Income Tax Freebies! Get Free Stuff on Tax Day
The 2018 Tax Filing Deadline to file your income taxes in the US is Tuesday, April 17, 2018.
I’m happy it’s not April 15! We get a few extra days this year. WOO HOO!!
Are you done with your taxes?
I always wait. Well, I shouldn’t say I wait, because that’s not entirely true. I get a fairly early start. Some people start the year before because they get nice big returns and want the money for Christmas. I can’t say that I blame them! But, I haven’t gotten a tax return in several years. I always end up owing and have to pay in. Last year I even attempted to send in quarterly payments, and this year they sent me forms requiring that I send in quarterly payments! So much for volunteering. Ha!
I’ve used TurboTax for as long as it’s been a thing. I think I’ve only had my taxes done professionally once, years ago. I couldn’t see paying $40 or more to file an easy form. Back then I did file EZ, but oh how times have changed! Now I have a schedule C for business as well as retirement, investments, rental property. The list goes on and on.
Whether you owe or are getting a big return, you can celebrate with free stuff found in our big list of Free Stuff on Tax Day!
