Tax Refunds

April 15, 2024

Don’t celebrate just yet.

Getting a hefty tax refund may feel like a win, but let's break it down.

Essentially, it means you've been giving the government an interest-free loan all year.

Think of it this way. If you went to your bank and they said to loan them X amount of dollars for the year, but they would not pay you interest, would you loan them the money?

It may be a good idea to consider looking at your tax withholding, or consider using an accountant, to help keep more of your hard-earned money where it belongs – in your pockets!
