    We did this too for years. And I agree that it was at least a way to have a trip fund I could not rob. However - one year I dropped the refund into our regular savings account and by the time the trip came $1000 had disappeared:rolleyes1.

    THEN as the kids have grown up that refund has dropped. It was tied to having 4 kids. I just hope to get a little back this year to help out. I figure after next year we will not get anything unless I have them withhold more:sad2:.

    We have no kids, use turbo tax and ALWAYS get something back, some years it has been as little as $200 from the Federal and $200 from the state.

    The past few years it has been more since DW is now a full time student in a 4 year degree program. But that won't last much longer.

    I don't blame ya for being proud of your big refund. :P

    I personally, would rather get a refund (no matter how large or small) than have to pay MORE come tax time. Sure, the ultimate goal (or so I hear) is to try and break even (get back very little or pay very little) but in this day and age (and economy) it can be tough.
