My son started a new job last year and when he did his taxes didn't get much refund. He always got a good size refund. What does he need to do to get a larger refund?

If your son wants to give the government an interest free loan all year so that he can get a bigger refund at tax time, he can increase the amount of tax withheld from his wages.   A big refund based on withheld tax only means you gave the government the use of your money all year.  Some people choose to do that.
