Never, never borrow MONEY from ANY TITLE LOAN BUSINESSES. You could LOSE your TITLE to your CAR. It is NOT WORTH it. They want you to PAY BACK the LOAN by the end of ONE MONTH. So if you borrowed $1,000.00, your financing could be $250.00 or MORE. If you don't have the $1,250.00 saved up. You have to PAY $250.00 every month until the LOAN is PAID in FULL. Save up the MONEY for the merchandise that you would like. You NEED your VEHICLE every day of the YEAR for your family and yourself!!

1. Isn't a bigger refund better? Article Controls email print reprint newsletter comments (2) share Digg It! yahoo Facebook Twitter Reddit rss Yahoo! BuzzThe simple answer is "no." The important line on your tax return is the "Tax Liability" line, not the "Refund or Balance Due" line. A smaller tax liability is always better. Taxpayers should plan to minimize their tax, not maximize their refund. Example: Jonathan and James each have federal tax calculated to be $12,000 on their tax returns. Jonathan receives a $500 refund and James receives a $2,000 refund. Who made out better? Jonathan, with his $500 refund. They both paid the same in federal taxes, but Jonathan had $12,500 withheld and James had $14,000 taken out of his pay. Jonathan had use of his money throughout the year, and did not provide the government with an interest-free loan. James gave the government an interest-free loan of his money, while he paid for a motorcycle repair on his credit card at 17% interest.
