First year being on H1-B for a full tax year and curious, do we typically get a refund or owe? Under the most general of circumstances, as obviously people could have contributed more to 401K, etc.

I owed last year, but wondering if that was just because I was on F1 for 9 months of the year, or if that will be the trend for the duration of H1-B

Depends on what withholdings you declare. If it's too high, you will owe and if it's low, then you will get a refund

Maybe off-topic, but I’ve got a question related to taxes and withholding. 2020 was the first year that both me and my wife made full salaries in our high-paying jobs (she’s a pharmacist, I’m in consulting). We don’t do anything out of the ordinary to reduce our taxes, we just put ~ 6% each towards our 401k’s. No house or kids so our other deductions are limited. Just started doing taxes and got a shock that we owe big. Any others in this situation? Do you just withhold a ton extra on W4?
