Well, it's now February, and you should have received all of your W-2s and 1099s for tax year 2012. It is time to file your federal and New Jersey tax return. It has been a rough year, but it looks like you will be getting a refund. Great! If you don't already have it spent, allow me to make a suggestion.
Put That Refund to Good Use
If 2012 was a struggle financially because of mounting credit card debt, insurmountable medical bills, or a student loan balance you don't think you can ever put a dent in, then maybe you need a fresh start for 2013. Put that refund money to good use by filing bankruptcy and/or restructuring your student loans into an affordable payment plan.
I know, you had better plans for that money. Perhaps a new flatscreen TV or an iPad. But bankruptcy, whether through chapter 7 or chapter 13, can lift a huge financial burden off your shoulders. It can give you a more long term quality of life.
Also, if you have federal student loans, getting out of a deferment or forbearance and into an affordable payment plan, or just lifting a wage garnishment and getting out of default, can give you a brighter future.
