Exercise (20 points)

Based on the following data, would Ann and Carl Wilton receive a refund or owe additional taxes?

Adjusted gross income, $46,186
Itemized deductions, $11,420
Child care tax credit, $80
Federal income tax withheld, $4,784
Amount for personal exemptions, $6,800
Average tax rate on taxable income, 15%

Taxable income would be $27,966 ($46,186 - $11,420 - $6,800) times the average tax rate of 15 percent equals $4,195 less a tax credit of $80 gives a tax liability of $4,115. When compared to federal tax withheld ($4,784), the result is a refund of $669.
