It’s easy to spend your tax return on a fun new purchase—but not so fast! This once-a-year check has the potential to pay back debt, start an emergency fund or pay other critical expenses. With the average taxpayer receiving $3,000 in returns, it’s a great opportunity to do something financially meaningful. That’s not to say you can’t put some of your return toward wanted vs needed items. The key is covering the essentials before splurging on non-necessities. Our goal is to help you get the most out of your return. So stop by our Return to Tax Basics workshop and learn how you can make your money go farther.
