Cedar Rapids, IA – January 13, 2015 – TaxACT®, the official tax preparation service partner of Danica Patrick and Stewart-Haas Racing, is teaming up with GoDaddy as a co-primary sponsor for Danica Patrick's No. 10 Chevrolet in several key races this year. The partnership starts with Daytona's Speed Week February 14 and includes the February Sprint Unlimited in Daytona and in Martinsville this March.
TaxACT is the maker of do-it-yourself digital tax filing solutions that help millions of Americans file their taxes. TaxACT is easy, fast and free.
"Our GoDaddy team and TaxACT are a natural fit because we each share values like teamwork, confidence and a ‘get it done' attitude,” Danica said.
The 2015 TaxACT sponsorship debuts during tax season when consumers are filing their annual income tax returns. "The team at Stewart-Haas Racing approached us because their research showed TaxACT, as a company and a culture, aligned with the sport's qualities of determination, speed and passion,” said TaxACT President JoAnn Kintzel.
Like Danica's long-time primary sponsor, GoDaddy, both companies boast millions of customers and a "can do” spirit. Customers are independent and motivated to succeed on their own terms and choose TaxACT and GoDaddy to save money, empower themselves, and get ahead.
"Get ready for some NASCAR-style marketing and exciting times,” said GoDaddy Chief Marketing Officer Barb Rechterman. "Our customers and Danica's fans really do embody the ‘You Got This' spirit of TaxACT and GoDaddy. We're going to help a whole lot more people get through tax season and have some fun along the way!”
