Fortunately, TV Financial Expert and best-selling author Patrice Washington has some valuable information about surviving tax season.

SUGGESTIONS FOR SPENDING REFUNDS
It is smart to put tax refunds to good use by protecting oneself, family and assets by creating an estate plan. Do it online now, with a company like TrustandWill.com. They make it simple to create a fully customizable Will in as little as 10 minutes for only $69. It also includes Power of Attorney and Health Documents which are especially important during these current times. Homeowners or people who have over $150,000 in assets, should consider setting up a Trust-based estate plan which not only includes a Will, Power of Attorney and Health Documents, but also avoids the Probate process which can be months long and expensive process.
