3 Smart Uses for Your Income Tax Refund
2018 ushered in big changes to U.S. tax law leaving many taxpayers unsure of what to expect when filing this year. If you receive a refund, you should decide how to use the extra cash to meet your goals.
You might need to split up your refund to put a little money aside for multiple goals, or you may have other plans for your refund. Set and prioritize your financial goals, ranking them based on: importance, time before the financial need and your ability to access other funding sources.
