Refund or Tax Bill?

Did you get your taxes done? Will you have to pay, or do you have money coming back? Either way: What's the plan?

I just—gosh, more than eight hours before the midnight deadline—finished my tax return, and was surprised at the outcome:

Instead of paying out, as I did last year with many a groan of complaint, I'm getting money back from both the state and federal governments this year.

It's no impressive sum, certainly not like winning the lottery. And I know it was always mine in the first place; the government was just taking care of it for me.

But it's money I wasn't expecting to see, and that always sets the imagination free: Mine is racing to several local restaurants, whose and could sop up my little refund in a few hours.

Are you looking forward to a tax refund? Or will you—as I did last year—absorb the bill by cutting back on something you enjoy?

I wish I was getting a refund this year!
