Thumbs up WooHoo Received W2- Official 'What are you buying with tax return $$' Thread!

I'm not in the red this year and am getting a decent return due to my new job.

I plan on picking up a box TNA Tenacious Wrestling and a box of Panini Threads/Limited.

Also, in memory of THQ and officialy RIP as of today, going to pick up a replica DarkSiders 46" sword

....The rest of my return will go towards bills

Well hope all of you are aware that the IRS isn't processing any returns until atleast January 30th, and Nobody will receive their money until 7-21 after processing. So don't go spending your refunds too early!

Nothing other then just buying any regular day to day things I'd be anyway. I don't give the government an interest free loan so I tax plan accordingly at the start of the year. If you're getting thousands back then you are doing some pretty horrible planning.

I wish I could say I'm buying something sweet, but it just goes into my savings account. Although, some would say saving for a down payment on a house is sweet.

You do realize there's child credits out there and stuff so people can get back that much without putting into it, so your magical theory isn't always correct

say you have 2 kids and only make around 20k. It's possible to get around that much, don't be too envious until you know everyones situation.

You have a larger percentage withheld from you paycheck (free loan to the government) to later use to pay your income taxes.

Some taxes you can estimate, some depends on actions you take with your investments. If it turns out your had more withheld than you owe, then you get the difference back.

Since my wife changed jobs and I was unsure how I would handle some investments I had too much withheld. Whatever I get back goes straight into a tax-free Roth IRA investment plan.

If someone has two kids and makes 20k I would question their decision-making.

Couldn't agree more. I'm a registered tax preparer, and I cringe when people get thousands back. Proper planning would put that money in peoples hands when they need it, not after they've put thousands on credit waiting to pay it off.

Responsible is NOT getting thousands, with or without kids, it's getting zero, with or without kids.

You do know that you can control how much money you loan to uncle sam correct? If you are getting 8k or anywhere near that back you are not doing it right.

Also, This.


Getting 8k back from the government is essentially giving them an interest free loan for the entire year. That money could have been used for investments with actual returns.

7/21? Is that for sure? I was aware there could be a delay, but i hadn't heard it would be that long.

Just because someone doesn't plan the same way you do doesn't mean it's horrible.

I'm married with 3 kids, but claim 0 dependents and have them hold out extra throughout the year. I'm sure there is more profitable ways to save, but it's easier for me if I don't see the money to begin with.

Spot on.

I'm a CPA - so people getting thousands back, when it's avoidable, will never make logical sense to me.

My favorite is people on here complaining about scam buyers that take a loan, "tie up" the buyers money, and then they have to wait 3 weeks for a Paypal refund...essentially they are doing the same thing with the government. Giving them a bunch of your money to "tie up" for a year and then refund it back to you - and you get nothing out of it. Getting a tax refund is like filing a Paypal claim.
