COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - If you are unemployed, but still owe the IRS, that's a tough pill to swallow on April 15th.
It may seem confusing, but IRS officials say there are other sources, besides a full time job, that factor into taxable income.
One example is withdrawals from a 401k. Plus, any unemployment collected over $2400 is still taxable.
Experts say to balance out the refund, focus on credits that may otherwise be unavailable with a higher income, like the earned income tax credit.
