So I just don't know how you can be penalized for that when someone like me is not. That just doesn't make any sense to me. and i had H & R block do my stuff so it would be on them if they screwed it up ever.
Well, when I first put $300 and e-filed it I was getting $1264 back. The IRS rejected it because the amount wasn't right, so I went back and put the correct amount which was $600 and it dropped my return down to $962. I re-submitted it and it was accepted. It sucks because I paid in over $4,000 in federal taxes. I don't understand how I am getting penalized either. It really has me pissed off though.
