So who is going to buy something fun with their tax refund?

Personally geting close to $4000 back and putting it towards a 7DmkII or 1Dx depending on the stats on the latter.

Does part of the down payment on a new vehicle count as 'fun'?   :P  I suppose not, but then, I fund all my gear purchases from 'on the side' consulting work - the day job income (and taxes refunded from that) go toward the important stuff - house, cars, kids' college and retirement funds, etc.

Given that with the latest tax changes we are about $1200 poorer every month, I do not believe I'll be buying anything. :(

I would say that sucks, but if you are loosing $1200 a month to a 2% tax increase I don't feel sorry for you.

I'm not sure the financial department will OK an AFE for camera gear.  Travel and kitchen reno will certainly come first.

It's a lot more than 2%.
