Tax time is stressful for most people – and when people are stressed these days, they vent on social media.
And even though we warned you that the IRS may be searching for tax cheats on Twitter, there was a LOT of tax chatter on the microblogging platform.
So what do you think most people had to say about the process? Happy, sad, hungry?
According to TurboTax, people’s reactions after they completed their taxes was overwhelmingly . . . happy. Out of a sample size of 1,000 tweets, only 31% were upset about their refunds.
How can this be? Well, the other side of the coin, the 69% that were positive, included “neutral” tweets – so it doesn’t mean people were dancing in the streets (or stweets).
You’ll note there were more people complaining about the amount of time it took to get their refund – though again, there were twice as many people tweeting their happiness (they had received their refunds already).
Probably the most telling piece of info presented though, was the data around spending sprees. The sum of all the info could lead to the following conclusion: Most of the people who tweet about tax refunds are those getting refunds – and most of them blow their money pretty immediately. Do you fit that profile?
