TaxWatch: On Tax Day, here’s a tale of two returns — one nasty and one nice

In Montana, Chris Roane was frantically re-running the numbers once his accountant broke the news. “I thought, ‘Are you serious, we owe five figures?’”

In Washington, meanwhile, Alyssa Francis’ worries vanished, and were replaced with excitement. “Yay, I don’t have to pay anything!” She breathed a sigh of relief.

Roane, 35, is reeling in his summer vacation plans and saving money so he’ll never again get smacked with a $ 11,500 tax bill, especially after a $ 7,000 refund in 2018.

Francis, 28, is enjoying her brand new washer and dryer, and waiting for a video game with her roughly $ 2,000 refund, up $ 500 from last year.
