:;co Hummmmmm, this takes some thought. OK...

#1. Buy fuel for our generator.

#2. Pay for insurance.

#3. Pay off cc's (not all but at least some)

#4. Try to do the up keep on vehicles that will keep them going another year.

#5. Fish stuff.....IF we stay here in our house another year...I have a dream of building a BIG tank.....a DIY project of at least 400 gal...I've got my husband just about to the breaking point

Almost ready to give in....... We just have to get some young strapping kid to help that doesn't have arthritis... We can't pick up 72" x 36" x 1/2" glass , the hands just won't do what there suppose to!!!

Pay off a bill completely so that my transition from crappy job into career that doesn't have a paycheck every week will be smoother.

Tempted to use it for bike parts, but it will pay off a loan and what is left will be gas money for a vacation...

????? Sounds like you need a new accountant..

That is what being in business is all about, you must be making Huge profits if you can't offset most with expenses. If that is the case, maybe you need to be insuring all your employees with health insurance! They have just introduced a bill in our state legislature that will see that people like us will do that (my husband and I have a small business also).

I own a dance studio and all of our teachers are independent contractors, so we don't have to provide health insurance. We usually don't owe a lot in taxes, we just don't get anything back. I would like it if we could have a fulltime accountant though It would make my life a lot easier!

1. pay for my new HD camcorder.

2. buy more live rock.

3. 'invest' in lottery tickets. ;D

4. buy the wife something nice on our cruise - that should help for when I do something bad.

5. .... umm...blow it on women and beer?? I might want to look into #4 a little closer.

Hmmm. We get our annual bonus at work at the same time as taxes sooooo....

1) pay cash for our wedding which is March 2009 (we're doing destination so it's a little less expensive)

2) the boy wants a new tv for the living room

3) heavier tank decor so Oscar doesn't move it...

4) buy a few powerball tickets and pray for early retirement

5) save whatever is left

I was thinking of spending my tax return on a nice night out with my wife. Unfortunately $7 won't even pay for the gas to get to a decent restaurant.
