What Will You Do With Your Tax Refund?

What Will You Do With Your Tax Refund?


With tax season just around the corner, you may be thinking about what to do with your tax refund. First of all, if you set it up as a direct deposit into your bank or credit union, you’ll get your refund quicker. 

And, if you don’t have your tax refund earmarked for a new gadget, car down payment or home furnishings, you might consider using it to open a special savings account. Get a jump on saving for that special trip with family or a getaway for an anniversary of birthday.

The good thing about a savings account is that you’re adding to what you started out with. You’re growing your savings and when it comes time to decide what to do with it, who knows…you may decide just to keep on growing it!

If you don’t choose to save it, think about paying down a credit card. It’s a good way to start a new year. And it’s really another way of paying yourself in the long run.
