    The less you work,the less you get payed ,the more you get in your refund. Got it?

    As she works a lot less than you, her annual allowance was not earned.
    So she had overpaid on her tax on a much greater scale than yourself.

    More income more taxes. You cannot compare to other people without knowing their entire situation. EIC, Child Tax Credits, maybe she had more taxes withheld. Too many variables.

    No one can say without seeing the details of your return.

    What did you claim on your W4?

    If you claimed “2″, you should break close to even like you did.

    Remember, a tax refund is just you getting your own money back. To get a bigger refund at tax time, you have to pay in more throughout the year.

    The amount you get for your refund is only YOUR OWN MONEY that you’ve paid the IRS through the year. The fact that you got a small refund means that you got ALL of your pay in your paychecks every week, instead of having it taken away and held. Your friend who got a $ 500 refund would have had $ 10 too much taken out of each week’s pay, so she had to ask for all that money back again at the end of the year when she did her tax return. You didn’t do that. Good for you!
