5 Fun Ways to Spend Your Tax Refund

Happy tax day!

“Get your billion back, America!”

Every time I see that commercial, I wonder how weird it would be if that guy was actually your tax guy. (Yep, that affable man in the bow tie is named Richard Gartland, and he really is a “senior tax preparer” for H&R Block in California. He also did this clip with Ellen, and it’s hilarious.) Then I wonder how much I’ll get back in my tax return this year—maybe a billion, like Richard promised!—and then I plot exactly how I will spend it all.

This is what I’ve come up with, because filing your taxes is no fun but tax returns are really quite lovely.
