9 Ways To Use A Tax Refund


Uncle Sam's Ingratitude

When it comes to taxes, most people end up paying more than their fair share throughout the year – only getting them back months later as a refund. How can a refund be a bad thing? Well, a refund is basically the government repaying the principal on a loan from you, sans interest. To put a stop to your unintentional charity, you need to adjust your withholding when your situation changes (you buy a house, you get married, etc.). If, however, you didn't get around to it, we'll look at how to use your tax refund to strengthen your overall financial situation.
