You may not be kidding, but you are incorrect. The system of deducting from every paycheck developed as a convenience and because the typical overages to the Fed constitute a huge annual loan to them, which they love. No one is actually required by the Fed to do so and many pay all their tax on April 15th, particularly if their tax bill is large.
