NRF has been conducting its annual Tax Returns Survey since 2007 to gauge consumer spending and saving behavior related to U.S. income tax returns.

2017: Consumers plan to save their tax refunds for later

A record low number of Americans will spend their tax returns this year while the second-highest number on record will put the money into savings, according to the annual tax return survey released today by NRF and Prosper Insights. Rather than using the money for everday expenses, big-ticket purchases like a TV or splurging on a night out, almost half of consumers plan to save it for later. View the survey highlights.
