Malvern Bank's "Money Matters"

Money Matters: Never put off till tomorrow...

April 8, 2022


Who hasn’t procrastinated filing their taxes?

Now it seems the IRS is even pushing the deadline — in issuing your refund.

Millions of taxpayers’ refunds are delayed this year, and the IRS has admitted that tax returns are piling up. The Forbes article below can tell you more about how this could affect you in the coming weeks.

It’s really common to procrastinate about money tasks, especially if negative emotions are involved, but procrastination could cost you in the long run.

That’s where Malvern Bank can help. Working together, we can prioritize your goals and break down tasks into smaller, more manageable chunks. Doing so turns intimidating deadlines into achievable, realistic goals — and increases your confidence as well.

For example, if you’ve been waiting for the right Home Equity Line of Credit, you’re in luck! Malvern offers a unique, six-month introductory fixed rate of 2.25% APR* on a HELOC. Repayment during that period is interest only. There’s no annual fee, and the closing fee is just $150. For more information, contact Georgette Krick, Malvern’s Senior Vice President of Retail Banking, at

Check out the New York Times article for the science behind beating procrastination. I’ve included some additional articles for insight and advice as well.

I’d love to hear what you think!
