I've decided my tax money is going to be my ENTIRE Jeeping budget this year ... 2011 I spent much more than that on upgrades, wheeling, etc. Likely going to have to pay someone to do the cooling system and u joints.
New Cooling system (sans radiator) - already have parts
Front U joints - already have parts
Front left wheel bearing - already have
Change front/rear diff fluid - already have
Rear DS U Joints
Spare tire / wheel
2000 XJ - 3.5'' Lift & Skinny Mudders.

I get a barrel of money back from my student credit breaks, and other ludacris tax breaks in Massachusetts for students. Family pays for school, so I get a lot of that back in my name which works out for me well.
My WK gets about 5k a year on maintaining the durability, components and I wouldn't even want to calculate the gas. I wouldn't wait for tax time if I really wanted something for my Jeep anyways...but I will wait for those two listed above, because with the right amount of money they are both a ton of fun.
You could always adjust your withholding so you get your money all year and don't give the federal government an interest-free loan...
Exactly. give it a couple years, do the math, with how many get "refunds" (hard to get a $3000 refund when you didnt pay 3K into the system) and how much the fed is spending, those checks might not be good. Happened in California, and their economy is just as bad as the feds.
