I'm going to pay the rest that I owe (near the absolute max that I can pay without penalty) because I don't overpay and create an interest free loan and then delude myself that I'm "getting money back" when I didn't need to pay it in the first place.

Have you ever wondered why the withholding tables are so out of whack?

Already bought some components for up front, and a pair of 6.5" subs for midbass in the rear. When I get the car out of storage I am going to get a complete interior and exterior detail, and use the rest of my return to pay off student loans.

$5900 back between federal and state. Over 10% of my income was taxed as bonus and my wife was a full time college student so despite claiming 8 exemptions I still get a lot back.

Dumped it all into savings. I considered using it to pay the car off but I didn't want to. I like to pretend I don't have a tax return.

2013 Outback, sadly due to playing around in the stock market, I probably won't be getting to pay for it with tax return money.

Getting rid of the saab, this car has been an endless money and time pit for me. To the point that I don't even want to sell it to anyone I know.
