Using Your Tax Refund for a Down Payment?
Here Are Some Great Buys!
While tax season can be stressful, you might also be getting a refund which is exciting! If you’re thinking about using your tax refund for a down payment on a vehicle, there are some great purchase options for under 30K.
How to gather your down payment
There’s a lot to consider when setting aside money for a down payment. You won’t want to totally deplete your savings, but you also want to put enough down that the car payment makes sense for your monthly budget. First, consider how much of your tax return you want to put toward the down payment. It might be part or all. Then, think about other areas where you may be able to collect money for this purpose. Stimulus checks are on their way for some and if you have a vehicle to trade-in that can help, too! You might be able to use a combination of sources to collect an appropriate down payment, and you might not need to use all your tax refund depending on the vehicle you select.

What else should you consider?
You could lease
You don’t have to buy. You could also use your tax return for a down payment on a lease. A lease isn’t right for everyone, but if you can stay within the mileage parameters and you think you might want to drive a newer model in a few years, a lease is a great option.
Don’t forget electric vehicle incentives
California offers the Clean Vehicle Rebate Program, which gives buyers up to $7,000 on the purchase or lease of a new qualifying vehicle. Your dealership should be able to help you determine if your vehicle will meet the program requirements. This rebate could be a big help toward the cost of your vehicle. Plus, not only are electric, hybrid and fuel-cell vehicles better for the environment, but you’ll save money on fuel costs as well!
