The average taxpayer received a refund of $2,797 last year, according to the IRS. While many chose to sock away these funds, others put this “extra money” toward a big-ticket item like a mortgage payment, vacation and even – you guessed it – plastic surgery!
A new survey conducted by RealSelf.com notes that 13 percent of respondents said they used all or part of their previous tax refunds to pay for a plastic surgery or cosmetic procedure. A full one-third of those surveyed said they actually scheduled their procedures to coincide with their scheduled refund.
This year, about 20 percent of people surveyed said they planned to use their refunds to help fund a procedure. This money is going toward some of today’s most popular procedures, including rhinoplasty, hair transplants for men, breast augmentation and liposuction.
