  • We can't find anyone cheap to do them. With us jobless.. And my having Cancer & numerous all year long treatments. We have NO money. Since DH only had Unemployment comp. I'm sure we won't get any Refund! And Wow if ever in my Life we needed a refund its now! DH would have been at his job 25 years! But he lost it & our insurance over 2 years ago. We always used any refunds towards our property Taxes and bills we're behind on. Then hopefully a meal out! Not this year either. Good Luck on all getting refunds. May you get something spoiling you hope for!

  • Dh bought me a car :-), we fixed his then he decided he didnt want it, so he got himself a car (sold his first), spring clothes for the kids, DSi's for the boys, and a huge bday party & toys for dd. I also paid my oldest ds' traffic ticket.

  • DH hasn't even FILED our taxes yet, and I don't know where his tax info is, so I can't. It's REALLY starting to irritate me. When we DO FINALLY get it, it will go towards bills, savings and a few things we want/need.

  • We paid our rent up for a year :) We also got a new laptop, and paid up all our bills. That was about it.

  • Angelinda: I don't live far from you and I do the taxes for my whole family. I am willing to do them for FREE if you would like.

    We will use our refund for our summer vacation. We don't get much back so it just is a little supplement of what we spend.

  • We put it in savings.

  • Still haven't filed but may be doing that this coming week. We hope to get enough to buy new kitchen appliances.

  • I didn't, it went straight into the bank account.

    Answer by older at 4:28 PM on Mar. 12, 2011

  • We didn't get much back at all...just the little bit that we overpaid because we never added an exemption at work for our youngest daughter. It was enough to pay for my ultrasound and one of my credit hours at school this semester, so nothing fun, but that is okay, I guess.
