Tax refund on the way? Use it to fortify your financial future.

May 1, 2019

If you are expecting a refund this year, you may be tempted to splurge on something not-so-practical. Before you do, take some time to think about ways to use your refund to bolster your financial health. We’ve put together a few ideas for you to consider:

  • Start or increase your emergency fund: If you don’t already have at least six months of savings stashed away in case of an unforeseen financial emergency, use your tax refund to help build up your savings account.
  • Eliminate or pay down high-interest debt: Paying off high-interest debt such as credit card balances, payday loans and debt consolidation loans with your refund is a smart move.

  • Contribute to tax-sheltered accounts: Use your tax refund to top-up (or start) a Roth IRA or 529 college savings plan. You’ll compound dollars and interest for your future retirement or college tuition needs while scoring a tax deduction as well.

  • Create a legacy: If you have always wanted to create your own foundation for giving back, use your tax deduction to get it started. You may even be able to use your new non-profit status to mitigate your tax bill for next year while doing good for others.

  • Invest in yourself or your business: If you’ve taken care of savings and debts, consider enriching yourself by taking a class or purchasing a needed piece of equipment for your business.

These are just a few ways that you can fortify your financial future with your tax refund. Make a plan for using your money wisely this year.
