Feb 11th: H&R Block Canada Twitter Party!
I love tax time. In fact, I think all PF bloggers love tax time. :) So you can imagine how excited I was when I was asked to host H&R Block Canada’s first ever Twitter chat with my PF friends Bridget from Money After Grad, and Marissa from Thirtysixmonths.
Here’s all the information you’ll need to join in on the Twitter chat:
- February 11th, 8-9pm EST (5-6pm PST) – anyone in Canada can join in – we want to chat with everyone! :)
- Follow @KrystalatWork, @ThirtySixMonths, @MoneyAfterGrad, and @HRBlockCanada
- Use the #HRBTaxChat hashtag
- Jump in, and ask as many questions as you want! We’re here to help you with all of your tax questions!
What do you usually do with your tax refund?
Me, I like to use the 90/10 rule when it comes to tax refunds or any sort of “bonus” money I wasn’t expecting (like a bonus, or cash present) – where 90% of the money goes towards something responsible – like my mortgage or RRSP/TFSA – and the leftover 10% is spent on something fun.
This year, I won’t be getting a huge tax refund, so I will likely put the entire amount into my TFSA.
So no matter what your tax situation – whether you’re a student, filing for the first time, or have a complicated return – please join us in the #HRBtaxchat tomorrow! :)
