DONT HAVE MY W2 WITH ME.....SOMEWHERE AROUND SHIT $2300 I THINK
Ok, one sec while I do some math please
MY INCOME WAS CLOSER TO 20,000$
If it was 10,000 then your calculations are correct. One sec
IF THE BREAK IS AT 20,000 I SHOULD SAY IT WAS JUST OVER 20
What do you mean "should I say" you have lost me now
I MADE OVER 20,000$ BUT LESS THAN 21 OR 22
Then you need to redo your return because if your wages from W2 (not a 1099MISC), single, no dependents and withholding at around 2300 would mean a taxable income of $10,250, and tax of $1106 which would mean you would have a refund of $1194
So go back and see what you entered for your box 1 amount from your W2
If you put $10,000 then the return is right
If you put 10000 as wages but no withholding then your return would say you owed around $24
WHERE DO YOU THINK I WENT WRONG AND IF I REDO AFTER FILING IS IT THEN AN AMENDMENT I HAVE NEVER DONE THAT BEFORE AGAIN MY REFUNDS IN THE PAST HAVE BEEN IN THE 600 RANGE LAST YEAR WAS THE MOST I HAVE EVER MADE I WORKED FOR THE SAME COMPANY AS IN 2011
Yes, if you did not prepare the return correctly, you will need to file an amended return to correct. Where you went wrong......assuming there is nothing else on your W2 that was counted as income and the only thing you had was a W2, you may have simply entered your numbers wrong or entered the boxes incorrectly. I would not have anyway of knowing to tell you the truth unless you can tell me exactly what was on the return line by line.
I UNDERSTAND THANKS IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW???? WHY THE BIG DIFF BETWEEN MAKING 10 AND MAKING OVER 20 THAT MAKES SUCH A GAP IN RETURNS???
The big difference was I calculated first without your withholding that is why I had to look at that amount. You will need to wait to mail your 1040X after you receive the refund form the original and it may take 12 weeks to process the amendment
It may take 12 weeks to process the amendment, you have to mail it (no e-file) and wait till the original is processed
The first time I calculated I did not have withholding, look at the W2 again and this time make sur eyou copy the info correctly
OH GREAT...ON THE TURBO TAX WHEN I PUT IN MY EIN EMPLOYER # XXXXX W2 WAS AUTOMATTLY DOWNLOADED AND TURBO TOOK THE INFO FROM THERE AND WITH TAXUSA (WHICH I DID NOT SEND) I GOT THE SAME RETURN AMOUNT AND THAT WAS WITH ME INPUTTING THE NUMBERS...BTW I AM NOT YELLING I WRITE IN CAPS ALL THE TIME HAVE FOR YEARS B4 TEXTING AND EMAIL IT IS JUST MY WAY....
