According to official HBT guidelines, 500 posts is good for 1/2 of a boob.

I decided on using BrewPastor's 999 blonde doppelbock recipe. It looks pretty tasty. http://homebrewtalk.com/showpost.php...11&postcount=8

Doesn't the word 'refund' sort of infer that they are giving back what was orginally yours? I think this is your overpayment of taxes on money YOU earned, taken without your consent and likely without any interest paid, given back to you. Eventually. Provided you ask for it. Or they'd keep it.

They're going to seize your more of your money than they're entitled to next year too. It's like having a second wife.

And they get it interest free. That's why I always want to pay just a little bit, so I get their money interest free.

Now you're just nitpicking! Sure it's money I overpaid to the gubmint, but think of it this way; say every member of HBT take a dollar, and drop it into a huge boil kettle. It gets mixed up and then in a year we each get to take one dollar out of the kettle. Do you think you're going to get your exact same dollar back? No. We still get a dollar, but it's not the SAME dollar. So yes, you (yes you) bought it for me.

And that's your philosophication for today.

That's exactly what I was saying. And I agree. Ok, ETOJ-here's another philosiphication for ya: Let's say your neighbor runs into a bit of a bad patch financially, and needs money to pay his heat bill. You and another neighbor each contribute $50 to help him out. So he OWES you $50. A month later he pays you each back. You then use the $50 go buy some really good beer. Do you go up to the other neighbor and say "hey dude, thanks for the beer, I really appreciate it!"? I doubt it.


YOU bought the mill.

Unless of course he has children or only earned a little income last year. Then he would be eligible for credits such as the EIC, Child Tax Credit, and/or the childcare credit and those are paid by those that are not eligible for those credits.

I don't get refunds. Like it's been said before...it's money you overpaid the Gov't and gave them an interest-free loan on top of that.

I paid $166.00 Fed tax this year over my deductions and banked $30K!!!
