Stephen did wise way to spend that bonus one what bonus not granting. See if you have been told yet hundreds yeah record Detroit. Other recent tax cuts in jobs acting Craig created by it enacted by congress has stimulated a number of companies to issue bonuses to their companies I'm sure you're to the employees rather I'm sure you've seen some of those. And the idea I don't need to tell you you know how to spend that money really but if your get an extra chunky cash I have some suggestions. That you might appreciate I'm like that uncle who tells you how you you do everything. With your life. Well the bonus will be added to your income so that means that date if you're getting 1000 bucks you'll only be able to spend about. You know that minus the federal state and local taxes so. I don't go out and order 1000 bucks worth of tools or clothing on eBay until you'd know the net amount to that you will be allowed to span. However if you put that money into a traditional Ira or 401K. It will be taxed it'll be tax free for the moment at least until you take that money out thirty years from now so. It's my first suggestion is put that poll thousand box away. Pretend that you didn't even get a bonus tax Pacquiao didn't know what was common anyway. You know use that money to add to your retirement account any invest for the long haul. You will thank me later because think about it is that gross to a few thousand bucks or more than that. You get that much more in retirement. Opt out some of that silly consumer debt that might be an idea for it if you like most Americans running a balance on your credit card. You probably don't you remember which is spent that money on. Paid down the debt so that it doesn't continue to grow line no that doesn't mean it does seem like any fun. But that debt may be keeping you up at night do it at least so you can sleep better. Or put that money and your emergency slush fund it is and have a double that there will be a minor emergency in the future. Either that transmission drops out of the minivan or not. House air conditioning stopped working on a 100 degree day you will need it sometime so relax a bit knowing at least you have some money there. So if you're one of the rare ones who has retirement emergency fund covered and no short term bad debt back. Spend it but not just on any thing. Some spending can be an investment for example using it for an update on maintenance of the house could increase a home's value so while you'll enjoy the update. It's an investment is well of course you have questions you give me call the number 6342222.
