How are you handling your return?

If you are getting a refund this year, what are your plans for it?

I want to buy a new master bed set and a new set for DD.

Part will go to pay for a trip to a friends wedding, part to pay for car repairs, part to pay off the credit card, and the rest in savings.

I think this year we will
buy new living furniture ( every 5 years)
Have our driveway resurfaced ( nice, black, and smooth again)
Put stone on our fireplace chimney ( which is on our roof outside)
Put any left over in our Disney fund ( just us girls are going next fall.. Staying at the Grand Floridian, Club Level, Theme Park View Room!! Can't wait

This years tax return should pay off the remainder of the (160AKL) DVC membership we bought last year!

saving, money for vacation, but honestly we get a lot less than we used to. we have opted to get more in the check, and less at return time.... I would love to get a huge thousands of dollars return I always hear about, but that's just not the way my husband does the numbers!!

Mine is really exciting. We'll use it to pay our property taxes.

We pretty much break even at tax time. Any refund is quite small.

All going to savings! Splitting between down payment for a new-to-me car and a trip abroad (hopefully my first ABD or a trip to Tokyo Disney!).
