Tax returns are due in 2 days!

Do you file your own taxes or have someone do them for you? I think everyone’s favorite part of tax season is the tax refunds after everything has been completed. You may get a big tax refund or a small one. You may spend it or save it. I know my friends and I usually spend ours on food and textbooks.

 


This weekends blog is about different things you can do with your tax refund.
