Tax Refund: What Are You Going To Spend It On?

So it turns out that the missus and I will be getting a larger-than-expected refund this year (total, federal and state) - the biggest refund we've ever had and an indication that I need to get a new tax man as he clearly figured my estimated payments wrong for the year (although I'd rather pay too much than too little). The state refund hit the checking account today, so hopefully federal won't be too far behind...

The wife has been wanting a new car for a while, so this will make up a nice chunk of the down payment.

Who out there is getting a refund this year and what are you spending/saving/investing plans for it?

I got mine in early February or so, a whopping €108. Big grin I spent it on two very nice days in Hamburg.

When I get one, I'll tell you. This year, I'm shelling out more to the taxman (why they need more from me, I'll never know.. I only made pretty much the same I made last year)..

We sent 1/3 to the retirement fund, 1/3 to the mortgage, and 1/3 to charitable giving. Next year I will once again try and break even, no refunds, but no paying in either.

This year will be the first year I will be owing money to the Feds. I'll get a refund from the State of NM, but only $5, so I think I'll go ahead and get that ream of paper for my printer I've had my eye on lately.  Wink

I've never owed to the feds, but I owed $70 to the state last year. My father-in-law never calculates his tax right and ends up owing to both fed and state every year.

Well considering that after getting my refund from the Feds, I've got to turn right around and give nearly all of it to the State, not a thing. You really can't buy much for $1 these days. Actually coming out practically even is where you really want to be come tax time since a refund is really nothing more than money you loaned the gov't.

I owe $100 bucks to the Feds and this is my 2nd year ever filing. One reason I'm not so keen of having education sticks in my name, but not able to access the money until im 21

State and Federal refund paid for a week at Disney World and a new 56" Samsung DLP. Not a bad way to spend it at all...
