Tackle Tax Season Like a Pro!

Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Tax Return

March is here, which means it’s already time to start thinking about the most “taxing” time of year. As you prepare your tax documents and get ready to crunch the numbers before the April 18 federal tax filing date, did you know you can actually get ahead of the game and file your return right now?

We know. Filing your taxes a month early doesn’t sound fun. But there are so many benefits to completing this chore early—benefits you may not even realize. Considering air conditioning replacement in your Land O’ Lakes, FL, home? Your tax refund (if you’re expecting one) is a great potential investment into your home and collecting it earlier can even help you save money on energy costs and maintenance throughout the year.

Here are some helpful tips for maximizing your tax refund when investing it back into your family’s living space:

New Equipment Means Lower Energy Bills

Do you know when your heating and cooling equipment was installed? If your HVAC system is over 10 years old, odds are it could be costing you up to 20% more to operate on a daily basis than systems manufactured today. Using your tax refund toward new major equipment, like your HVAC system or water heater, can not only lead to monthly energy savings, but also reduce the likelihood you’ll need service in the immediate future. The bump to your home’s value won’t hurt, either.

Plus, don’t feel the need to pay for an entirely new system or piece of equipment up front. Cornerstone Pros currently offers five years of no-interest financing on new equipment installations* for even greater financial flexibility when improving your home.

Repair or Tune Up Your Systems on a Tighter Budget

If new equipment isn’t in your budget after receiving your tax refund from Uncle Sam, you can still take important steps to improve your home’s comfort and get some peace of mind for the months ahead. Ignoring issues like a leak here or a tripped circuit there can definitely do more harm than good over time, leading to everything from an unsafe home to heightened energy bills and even faulty equipment. Using your refund to give your home’s utility systems the attention they need can be just as wise of an investment!

Identify Other Areas of Your Home That Need Attention

There are so many ways your tax refund can serve as a wise investment for your home. Even if you aren’t replacing any major HVAC, plumbing or electric systems, there’s always work to be done that can create a cozier and more valuable living space. Here are just a few ideas:

  • New appliances for your kitchen. A new electric stove or top-of-the-line refrigerator could be just the thing to spice up your recipes.
  • New fixtures for your bathroom. Sinks, toilets and bathtubs are used often, but not often considered for replacement. These updates could be the start of a whole new look!
  • Fresh paint and crown molding. Bring your rooms back to life with a fresh coat of paint, whether it’s the same color or a new one. Add crown molding to give rooms a new, elegant feel.
  • Electrical upgrades. New ceiling fans, light fixtures, outlets or switches can illuminate and modernize your space.
  • Better home water. A new water filtration system can help to ‘soften’ your water, which is beneficial to your body and your home.
