In 2011, over half of tax payers received a refund, with an average yield of over $3,000.  For many Americans, this payment may be the largest lump sum received during the year.  Although it might be tempting to spend your tax refund on something fun, it is important to develop a plan to use the refund to help meet financial goals for 2012.

  • Septic systems are used in Kentucky where municipal sewage treatment is not available. They are an effective, long-standing method of collecting, treating and disposing of homeowner wastewater, provided they are properly sited and installed. However, a well-sited, properly sized and installed system will fail if not properly maintained. A failed septic system creates problems such as noxious odors, lower property values, surface water contamination and groundwater pollution and may be a health hazard. Repair and replacement costs are considerable.
