smart moves with your tax refund

Posted by   + Show Post

tax season is right around the corner, and for those of us who are getting a return, anticipating spending is a must! I was wondering what some of you will be doing with your chunk of change to get some fresh ideas for myself....ya know, besides splurging on a new car, clothes etc. I'm over all of that and can wait for those things when I am able to afford them. Right now, I'm trying to move my family and myself forward, not stay stuck in the present!

I am getting a adoption credit this year for 13 thousand and I have to pay our health insurance that sky rocketed 4 times the amount that it was in 2010. OUCH! Thank God we have a beautiful child though that we are grateful for. I feel guilty having to use her adoption credit for our health insurance. I am guilt ridden.I'd rather spend it on her special needs, as she has many that the credit could be used for.

Going to pay off as much of our car as we can. Hoping it'll be enough to cover the whole thing but not sure.

Using some on debts, buying a carseat, we may get a used car (reliable but really inexpensive due to it being sold by a friend plus we're at an overseas military base and people sell their cars for cheap since we don't pcs with them). Mostly I'm hoping we get enough back that we have enough left over to fly my mom out here for the birth of this baby. If we can't then no one in either of our families will meet him until he's probably at least 6 months old if not older.

Have you looked into children's special health care in your state it is I surance for special needs kids ran by the state but not the same as medicaid or low income insurance
