Your Take: Plans for Your Tax Refund?
Posted By Jim On 03/04/2011 @ 7:16 am In Your Take | 39 Comments
Last year, the average tax refund  was a cool three thousand bucks. While we don’t know what the average tax refund will be for the 2010 tax year, chances are it’ll be pretty sizable as a result of all the different stimulus and tax credits of the last year. While I’ve long talked about adjusting your tax withholding  (and reasons why you wouldn’t want to adjust ), most people don’t do it. Some people are concerned about penalties, others prefer this “forced savings,” and others just don’t want to bother.
We learned yesterday  that most people were planning on paying down debt or putting it towards savings, while others were going to buy a big ticket item or go on a vacation. The question we have for you today is – what do you plan to do with it? Save for a rainy day? Spend it on a vacation or new television? Put it towards a downpayment or against existing debt?
