Use Your Tax Refund Towards Something Special

How long does your tax refund last?  On average, Americans say their tax refunds are gone within 15 weeks.  And those filing this year expect their refund to be gone in just eight weeks if they decide to spend it.  That’s according to a tax time survey by straight talk wireless. Instead of blowing your tax refund and having refund regrets, put your tax refund towards something special.
