Weekend Ramblings and PF Blog Love: H&R Block Tax Software Giveaway Edition

Yessiree Bob, it’s TAX TIME again!  I’m getting my T4’s, T3’s and T5’s in and anticipating my glorious refund.  I am hoping it’s hefty!  I’ve definitely jumped a tax bracket this year and I hope that I have enough deductions to keep my net income for 2010 below the said tax bracket.  This year, I won’t make the mistake of jumping the gun and I’ll wait until I make sure I get everything sent to me before I send off my tax return.  I ended up having about 2 Reassessments done last year because I didn’t get all my tax receipts…the reassessments were for my benefit, but it was still a hassle.  Speaking of taxes and tax preparation….

Finally, I’ve got something the give away just for youngandthrifty.ca’s American readers!  H&R Block approached me to see if I was interested in giving away 6 free redemption codes of H&R Block At Home Premium Edition online Tax Prepration for US Tax Returns (the Premium Edition- worth a whopping $49.95!) for federal returns.  It includes sales tax, so that’s actually worth $55 each code!  So we’re actually giving away $330 worth of stuff from H&R Block.

According to H&R Block, this edition is: “For most tax payers, including homeowners, investors, the self-employed and rental property owners.”

All H&R Block tax prep solutions include:

  • Maximum refund guarantee – finds all the deductions and credits you’re entitled to
  • Free federal e-filing – get your refund in as few as eight days
  • Accurate calculations guarantee and free audit support
  • Easy importing of your W-2, 1099 and last year’s info (even if H&R Block didn’t do your taxes)

With the codes, you can start working on your return here, and when you complete it, you will be prompted for payment.  There will be an option to enter a key code for payment.  That key code will be yours if you win the giveaway!  Each state tax filing is an additional $34.95 though, if you want to file your state taxes.  As you probably know, taxes for the USA are due April 18 this year.

A few other PF bloggers were hosting the same giveaway too (including Bucksome Boomer, Consumerism Commentary, Moolanomy, Wealth Informatics, & Digerati Life, but I think the prizes are already drawn and I’m actually the last of the batch, so if you want to win, here’s your chance!

To enter the giveaway:

All you got to do is to subscribe to youngandthrifty.ca and leave a comment (it can be a comment of what you ate for lunch today, if you want… I just need your email address).  If you already subscribe, THANK YOU,  you just need to please leave a comment and I’ll enter you.  Also, one important thing to note is that you have to be filing US taxes.  Just in case you didn’t read it above.

6 winners will be chosen via random.org

The contest closes March 3, 2011 at midnight PST and I will announce the winner March 4, 2011.

Good luck!

    • @The Passive Income Earner- I think last year, I had a slip that came to me after April 30! They apologized for the late slip though (I believe it was from the sale of my flow through shares). Waiting until last minute drives the anal-retentive organized part of me insane.. but necessary :)

  1. I don’t subscribe via email, but I do subscribe via RSS– does that count? :-) I’ve always just done taxes by hand, on paper, but this past year we may consider doing itemized instead of standard deductions, and we have some less-straightforward sources of income (stock options) to figure in. This software may just be the ticket to ensuring we get everything filed properly! :-)

    • @Helly- Subscribing by RSS is fine and counts 100%! :) I think you’re the one and only entrant so far, so I think it would be safe to say you’re a sure win for the prize! If no one else enters, feel free to have the other codes too :) (you can give them to your friends). It’s the least I can do for your fantastic, well written answer to railroad tycoon 😉

  2. My pleasure :-) I think what really irked me more than anything was his tone. He’s entitled to his opinion and to disagreeing with your investment choices, but first of all, they are none of his business, and second of all, there are far classier, more tactful, more constructive ways to express that viewpoint and actually get some dialogue going, instead of just attacking you and calling you dumb. People that resort to name-calling often don’t have anything concrete to back up their claims.

    • @Helly- Yeah… I think people feel that because they are anonymous and on the internet, they can be rude and crass and resort to name calling. I definitely agree that people are entitled to their opinions, and agree that it can be expressed in a more constructive way.

    • @Financial Uproar- lol, but you’re preventing your dad from getting old and senile by letting him do your taxes! So he’s actually benefiting, in the long run. :) You should tell him that next time you see him 😉
