Tax day was thirty days ago and if you waited until the last minute to file, you are probably receiving your check sometime soon if you expected a refund. Two-thirds (66.2%) of tax payers are expecting a refund this year, up from 65.5 percent last year, but down from the percentage expecting a refund in 2009 (68.4%). * It is always interesting to me to see how folks handle their payments and refunds to Uncle, State and City Sam. Take our short poll to tell us what you did with your refund and see how you measure up to the rest of America and their choices.
