Develop a financial plan that would benefit from your tax refund If you have a tax refund coming this year, consider using this extra money as a one-time sum to begin putting your family finances in or- der. Look at your family's financial situation and evaluate the debts, es- pecially those with the highest in- terest rates. One way to put your family fi- nances in order is to pay credit card balances or loans that charge a high Future psychology majors on Tuesday, November 15, 2001, the BCMS Youth Service Center sponsored a career breakfast for students interested in psychology. The guest speaker was Courtney Mullins of Pathways. Students in attendance were Ashley Leach, Lynsie Rhoton, Mackenzie Snelling and Jessica Trusty. The 8th grade students chose their top three career choices and were placed in one area to have breakfast with a person in that profession• interest rate. If you receive a sub- stantial tax refund, you might be able to pay off several high-interest debts with relatively low balances. This will givc you a good start to pay all credit card accounts, keeping only one national credit card lbr emer- gencies. Once you have paid off each card, write the company to close your account. Be sure to de- stroy credit cards on the closed ac- counts. Review your withholding state- ment to determine if your refund is due to unusual deductions on this year's tax return, or is a result of excess withholding. If it's the latter, consider having less money with- held. You can use the extra to reduce high-interest debt or put it in an interest-bearing account. By investing the refund in a sav- ings account or a money market fund, you'll have money for unex- pected expenses. It's a good idea to have emergency savings equal to six months of family income. In- vesting the refund can make your family more financially secure by providing an adequate emergency fund. Another way to effectively use your income tax refund is to make a major purchase or do home repairs that you've been putting off until you have the money. These are op- portunities to put your tax refund to important use. Ixok at your family's overall spending patterns and have a meet- i ing to discuss the financial situation and set goals. Develop a written spending plan making expenses equal or less than income. Disci- pline spending so you can pay cash |or purchases, or pay the credit card balance before the grace period ends. Family members also should re- alize the need for long-term finan- cial goals such as buying a home, paying for college and saving for retirement. This will help young members learn that there are realis- tic limits on what you can afford. Eventually your family will move ahead financially.
