Taxes: What will you be doing with your refund? - Page 2

post #31 of 45
My answer is multiple choice:

Pay off some debt
Invest in more stock now that the prices are low
Stock up on kitty litter and cat food
Put some in the bank for emergencies
Take a couple of my friends and their two kids out to a nice dinner
Finally go get some eyeglasses made (I'm getting more and more nearsighted - need glasses for driving and watching TV, just haven't actually gotten them yet!)

I think that covers it!

That reminds me I need new contacts... but I really should have my eyes re-checked before I order them.

For the first time in a long time I will not be getting a refund. Instead I owe more than I have ever owed in my life X 20.

My tax refund will go where it ALWAYS goes every year...........towards the first installment of my property tax that's due in May.

I'm planning on buying a new camera with part of my refund. The rest I'll save for when I move to a new apartment in the summer.

I think I would cry if I had to pay in

I found out how much I'm getting this year, and I think I'll just stick it all in savings & splurge on a cat tree for the boys, they really need one!

Thanks everyone,
for sharing what you will, or will not be doing with your refund (or non-refund).

As a side note, the "stimulus payments" won't be going out until May, so I guess I'll be waiting to get the LR

I'm very sad that I have to spend $200 of it to pay off my credit card

The rest, pay for rent most likely

i'm probably not getting a refund this year... i sold some property & i think it'll take all of the refund i would've gotten to pay the capital gains tax on it.

We are going to use the money to get the girls spayed as soon as they are old enough. I need some new pots and pans too. The rest will go in the savings.

The stimulus money will probably go in the savings too.

I was going to get a new monitor but that has changed. I still am getting a new monitor but I won't have to use my tax money for it. On June 4, 2007, I had a minor accident when a Police cruiser decided he wanted to go the other way and turned into the left turn lane, right into my car which happened to be in the turn late My insurance paid me for the damage less my $250 deductable. Well, today I got a check from the insurance company for the $250! I guess you can beat city hall since it was the cop's fault for not looking!

Since we got married last year and dh was officially declared 30% handicapped (troubles with his back), we'll get a good deal of refund this time, we calculated it with a tax program and it'll go towards paying new windows in our house - they date back to early 60's and it's horrible how much of a draft they let through! That will help our energy bills a bit, I hope

We'll put most of it in a money market and let it gain some interest, then use some of it to buy a good digital camera, the rest goes toward our vacation in Spain & Portugal in September!

The stimulus check will be used, partly, just for that. DH and I are going to take half and split that half between the two of us, and place the rest in our Money Market account. We're using the MM account to build up a down payment on a house.
