Why do people, including the news media, emphasize the negative of every change?
Refunds this year may be smaller for some because less money was withheld from their paychecks thanks to Trump's reduction in taxes. Compare how much you received this January to same period for last year — instead of looking at the refund you receive, check line 15, Total Tax owed, on your IRS Form 1040.
Franklin D. Roosevelt initiated withholding money from paychecks to make it easier for people to pay their taxes. If you have a tendency to spend what you receive, or like to get larger refund checks, simply request that additional FITW be withheld from your monthly checks.
