To Buy or Not to Buy? A Short Guide to Buying a Used Car with Your Tax Return

February 13th, 2017


Did you know that the average vehicle will have approximately three owners in its lifetime? That's right, used cars are actually quite common on the road today, and they're more cost effective than you might think! In fact, this time of year is one of the best to purchase high end used cars.

Tax season might seem like a strange time to purchase a vehicle, but the truth is that it's a smart time to do so, especially if a new car is on your list of 2017 goals. Here at Goodfella's Motor Company, our goal is to help you use that tax refund in the smartest way possible. Here's a short guide to help you get organized and put your tax refund towards a new vehicle.

Treat Your Money Wisely

Whether you've been planning on using your tax refund to purchase a car or not, this money should be treated like any other amount you've saved up in the past. Don't go spending it on things that you don't need!

Do Your Car Research

If you have any questions or need help deciding on a car, don't hesitate to do research at home or come on in to Goodfella's and talk to someone on our team. Finding the right car for you can be a long process, but the help of an expert who knows their way around clunkers and used luxury vehicles alike can be a huge asset.

Do Your Financial Research

As previously stated, finding the right car for you can be a long process. But if you can't find the right financing options, you're going to be in an even bigger pickle. Rather than doing research at home, find time to visit us here at Goodfella's and learn about all of the financing plans we offer for pre-owned cars for sale.

Why Buy Used?

As big as your tax refund may be, it may not make a big enough dent in a new car payment to mean anything. In contrast, your tax return could effectively cover your down payment for a used car. Here at Goodfella's, we're dedicated to helping you find the perfect car that has everything you need while still staying within your budget.
