What Americans Plan to Do With Their Tax Refund

About 62% of Americans are anticipating a tax refund from either the IRS or their state this year.

Of that group, 1 in 2 people already know how they want to spend their return.

According to this recent survey , many Americans are choosing to use at least part of their money to improve their financial health.

About 20 percent of people say they will add to their savings with their refund. Americans plan on paying off debts: 18 percent will be paying off credit card debt, 3% will be paying down medical debt, 6% will be paying down student loans, and 16% will pay down other forms of debt.
Last year, the average tax refund amount was $2,782. That was 1.2% more than the average refund for the prior filing season.

This year’s average refund (for 2017) will likely be around the same amount, though the average return for 2018 may show some variation.
