What are you doing with your Tax Refund

I haven't seen this thread posted out there. Just curious what people are doing with their Tax Refund (assuming you are actually getting one back)?

This year I will get myself a Canon 50D

Invested it in the stock market. Hoping to win enough capital gains to cover the mods to the car. That is if nobama doesn't decide to tax those to oblivion and completely eradicate any sense of a free market economy or any other incentive left in this socialist country.

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

I paid an electrician, a plumber (hvac) and a spray foam insulator. I thought I was going to be even, but I miscalculated on my withholdings. I was really happy about my screw-up for a change.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

Yeah I claimed half a dozen dependants since I bought a house last year and turns out my estimate was low.

Tax deductable mortgage interest rocks! This year I upped it by a few more. But the money came at the perfect time to buy in.

When I cash out it should pay the rest of my property taxes for the year, pay for all the goodies going into the G8, and probably next years property taxes as well, or I might buy my dad's boat....
