Commit to Save at Tax Time

Are you expecting a tax refund this year? Before you mentally earmark where your refund dollars are going to go, make a commitment to save some of it. Saving a portion of your tax refund is an easy way to get ahead on bills, put something away for unexpected expenses, or to treat yourself down the road. Putting away even $100 now will come in handy when one of life’s curveballs comes your way; like a car registration or unplanned celebration or event.

Complete the precommitment form below and America Saves will provide you free savings supports like motivational emails and simple savings tips to help you stick to your savings commitment.

Happy saving!
