  • ZERO... We pay in quarterly. Be thankful you get a refund..

  • Yup, it's gone. We're getting one of those great swing sets you see at BJ's, paying off a credit card, and the rest will pay for our annual Florida Vacation. We got about 5K last year. We might get a bit more as my husband got a 10K bonus this year and it was taxed 44%.

  • Yup. We get around $5000. I am getting either laser hair removal, or electrolysis. But that won't even be half. We may go on a good vacation when hubby gets back from Afghanistan.

  • Usually it is. This is the first year we have nothing planned for the money. We usually get around $5000 back. Last year we paid off a few things, bought a new computer and some other stuff and saved back $1000.

    This year I'm putting another $1000 in the savings account but not sure what we will do with the rest. I might suggest my husband pick up a cheap laptop because his computer has about had it (it's almost 7 years old).

  • Yup. Spent. Just had a baby, and we have a two year old. So were getting a double stroller so I dont have to chase two kids around. My husband is leaving for Deployment soon after taxes so Ill probly be getting a laptop so we can both have personal computers and then of course, bills.
