Have you done your taxes yet? I can hear some of you groaning already. It’s now mid-April and that means one thing: the tax filing deadline is quickly approaching! If you live in the US, you have until this Thursday, April 15th to file. That’s not much time at all.
Thankfully, there’s pretty good online tax filing software available for US residents including TurboTax, TaxACT, and H&R Block At Home (for Canadians, QuickTax is a good one). Check out the reviews of each.
And in order to promote the benefits of quick and easy online tax filing, the Money Crashers personal finance blog is holding an awesome contest giving away 3 brand new Apple iPads.
Here’s how you can win one of these hot new gadgets:
First, check out the Online Tax Filing 2010 Giveaway page on MoneyCrashers.com. To enter, all you need to do is sign up for the contest mailing list. In addition, you can perform certain fun social actions on the site in order to gain entries for the random drawing of 3 iPads on April 16th.
