Anyhow, what is the best strategy for me to take the $37.50 a paycheck (every two weeks) extra that I was paying (possibly more, not sure based on the unemployment skewing things, might be more like $50 or more) as taxes and put it into some account where it will grow?
Not sure if my best option is to just put it in a savings account or what.
Hmmm how are you getting anything back today when the IRS isn't accepting returns until the 30th of January?
Did the government go ahead and start taking them now?
