Should You Get a Bigger Refund This Year?

3 Minute Read

Most of us realize that we spend a portion of our working day paying taxes. At tax time, millions discover they could have kept more of what they earned throughout the year … if they’d only known they were overpaying their taxes in the first place.

So, obviously, it’s difficult to know how much you’re supposed to pay, but it can be even more of a challenge to know how much you should get back. Should you get a bigger refund this year?

From One Baby Step to the Next

Rebecca M. recently discovered her income tax refund will be much larger than she expected.


Local experts you can trust.

Find an ELP

With the help of her tax professional, Rebecca increased her tax refund by $1,100. She worked with one of Dave’s Endorsed Local Providers (ELPs) to help her find all the deductions she was eligible for. She said that Sara, her tax ELP, found an error that three other tax people couldn’t figure out. The extra money means she and her family will be debt-free by the end of the year.

“Originally, it would have been one or two months into the new year before I could write the last check to Sallie Mae,” Rebecca said. “I can’t even begin to explain how thankful I am that we found Sara. This money makes the difference. I’m so excited!”

Service You Can Count On

Even though Melissa M. prefers to do her own taxes, she still wanted to work with a tax professional who could answer her questions and make sure she was on track with her return.

Her ELP, Allan, reviewed her forms and pointed out a few entries she should recheck. “When I made the changes he suggested, I saved $1,200!” she said.

After their consultation, Allan told Melissa she was doing a great job on her taxes. She was surprised that he didn’t try to convince her to have him complete her tax returns for her. Allan’s honesty and trustworthy advice won him a dedicated client.

“I’ll definitely be calling Allan again,” Melissa said.
