How do I know if I’m Not getting a return

Where are you seeing a "negative?"     If you are trying to figure out if you are getting an income tax refund-- look at your Form 1040.   If you are getting a refund it will be on line 35a.   If you owe tax due, the amount you need to pay will be on line 37.



Click on Tax Tools on the left side of the screen. Click on Tools. Click on View Tax Summary. Click on Preview my 1040 on the left side of the screen.
