Part to a credit card and part into savings.

I'm hoping next year to be able to say I'm putting it to something fun, like a DVC purchase. LOL

It's all going into savings to pre-pay our hospital bills.

Paying off DW's SUV and a credit card are the 2 big things. With DS getting ready for college this fall, having an extra 500.00 a month will come in handy.

we decided to put 1/2 away for our young DD, the rest just into our savings for those things that come up ( car repairs, unexpected things that crop up; you know...life)

We're not getting much of a refund, but what we do get we plan to use to pay off the remainder of our car.

Part of it for a Disney trip...yay! Pay off some medical bills, NKOTB concert, and a trip to Hershey, PA for a skating competition that my daughter, and some of my students that I coach are participating in. Anything that's left will stay in savings.

I already have part of next years mentally spent too...new skates finally after 12 years, and central air.
New ticker hopefully coming soon - even if it will be over a year out!!!!

We try our hardest to not get a refund every year, or at least not much of one. It's my money and I want it, not let the gov play with it. Anyway, we owe Fed a whopping $27-yay, that one worked. And we're getting $1650 from state, deposited today actually. I paid off DH's car last month (2 years early) so starting to hit cc's since my car has been paid off for 2 years (also 2 years early). Working on our two cc's, but the refund is mostly going to go towards some landscaping we're having done. I'm already paying 3x the min on one card so paying it off this year.

Putting it in the bank until Oct. If we don't have an emergency come up then the money will go on the principle of our mortgage.

Got our fed yesterday. Went to pay our auto insurance. With a teen boy driver, that took it all plus some!

Have already earmarked the state to pay a bill.

Nothing fun, and nothing to savings. But at least with the refunds, we didn't have to take from savings to cover these few bills.

We paid off our remaining credit card debt and paid a few bills that are always due around this time each year (HOA fees, sports fees for DS, etc.).

We kept a little for ourselves...DH and I went to the beach for Valentine's Day, & DS went to WDW last week on a school trip, so we gave him some spending money.

The rest is going into savings.

Paying of 2 LARGE debts that we free up about 300$ a month for us. Putting some in savings. Paying down some CC and DISNEY VACATION! YAY! Its well deserved. Hubs started a new job in March last year, I'm praying I'll start nursing school in the fall and both kiddos will be in school next fall so it is MUCH needed. Nice thing is- we will be paying cash for 95% of our vacation. Super excited!

well,I don't expect much in returns...we keep it fairly close to even every year on purpose (that's my money,I want it year round) but whatever we do get I plan to drop into my escrow account to pay property taxes. We pay twice a year,separate from our mortgage-
