    Student loans.

    I'm getting some bike stuff this winter, but it's just because this time is a good opportunity to get stuff cheap.

    That's financially smart. Better to decrease your withholding so you actually owe a bit at the end of the year without incurring penalties.

    Better having use of the money throughout the year instead of giving the government an interest-free loan.

    Mine is going to savings for the most part but a small portion will go towards a trip the girlfriend and I are taking this summer. Road trip to Tennessee from central Texas to watch the motocross nationals race, and camp out and ride some mtb trails along the way. 7 days of trails, highway, and dirt bikes!

    I owe money

    I owe money. That means I had extra money in my pocket, rather than Uncle Sam's for the past year. You are a fool if you let Uncle Sam keep your money for free for up to 16 months.

    I don't get it. You have a passion for paying more taxes than you should, giving that money to the government as a free loan, and getting it paid back with no interest, and likely you are paying money to get that "refund" even though the paperwork is easily available and not really that complicate if you have the reading comprehension of a chimpanzee. Excuse me if I seem somewhat passionate about it.


    Now I do plan to buy a new wheel set once I pay the government a little bit for what I

    Vassago Verhauen frame to replace my One 9 SS frame.
    RS Pike 29'er 150 solo air for my Covert 29.

    Well, let's see now. Without much choice in the matter, I am paying for &%(**%#$%^&#$)((*&^^%%$#@!, and a multitude of other things I try not to think about.

    Sorry, off track.....Maybe a new dropper post.

    Most likely savings......if it is a bike, either 29er HT or 26 FS for the wife. Simple logic, happy wife = more riding.

    X2. I send my money on April 14. I give them a one day cushion.
    I never saw the point of giving the gov an interest free loan.

    I have never gotten a return until this year. But because of the birth of my son we come out with about $1500 and due to some good insurance I only owed the hospital about $300 in which we already paid off. So i have some to use! It will be nice for a change.

    Devinci Troy and a fork to finish up my hardtail build.

    I work in restaurants for tips so I have a hard time having the extra tax taken out of my paychecks since I usually get $0 to $20 checks. I also have a large amount of deductions so my return is usually substantial.
