Here are real questions we've heard from real people.
It's why we care!
"If I get paid $20,000 a year, is it at the beginning of the year, or at the end? How do I pay my bills if it's at the end?"
"If I work 2 jobs this year, do I have to file two tax returns?"
"What do you mean I owe $1,600? Do you mean that the government is going to take $1,600 away from my refund?"
