A touch of writer's cramp

My federal income tax refund was direct deposited on Saturday! Here with the sequester I was expecting to have to wait forever but no, I got it in less than three weeks. I spent the afternoon today writing checks -- I made an extra mortgage payment, paid down my credit card debt and put some aside for my mom's grave marker. I have felt very bad about her being in an unmarked grave, and with this refund I won't have to wait for the whole estate/mortgage thing to be settled before I can take care of that for her.

I see this a lot on cases on Judge Judy, were people are waiting for their income tax refund. How does it work.

Here in the Uk/Ireland, you only get a refund if you have over paid via your work contributions, and it would only ever be a couple of hundred bucks.
