It’s not uncommon for the beginning of the year to be rough for many of us. We’re all trying to stay on top of our New Year’s resolutions, stressing over Valentine’s Day, and being anxious about tax season.
The great thing is that your tax return is sure to put a smile on that face! So, what do you plan to do with all of that money once it shows up? If you haven’t a clue, we have some smart ways to put it to work.
Debt is probably one of the most demoralizing and harmful problems that exist in this day and age. If you’ve got some of your own, why not put a dent in it by paying some of it off with your tax return? We suggest smart payments to try to lower your interest as soon as the check arrives.
There’s a good chance your debt is actually under control and you don’t need to worry about it. If that’s the case, you should try to invest your tax return! Sure, you can play your cards on Wall Street, but why not invest in your retirement instead? Your tax return could potentially go into an IRA, a work-based retirement plan, or any other retirement portfolio.
Save it for a Rainy Day
Securing your tax return is no reason to spend it right away. In fact, it would be a smart idea if you chose to save it for an emergency. If at all possible, try to keep at least six months’ worth of expenses in a savings account just in case things go south.
