Are you talking your week-by-week take-home being increased? Because I've been seeing a lot of rumblings by people complaining about how they've gone from having a refund to having to pay or from having to pay a little to having to pay a lot when they go to file. With the primary reason, from what I gathered from an article I read about this (ie: I skimmed it, therefore, I might be somewhat off), being that they got more take-home pay on a weekly basis due to how things were set up...and then, because they're the kind of idiot that thinks "MOAR TAKE-HOME = I WIN!!!!" and then stops thinking right after that thought, they're completely baffled by how the gubment is sinking their claws in a bit more at filing time.
You're correct. Repubs touting more take home pay (less refund) and dems (saw Kamala tweet) are complaining about less refund while ignoring more take home. I have a freaking cpa and barely understand taxes, so be skeptical when anyone talks about taxes.
