Story Pitch: Smile- Tax Season is a Great Time of Year

Tax season is often good news for consumers as many will receive a refund. In fact, the average refund from last year's tax returns was more than $3,000. So the big question is: what do I do with the cash infusion coming my way? Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) has a few suggestions that could help your financial well-being in the long run:

- Add/build a rainy day fund - why this is important now
- Contribute to a retirement fund - know the limits
- Pay down debt - compound interest can give you a pounding headache

A CPA can discuss these and more to educate your audience. Schedule an interview with one today by contacting Jim DeLuccia at jdeluccia@picpa.org or (267) 675-6261 or Kathleen Miller at kmiller@picpa.org or (215) 972-6188.
