I fondly look back on the days when I received an annual tax refund from the IRS thanks to the interest paid on my condo. Logically I know that it was money I had already paid being returned to me, but it felt like a bonus every year.
With my income now tied to Stonemaier Games, those days are long gone, but I understand that a lot of people (nearly 80% of Americans) still look forward to their tax refunds each year. Unfortunately, if you’re in the US, it’s quite possible that the current government shutdown will delay those refunds.
What does this have to do with Kickstarter? Well, a curious creator (Loren at WIBAI Games) asked me if they thought the refund delay would impact backer behavior (not to mention the many government employees who aren’t getting paychecks right now). If so, the creator is considering an adjustment to their launch date.
I thought this was an interesting question, so I thought I would pose it to my fellow backers. Feel free to answer in the anonymous poll and/or elaborate in the comments below.
