Remarkably not!
In the UK, the exercise of filing is to determine the small amount of tax that we need to pay to balance the account. We aspire to pay our tax as late as possible even if that means a big payment due in January
A fundamental difference between the UK and US income tax systems is that in the UK, we don't tend to overpay throughout the year and then get a rebate. Under our PAYE system, we generally pay the correct amount and don't file anything! Where we do self assessment, that usually precedes us sending a small payment, or very unusually getting a rebate.
I'm always bemused when I read how popular your countrymens' idea of an annual rebate cheque seems to be.
I'd be annoyed to discover that I'd given my government an interest free loan every every year.

We have a much more intricate tax code. Generally speaking, if a person has low/zero deductions/credits, then the tax withheld on his salary will be pretty close to actual tax owed. A person with the same salary that has, for instance, a large mortgage interest deduction, will generally get a sizable refund. Also, someone might have additional income like dividends and capital gains (everything is taxable in USA) that puts him in a higher tax bracket than someone who earns the same salary but had no other income.

So it’s not like you just take someone’s salary, multiply times 20%, and there’s his tax bill. If that were the case then there would be no reason to over/under withhold

I think my next move is to the Laughlin area. Winter there and travel in the summer.

No, Billy is an old guy he will fit right in. Might even be a good bingo game on a Friday night.

"How do you know if you're at cardiac risk when many traditional methods for accurately measuring heart health involve expensive or time-consuming procedures, or the oversight of medical professionals?"

So says the article. If you can't get up stairs of 60 steps in 90 seconds, you should see a physician.

I can't remember the last time that I walked up more than one flight of stairs. 60 stairs would probably kill me. I am thinking of selling my house because one flight of stairs is uncomfortable.

................................


no gambling at all is legal in Hawaii - no slots, no table games, no horses, no lotteries - nothing

the last time I was there they had blocked internet access to this site and other gambling forums that I visit

they no doubt have illegal gambling - I'm not going to go looking for that
