Could someone satisfy my curiosity, please?
Fictionwise say "Since many of our US customers will be receiving tax refunds this week...."
Why does one receive a "tax refund"? The way that the British tax system works is that, unless you run your own business, or something like that, income tax is simply deducated automatically from your salary by your employer, so you automatically pay the right amount of tax.
How does it work in the US to result in so many "refunds" being given?
