Turn Your Tax Refund into a Down Payment

Tax season is here again - and if you’re like many Americans, you’ll be using this year’s refund to do something car-related, whether it’s fixing your current car, paying it off, or buying a new one. That’s because refunds, which have averaged around $3,000 in recent years, can provide buyers with a ready-made down payment on their next ride. How? The process is simple.

File Your 2018 Taxes Yourself or Hire a Professional
It will cost a little money, but paying a professional to prepare your taxes will ensure that everything is done properly.

File Your Taxes Electronically or by Mail
If you file your taxes through the mail, your refund will be processed in 6-8 weeks. If you file them online, you should have your refund within 21 days. You may check the status of your refund by visiting the IRS hosted site called “Where is My Refund?”

Research Your Vehicle Purchase and Get Your Pre-Approval
After verifying the amount that you will be getting back, you should start looking into your car options. Are you going with used or new? Which vehicles on the market seem to suit your everyday needs best?
