I just finished doing my taxes today. Thanks to doing a UROP this past summer, rather than a job at a company, I owed... exactly zero. That's right - I'm getting back ALL of my withholdings. You should not read from this "I should get a UROP to avoid paying taxes". You should instead read "Wow, UROP pay sucks".

(Insert diatribe about how MIT should pay its UROPs at a wage equivalent to what their skills would be worth elsewhere.)

This summer, I'm hopefully going to work part-time and spend the month of July traveling around Germany. More about that later.

Heh. You don't have to be paid crap in order to get a lot back, you just need deductions. I got a federal refund of over $1K this year, and I made pretty reasonable money in 2009.
