One way to make a tax refund pay real dividends is to invest in New Orleans auto care.
It's spring. While we might want to turn our attention to being outdoors and doing other fun things – the Bourbon Festival, perhaps - we're forced instead to think about one of the few certainties in life. That's right. Income taxes.
We hope you're one of the lucky ones who doesn't owe anything to the IRS. Or one of the really lucky ones who expects a refund. If so, you might be thinking of all the things you could do with the money. But before you splurge, consider investing it in New Orleans auto care. As the non-profit Car Care Council reminds, regular preventive care is like money in the bank.
"With proper care, the typical vehicle should deliver at least 200,000 miles of safe, dependable performance. The most common routine maintenance procedures and repairs include checking the oil, filters and fluids, belts and hoses, brakes, tires and the HVAC system," the council says.
The council also recommends an annual tune-up and wheel alignment.
“According to the Internal Revenue Service, the average tax refund is over $3,100. By simply allocating a portion to vehicle maintenance and service, you will realize big dividends in the form of safety and dependability,” said Rich White, the council's executive director. “The benefits of auto care don’t stop there. Your vehicle will perform more efficiently, saving money at the pump, and its useful life will be extended, postponing the major expense of purchasing a new car.”
It's time to consult the New Orleans auto care specialists at Twin Tire Auto Care. Twin Tire has been the trusted New Orleans auto care and auto repair specialist since 1973.

(We also want to remind you that, if you do go to the Bourbon Festival, have fun. But don't drink and drive.)
