Some North Carolina consumers dread tax time, while others love it because they know it means they’ll get a nice big tax refund check. If you’re getting a refund this year, but you’re also deep in debt, it’s time to carefully consider what to do with your IRS check to make the most significant impact in your financial crisis. Some people see their annual tax windfall as the chance to buy a luxury item like a TV or take a vacation, but that cash might be better spent on peace of mind.
