What do you do with your tax refund?

I checked my Wells Fargo account this morning, and my tax refund just came in — just like TurboTax said! Sweet!

If I wasn’t in debt…

Some would go into an emergency fund, some towards building my own DVR, then invest the rest into an aggressive long-term mutual fund of some kind, aiming for 12-14%. That’s it.

What will I actually do with it?

Put the all (or the majority of it) towards debt.

It hinges on whether or not I take over bass guitar when Dan leaves. If we find someone else for that, I’ll use part of the money to buy myself a new guitar — to replace the one that got stolen — then use the rest for debt.

  1. Ours went straight into our savings account to help cover bills and such while my wife is on maternity leave (starting in a couple weeks). If that weren’t the case (and we had no debt), I’d be sitting here at work dreaming of the sweet macbook sitting at my house…

  2. Not quite sure what I’ll do with the $12 I get from state, but I’d rather not talk about the federal portion. 😦 If I didn’t have to pay in so much I think I’d buy a new driver.
