Are you wondering how much money you’ll get back on income tax this year? Are bills piling up, or are you thinking about a spring vacation to a warm beach?
Whether you use income tax refund money to pay bills or go on a vacation, you have the opportunity to know how much money that will be today. By estimating your taxes, you can project the amount you will receive at tax time.
By tax estimating you can assess your income up to today, project the amount you expect to make prior to tax time, and give you a reasonable estimate of what your tax debt and possible refund will be.
Are you worried that you are lending the government money that you could be collecting interest on? If you are getting a large refund each year, you are essentially extending the government a no interest loan. They are using your money for much of the year and then repaying you with no interest!
If you owe the government money at tax time they will charge you interest if you can’t pay it all at once. This hardly seems fair! Stay ahead of the game by putting your weekly tax contribution into a guaranteed savings plan until tax time, this way you collect the interest, not the government.
A tax estimator, calculator program can help you decide how much you can put into interest earning savings each week and still meet you tax obligation at tax time.
Are you having trouble paying your household bills and getting a big refund at the end of the year? Tax estimating can help you better predict how much you need to contribute to your tax obligation in each paycheck. Perhaps you are paying too much. Tax estimating can help you decide if you are contributing too little or too much. Wouldn’t it be better to have that money when you need it, then to wait until tax time?
Tax estimation can be your right hand man, assisting you to make fiscally sound decisions about your money. You can make wise decisions about when and how Uncle Sam gets his money. You can be in the driver’s seat!
