Tax season has officially passed, as tax day was April 15. Some shops are expecting a little extra business because of tax refunds, shoppers told us what they were doing with their extra money.
Jordan Walker, a 26-year-old resident of Meridian, is planning on getting new shoes.
“These Jordan shoes man, they have some new ones coming out every week. I’m going to get some good ones one of these weeks, because Lord knows I can’t buy some every week.” Walker said. “I will also probably get my car fixed up, too. I was waiting for this refund to come around so I could finally do that.” Walker said.
Lara Hincapie, a 33-year-old resident, wants to spend more time at Comerica ballpark.
“I really do love baseball, just the spring weather and getting out to the ballpark, so I hope to go there more with this refund.” Hincapie said. “I also think I will save some of it, too, I probably don’t have enough money in savings as it is.” Hincapie said.
Alex Kivtne, a 43-year-old resident, wants to spoil his wife with his refund.
“The saying is happy wife, good life, so I going to make sure that happens.” Kivtne said. “I think maybe a coupon or a gift card to some pedicure or manicure place might do the trick. You can’t go wrong with candy, too.” Kivtne said.
