If you received a 2016 federal income tax refund, you essentially made an interest-free loan to the government. Rather than wait to receive your 2017 refund until you file your return in 2018, why not begin enjoying that money now by reducing your withholdings or estimated tax payments? It’s particularly important to review them, and adjust them if necessary, when you experience a major life event, such as a marriage, divorce, birth, adoption or job layoff.
