In Finance

I have a couple of friends who loathe the idea of receiving a refund.  I thought they were crazy when I heard them talk about their desire to structure their taxes in a way where they wouldn’t receive a tax refund.  They believed that a tax refund was a big waste and meant they failed in properly setting up their taxes at the beginning of the year.
