    I'm putting the money toward my Best Buy card to pay for the DVD's I've already purchased. By the time I receive the refund it might be time for Homicide S4 so that will be my splurge.

    Tax refund? What's that? I actually had to pay taxes to the IRS last year - $500 worth! Grrrrrrrr!!! [​IMG]

    I probably won't see another tax refund until after I'm married. And even then, it'll be deferred to paying for car insurance and not for DVDs. Such is life... [​IMG]

    If I'm lucky, I'm going to buy a widescreen TV to watch my existing DVDs on. We'll see. I've no idea what my taxes are going to be like this year. Just got married.

    Does a new couch from which to watch DVDs count? My wife and I pooled all of our Chistmas money and will top it off with our tax refund to buy a new couch.

    No DVDs this year, unfortunately. It's all going towards a Dell Inspiron Laptop.

    Okay, maybe a couple DVDs:

    -Planet of the Apes (anamorphic re-release)
    -Ed Wood
    -Lost In Translation
    -Gilligan's Island (Season 1)

    These all come out 2 days after my birthday, so maybe I won't have to spend any part of my refund on them. [​IMG]

    I rarely get a tax refund, but that's fine with me -- I'd rather earn interest on my money than let the IRS hold it.

    Joe, I actually need the IRS to hold my money for me. Otherwise it would be pissed away. This way, I have enough saved up at least once a year to buy something nice that will last. [​IMG]

    The government thanks you for the interest-free loan. Well, actually it doesn't, but it will use your money just the same.[​IMG]

    We are in the process of buying a new house. Now, you might think it would go towards that, but no. I told my wife the only way I was moving was if it had a wall in the living room big enough for a projector screen and she let me have a couple thousand to get a projector. So, that's probably where my tax return is going.

    None. In these impoverished times of low wages, I need to pay off credit card bills. But if I had a choice, Roger and Me and Bowling for Columbine.

    Unfortunately none, or a least no more than I would usually buy over a given period. I pre-spent my refund on a down payment on a new car, and I've got my eye on a Marshall 6100 guitar amp. Tax refund done been spent, and I don't even have it yet.
