Do you spend weeks each spring eagerly anticipating your income tax refund? When the money finally comes in, is it gone tomorrow?
You’re not alone. Many consumers view tax refunds as unplanned bonuses. In their minds, the money is a gift from the government, to use for splurges or treats. They don’t consider how they might put the refund to better use.
Whether or not you are in need of debt relief, a tax refund provides the opportunity to improve your financial situation. The credit counselors at ClearPoint Credit Counseling Solutions offer these tips on how to get the most value from your refund check.
