TaxAct Extends Best Deal in Tax with Launch of 'Premium Finish'
Leading DIY Online Tax Preparation Company Gives Race Fans a Chance to Save Big this Tax Season
KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (March 15, 2016) – TaxAct, the official tax preparation software partner of Stewart-Haas Racing and NASCAR driver Danica Patrick, will return to the track this weekend for the Auto Club 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race Sunday in Fontana, California. To celebrate the 2016 debut of the No. 10 TaxAct Chevrolet SS and gear up for the end of tax season, TaxAct has joined forces with SHR to give race fans another opportunity to save money when filing their taxes with the launch of "Premium Finish."
Staying true to its longstanding tradition of being the best deal in tax, TaxAct is offering race fans the chance to purchase its top-tier online tax preparation and filing solution at a highly discounted price. If Patrick or any member of the SHR team grabs a top-10 finish in select upcoming races, fans can register to file their 2015 federal and state tax returns using the TaxAct Online Premium Bundle for only $10* (originally priced at $49.98). This gives filers access to the federal and state forms needed to complete their return no matter how complex their situation, all in, for $10*. In the event none of the SHR drivers finish in the top-10 in those selected races, a $10 discount* off federal returns will be extended to honor the savings opportunity.
"We've always believed taxpayers should be able to file their own taxes without paying high prices, and this is just another way for us to showcase our commitment to providing an affordable solution," said JoAnn Kintzel, president, TaxAct. "We're excited to cheer on the entire Stewart-Haas Racing team this weekend and look forward to multiple top-10 finishes."
Tax filers can get a "Premium Finish" starting Sunday with the running of the Auto Club 400, with applicable discounted pricing available through the following Saturday*. TaxAct will offer additional opportunities for NASCAR fans to file returns with "Premium Finish" pricing for the races following the Auto Club 400 up to the tax filing deadline on April 18, 2016 (or April 19, 2016 for residents of Massachusetts and Maine). These races include:
STP 500 at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway on Sunday, April 3
Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth on Saturday, April 9
Food City 500 at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway on Sunday, April 17
Fans can lock in their "Premium Finish" price by visiting TaxAct.com. With TaxAct's Price Lock Guarantee, filers are guaranteed to pay the price offered at the time they register, no matter when they choose to file.
"Choosing to file your taxes with TaxAct is a no-brainer," Patrick said. "The company has always been the best deal in tax and their new ‘Premium Finish' simply sweetens the deal. I'm glad we can help the NASCAR community discover how easy and affordable filing your own taxes can be with TaxAct."
TaxAct will be the primary sponsor on Patrick's No. 10 Chevrolet for a total of four races this season and an associate sponsor for all non-primary races.
