Received Tax Refund should I pay off one large collection account or several small accounts
I am trying to repair my credit and now that I have received a tax refund check I would like to be responsible with it. I have several accounts showing as collections on my credit report and wonder which will be more beneficial to my credit report, paying off one large ($1200) account or 4 to 5 small accounts? I would like to do whichever will have the most significant effect on my credit score.
