Default What to do with Tax Return

Ok, so the gov't decided they'd let me have some of my money back this year. Still not happy about the rest of the money they stole, but Im atleast happy to get a little back.

The Question now is, do iuse it to help get mea new Hoyt Trykon or Put the money in the "Engagement Ring Fund"

Better yet, put it in a retirement investment. If you claim a 0 on your taxes every year and then take the returns and invest them you will probably retire 5-10 years earlier. This is what I do with mine every year. I hate working, and hope to retire young enough to be able to hunt all day long or be outside all year.

Or better yet, claim the proper ammount of deductions on your W2,takeall of that money that you would have been loaning to the Feds intrest free and place it into an intrest bearing savings account and at the year invest even more money than you would be getting back from theFeds byclaiming"0".

You just gotta have the dicipline to put it into a savngs account every pay day.


Or since you, and probably she, knows about this engagement you might want to make sure she gets a nice ring.

I like that the results are 3 to 0 in favor of putting toward an engagement ring! The retirement idea is a good idea, but if getting married, "butter the bread" up front, pony a little extra for the ladies ring and then you will have cred down the road for hunting "investments."

The new bow will last 3-5 years before you want a new one..Skimp on the ring and that bride will be gone long before you are replacing the string!
