3 Smart Moves With Your Tax Return

Tis the season for tax returns…sorta, feels almost like Christmas, right? With the average tax return coming in at over $2,900 this year, there is a lot to be excited about.

But if you do not have a plan, the money from your tax return could be gone in a flash!

So today, I have 3 Smart Money Moves for you, to maximize how you use your tax return.

Smart Money Move #1: Make a principle-only payment to your highest interest debt, most likely your credit card.

Smart Money Move #2: Build up your “rainy day” account. This is a great opportunity to stash some money in a liquid account that you don’t use regularly.

Smart Money Move #3: Put the remaining amount into your retirement fund. If you don’t have one, this is an excellent time to get one started.
