Make a Budget
Having your tax return gives you a few different options to implement into your travel budget.

This can range from paying for airfare or car rental, or incorporating it into the cost of your booking.
With Hilton as well as other timeshare companies, you are subject to a booking fee either online or over the phone, so having your tax return funds available can mitigate some of those smaller costs you will encounter when booking your vacation.
Pay Your Maintenance Fees
Additionally, you are able to use your tax return to pay for any maintenance fees associated with your timeshare property. This can include the annual maintenance fees, monthly costs, or your membership fee through your timeshare company. This allows you to budget strictly for your vacation itself, with your tax return able to take care of fees and secondary costs.
