Insurance paid off for the year?

If yes to both of those, go stage 2.

I got a check way bigger than that. Ordered a 20 x 12 shed with 2 sets of double doors plus a single door so I could drive my snowmobile in and then straight out.

You should do that too.

Or buy 100 ihatekhanh t shirts?

Something like that yeah. The child credit made up about half of my return, plus a few other credits I qualified for.

My sister is my CPA/CFP for my business, she's usually able to squeeze everything I can possibly get from my taxes.

1. 1 large Royal Feast pizza...this is a must.
2. Cobb AccessPORT from www.clarkturnertuning.com and BE SURE to tell him that Unabomber referred you...you'll find out why.
3. Axe Clark which downpipe you should buy and buy it.
4. Install downpipe and have Clark do an e-tune.
5. Next time I'm in Indy, you owe me item 1.
6. Since only you and I know what item 1 is, you know you can trust me 900% more than these other buttsharks, so take my damned advice.

Pay off/down the car or insurance. Trust me I know how you feel, but you'll have a lot more piece of mind modding a car that's paid off. Modding a car that you still owe money on makes you paranoid.
