Tax season is quickly approaching. If you’re one of the more than 60 million Americans who will receive a tax return this year, only one question remains. What should you spend your tax return on? For many, tax return season is like a second Christmas. You can finally purchase that big screen television or take a family trip to some exotic, far-flung location. Other from frugal filers will likely store away their hard earned cash in a nest egg or savings account. While thousands will simply deposit their return in an account reserved for a “Rainy Day,” millions of Americans are ignoring the dangers of that ominous “Stormy Day” that looms on the horizon. Tornadoes continue to increase annually with these whirlwinds of destruction touching down in new cities and towns daily. Meteorologists agree the traditional “storm season,” as we know it, will no longer have a beginning or end. We all will find ourselves in harm’s way at some point in our lifetime. Instead of wasting your tax return at some “Big Box” store, make the mature decision. Consider using your tax return to pay for a tornado shelter.
Tornado Shelters are the True Life Insurance Policy
During any given year, 80 million Americans will sit down with their families to have a very difficult conversation. “Should we buy life insurance?” It’s a sound investment. You want to leave your loved ones with enough cash to foot funeral costs and outstanding bills. If you’re a clever financial planner, you might’ve even left a little bit extra to soften the blow of losing a loved one. But let’s stop for a second to consider why people pay for life insurance. Many people pay premiums for extended care for a variety of reasons, including safeguards against the unexpected. But what does that mean? Sure, healthy living and regular doctor checkups go a long way toward living a long, productive and fulfilling life. Despite these provisions for protection, a host of insidious variables surround us that we have little control over. We can’t change the weather or the whims of Mother Nature. With tornadoes claiming more lives than ever before, homeowners are faced with some inconvenient truths. What if a tornado strikes your community and claims the life of you or a loved one. Sure, a life insurance policy could provide a nice little padding for your family, but if there is another way? What if you could use your tax return to pay for a tornado shelter?
Protection from Killer Storms and Conniving Criminals
Tornado shelters can completely change the conversation of life and death. Instead of paying premiums for a policy that might not pay out, why not invest in proven protection. Why do we live in such a pessimistic society? Why are we always planning for the worst when we can head off these threats with technological advancements. Fifty years ago, a storm cellar or basement was your best bet at surviving a tornado. Even then, your chances of rising from the debris were less than ideal. Today, we’ve engineered a line of above-ground and below ground tornado shelters that have withstood a battery of tests and meet FEMA safety measures. The time has come to make an investment on some real and tangible. Invest in a steel welded tornado shelter. When those refund checks come out in April, use your tax return to pay for a tornado shelter.
