Plan for Financial Freedom, Not Failure

Whether you’re interested in purchasing a new car, when buying a new Subaru at Serra Subaru Akron this tax season, plan for financial freedom when you use these tips: 


1. Lower your monthly auto payments: Use your W-2 to lower monthly auto payments when you combine your return with additional savings. With a downpayment of 20% or more, you can significantly lower the interest rate earned by your lender. 

2. Gain a head start on your monthly loan payments: Rather than using your W-2 as a downpayment, you can use your return to pay into your monthly payments. Being ahead on monthly payments means less personal income being spent on the vehicle. 

Pay down the principal on a loan: Using your W-2 to pay down the principal on a loan can also reduce the amount of personal income awarded to your lender. 

4. Refinance your auto loan: When you opt to refinance your auto loan, you can also save on monthly loan payments. To avoid going upside-down on your vehicle, you can apply for a loan with a lower interest rate and include your W-2 to diminish the loan itself.
