Got an Answer?
I do it every year and we pay for a little overseas family holiday with it 😊 I usually get an 8k return
When I was younger I was working two jobs and couldnt save a milky way bar in the fridge. I was bloody hopeless. I forgot to tick the tax three threshold box for my main job so received about $15,000 back one year. I actually opened an online business with it (before every man and his dog with a computer did) and then I sold that business for $800,000 in 2015 so it was probably the best mistake I've ever made. I'd never have saved that much otherwise, of course your money would be better in high interest savings but if you're terrible at saving go for it.
We tried and backfired on us spectacularly. I guess it would only work if you got the same pay each week, not a good idea if you eb and flow.
Did it fail due to not getting tax back or due to income you received being greatly reduced
Did you do your tax online? I once did mine online, said I owed $7000, cancelled that and went into accountant, only owed $400!!
