I have never had a big refund. Im holding out hope that this year will be the start of them given we now have a child. I was hoping for a big refund the year we purchased the house but I discovered there was indeed a negitive to having low interest. The fact that mortgage interest alone didnt put me over the itemized vs standard deduction limits.
If I do get a sizable return then we look forward to updating the carpet in the basement. Already have an idea it will run about $800-900 due to the SQ Footage. If there is funds left after that I would like to update my houses electricty to a 200amp service from the existing 100amp service. Including install a few dedicated circuts to the tanks.
