LATEST POLL: How Did You Utilize Your Tax Refund?by Tim Manni
Assuming you received your federal tax refund already, we’re looking to find out what you did with your money this year.
Granted, if your withholdings and deductions are in perfect alignment, you should technically get no money back. Yet for many, me included, giving up a few extra dollars from each paycheck is a worth-while payoff to receiving a check from the government every year. Of course, I did give them an interest-free loan all year, so it’s the least they can do.
Just because the recession technically ended in the end of 2009, doesn’t mean everyone else’s economic woes have ended. That being the case, perhaps your tax-return-spending habits changed this year from those prior.
We want to know what you did with your 2009 tax refund; please vote on our poll below:
