Thursday thoughts: What are you doing with your tax refund?

Posted April 12, 2012 12:20 a.m. EDT


Here we are at tax time again and I am wondering what you plan to do with your tax refund this year - if you are actually getting a refund. Are you planning to spend it on a vacation, remodel the kitchen, pay off debt, put it in the bank or use it some other way? Let's hear it - what are you doing with your tax refund?

If you aren't sure what to do with the refund, click HERE for an article from MSN about what NOT to do with your tax refund. Although I laugh at the 10% annual return she expects on her investments, the advice the author offers is solid.

This year we are putting our return into retirement savings.  Since my husband and I do not work for companies with matching retirement benefits, every little bit helps!
