Lets put this as simple as possible. If you are not writing a check on April 15th then you messed up!!!!! ( I have a few clients that have changed - one actually last year came $20 from owing a penalty- my hero).

Op ask your tax lady how to change your with holdings to the correct amount. Then bank the difference every paycheck. At the end of the year you will have your refund PLUS interest BEFORE you do your taxes.
I'm going to put this as simple as possible.... MOST people don't live on a budget. Money left over (if any) after paying the bills is spent as discretionary income. If there is none left over, they will use CCs as their discretionary income.
