Module 12: Refund, Amount Due, and Recordkeeping
Taxpayers receive refunds when their total tax payments are greater than the total tax. Taxpayers receive refunds from the government as checks or as direct deposits to the taxpayers' bank accounts. Taxpayers must pay an amount due to the government when the total tax is greater than their total tax payments. Payments can be made by check, money order, credit card, or direct debit (for electronic filers only). Taxpayers need to keep good records to support all items on the tax return.
