Stop laughing, I’m serious.
Here’s why – I’m a parent of twins who pays more for daycare in one year than I do toward our mortgage. I’ve dreamt about tax deductions and tax returns since they were born, because in case you didn’t know, kids are expensive. Whether you have one or are rivaling the Duggars, kids have a lot of costs attached to them.
So as soon as all of our tax documents are in my hot little hands, I choose to hop online and file my taxes electronically. There are many websites offering reliable and secure tax return services, one of them being widely recognized TurboTax.
As an ECCU member, you receive a discount for using TurboTax online. And this year, we’ve teamed up with TurboTax to give you a chance to win your share of $25,000. Who couldn’t use that extra chunk of change? Ten $1,000 First Prizes and one $15,000 Grand Prize will be awarded, and there’s no purchase necessary*. All you need to do is create a TurboTax online account, or sign in to your existing account and provide your email address to automatically be entered to win. Don’t wait though, promotion ends February 26, 2015. Click here for complete details.
The great thing about TurboTax and other online or software tax preparation services is that you don’t have to pay anything until you’re ready to file. This means, you can log on and complete all of the sections, see how much of a refund you can expect (or how much you’ll owe…but let’s think positively here), and you don’t have to whip out that credit card until you’re ready to send it off for filing.
The TurboTax discount is just one of many discounts (and by many, I mean A TON) offered to ECCU members as part of Love My Credit Union Rewards. Enjoy discounts from General Motors, Sprint, DirectTV, Best Buy, Macy’s…just to name a few. View them all here.
Do you look forward to – or dread – tax season?
