I spent it on lingerie for the honeymoon and a new Marc Jacobs bag!

I figured this is the last year I’ll be getting something back because when we start filing jointly, we’ll owe money.

oh man, good question!  i dont think i’m getting a refund, but if i was, i’d save it and use it for the wedding!!! 

as a tax consultant, and a fellow BEE,  I advise all of you girls to put your money in a tax-free muni bond in your state.  Those have good yield and is tax free for federal and state purpose.  Something to think about.

@Nexus-6….Thats right up my alley, haahaahaa 

At the moment I have put it in my savings.  I still haven’t figured out what I want to do with it…it will not be going towards anything wedding related!

We’re going the responsible/boring route = putting it all into savings.

Obviously going towards the wedding….paying for our airline tickets to Amsterdam and Munich! How funny it is that the money goes into our account just as quickly as it comes right back out! LOL

Well we bought a house back in October so we are lucky that we get that big ol’ $8,000—that’s going mostly to do things around the house and probably some of it towards our Roth IRAs.  From my personal tax refund amount though, to pay off my one and only bill I have left, my student loan.  I have less than $1,800 to pay off and I am so damn excited.  Last year was huge for me, got engaged, paid off my credit card debt, car and other half of the student loans.  Starting married life debt free—well, besides a mortgage, but I don’t count that.  I’ll have that probably forever.  Undecided
