According to the IRS in 2018, over 154 million people received a refund, that’s a lot of people with a little extra cash in their pockets! Are you getting a refund? Will you be heading out to visit car dealerships with your refund? Let’s take a look at how to make the most out of it!


The average return is nearly $3,000, that is a good amount that can be put towards a down payment!

Do Your Homework. Decide what type of car you are looking for and how much you are able to afford. Don’t just blow that extra cash on a down payment just to have monthly you cannot afford.

Choose your dealership. How far are you willing to travel for the right deal? There are many options out there to help you if you know what type of car you are looking for and they allow you to narrow down your search area showing you what is available where you are. If you have a favorite dealership, be sure to check their website to look for deals, print ads, and even going down and talking to them in person.

Plan it out. Take time out of your schedule to get some in-person shopping done. Being rushed is the last thing you want to do! Let the money burn a hole in your pocket if you have to while you are looking for the right deal!
