Its probably been over a decade since I seen anything back from Uncle Sam. These days, even though I'm married, I file separately, my wife gets the kids as dependents to maximize her return to offset what I have to pay. At the end of the day, my wife gets back a couple hundred bucks and I owe around $1K. I think this year only $310 going to the IRS, because my wife was put on part time of a few months and made less money. Worst year was when I had to shell out $1,500 after the offset from my wife's return. Boy did that year suck.
However, I don't wanna be a party pooper...so say $500 fell out of the sky and I had to spend it on myself.
I would either buy an Xbox One (yes I am 45 years old) , a new pistol (I feel in the mood for a Ruger SP101, or a Bond Arms Derringer) , or on a hiking/camping trip to the White Mountains in NH (mostly for gas and toll money from PA) .
