    Default Tax Refund - FY2009 edition

    We had one of these last year, why not start a new one for this year's taxes. So what are you all planning to do with your refunds?

    Since the state's HR machine hates me and always manages to screw up my withholdings it looks like I'll be getting a pretty significant refund again this year. I gotta keep an eye on that so I'm not giving the gov't an interest free loan again this year.

    Anyway I'm going to be boring and put that into paying down my house a bit. I should be more exciting and get a D700 + lenses but meh.

    A used crown vic would not be too expensive... and I have seen cab versions that were close to 300k on the odometer.

    Also good is the blacked out Charger approach:

    Yes the are!!!

    I could sleep in the back seat..lol

    A crown vic would be the bad ass exploring car, parking it wouldn't be a issue, and who is going to question some one in a car that looks like a unmarked police car? NO ONE!!

    Infact i would bet I could park it at the door and explore and come back out and drive off like nothing happened, and just wave at security.. infact before exploring wear black BDU pants a vest and hat.

    If I can write off my college loans, which, I don't see why I shouldn't be able to, I should be able to put a signifigant amount to my Dad for his prius, then I'm going to take a small loan after that.

    If I can't write 'em off, I'm only getting like 2K back I think, which will probably just go into paying down those dumb loans.

    Finished my tax prep last night, but I should really put it in the bank considering I will be a parent in two months. Can I justify the purchase of a lens by saying I would never have to pay for pictures?

    Dude, save your money - kids are not cheap! Especially when they're infants.

    Congratulations as well!!

    Mine probably won't be too considerable. But either way, I'll be putting whatever I get aside so I can buy a vehicle when school ends this year.

    Well, unless you sell them, THEN kids are quite profitable!

    you know, my dad made me mow the lawn once, I fell off and got my foot caught in it.
