6 Brilliant Money Moves To Make In March
If you want to make the most of March financially, there are things you need to do now to make it happen
March 1 – 15 – Attain College Money
Deadlines for higher education financial aid and grants occur during the first half of the month. Make sure to review the FAFSA website to learn when your state’s aid deadline is.
March 1 – 15 – Make An Appointment To See Your Doctor
If you have money in your healthcare flexible spending account for 2016, it’s time to see your doctor. Employees typically have until March 15 to use that money, or they lose it. There are some employers who allow you to roll the money over into the next year, but you’ll need to talk with your company’s HR to learn if this is an option.
March 5 – 12 – Flood Insurance
This is the time of year to get flood insurance. Flood insurance will go in effect 30 days from the time you sign up. Don’t be caught unawares.
March 15 – Pay Taxes On Your Small Business
If you have an S corporation, you need to deal with your small business taxes.
March 17 – 24 – Look At Sweet Deals
Between Valentine’s Day and Easter is a lull for chocolate brands like Lindt and Ghirardelli. These companies tend to offer half-off deals on certain sweet foods.
March 19 – 31 – Get A New Job
This is especially true if you want a career in the medical or technology field. March is one of the three busiest hiring months – followed by January and October.
