Under which circumstance might you receive a tax refund from the IRS?

Answer: The IRS can issue a refund if the amount of credits and payments related to your tax in the prior taxation period exceeds the current tax you owe the state. Explanation: The IRS issues a tax refund. This is where the taxpayer receives any money that was not paid to the federal or state governments. This happens when an individual doesn't know enough about taxation to overpay the government. The result is an interest-free loan to the country or state. There are many reasons why taxes can be overpaid. Most regular employees overpay their taxes because they file the Form W-4 incorrectly and late, which can lead to discrepancies in the system. Alternately, an individual may not have taken into account deductible tax credits that are associated with a change in social status. This could be minimal income tax credits, housing credit, or the birth of a child which makes them eligible for Child Tax credit. You can deduct up to 2,000 dollars from your taxes, but it is not refundable. Only 1,400 dollars are allowed. Other credit may not be refunded. Self-employed people are usually eligible for a tax refund from IRS if their estimations or deductions are incorrect. The IRS issues tax refunds in many forms. The IRS can issue tax refunds in a variety of forms, including personal checks, savings bonds and direct deposits. Once the tax return is filed, these funds are transferred to the taxpayer. This process can take up to three weeks. The IRS may penalize you if you use the tax refund procedure too often.
