Pay for Needed Repairs

Occasionally, your vehicle will need an oil change, new tires, wheel alignments and more completed. In other cases, you might have something unexpected happen to your car, such as an engine breakdown or a malfunctioning transmission. Whether your car needs some regular maintenance done or there is a more serious problem happening with your vehicle, your tax refund can help cover the costs for needed repairs.

Lower Your Car Loan Principal

If you have recently purchased a vehicle and are still paying down your car loan, your tax refund can lower your car loan principal significantly. Whether you are nearing the end of your loan and wish to pay it off or you are looking to save some interest, using your tax refund towards your car loan is always a good option.

Use as a Down Payment for a Different Car

In the market for a different car? Use your tax refund as a down payment for a different car! Not only will this save months of putting money aside for a down payment but using your tax refund as a down payment will help lower the principal of your car loan, resulting in less interest being paid in the long run.
