Whether it’s some serious coins or just a drop in the bucket, your tax refund is probably feeling like some inheritance. Except that it is that interest-free loan you made to the U.S. government. Instead of withholding all of that funds taken from your paycheck, you could’ve had all that cash well spent. So while you might have already earmarked your refund for either a new wardrobe, a major tech upgrade, or an exotic vacation--we have a few better ways to divvy up your tax refund.

While we are not financial advisers, listen as we discuss five smart ways for you to spend your tax return, instead of blowing it on unnecessary splurges.
