Spend Your Tax Return Wisely in 2018
The stress of tax season is mounting. Take a moment to consider what you’ll do with some extra cash. Overall, most Americans spend their tax return money 3 basic ways:
Tax Refund Plans
1. Save Your Money
If you find yourself without an emergency fund in your savings account, it’s wise to save this money. Generally, it’s encouraged to have at least 3-months’ operating expense in your savings account for emergency purposes. Depending on your lifestyle and family environment, you may wish to reserve upwards of 6 to 8 months’ worth of emergency funds.
2. Pay Off Existing Debt
Paying off high-interest debt is always the top priority when tackling the bills. Conquer the credit card debt, car loans, and student loans to avoid incurring additional debt due to interest accumulation. Consult your personal finance and accounting advisors for specific recommendations on paying off debt.
3. Spend it on New Ventures
Putting money into your home is a great investment by increasing the property value. You’ll find the most bang for your buck with kitchen and bathroom remodeling projects. Making your home safe and contemporary adds curb appeal in a seller’s market.
