TaxAct Launches Race to Your Refund Sweepstakes

Leading DIY Online Tax Preparation Company Builds Excitement for 2016 NASCAR Season with Opportunity for Race Fans to Win an Exclusive VIP Race Experience with Danica Patrick

Kannapolis, NC – January 5, 2016 – As Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) prepares for the start of the 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, TaxAct, the official tax preparation software partner of SHR and driver Danica Patrick, has launched the Race to Your Refund Sweepstakes. Race fans can now enter the Race to Your Refund Sweepstakes for a chance to win a number of prizes, including an exclusive 2017 VIP Daytona race experience featuring Patrick and SHR co-owner Tony Stewart.

"TaxAct does a great job of engaging NASCAR fans and the Race to Your Refund program is another strong example of their efforts," Patrick said. "The sweepstakes provides an opportunity for our fans to have some fun and connect with TaxAct, all while helping them to get the best deal when they file their own income tax return."

The Race to Your Refund Sweepstakes runs through Nov. 20, 2016 and U.S. residents can visit to enter. The sweepstakes consists of 46 entry periods with winners selected at random for prizes at the end of each period. As part of the sweepstakes, individuals have the opportunity to complete their own NASCAR bracket by selecting Patrick's finishing position in upcoming races. Throughout the interactive game, entrants can guess where Patrick will place in each race, accumulating points to see how their bracket compares to other NASCAR fans.

Entrants will have the chance to win everything from a variety of Patrick-autographed merchandise, TaxAct-branded apparel and NASCAR tickets, which will be awarded monthly and weekly starting in March. In November, one lucky winner will be selected for the ultimate grand prize: a 2017 Daytona race weekend VIP experience for the biggest race of the NASCAR season, featuring both Patrick and Stewart. TaxAct will notify winners by e-mail shortly after the date of each drawing.

"Teaming with Danica gives us the valuable opportunity to connect with a loyal fan base of NASCAR enthusiasts who share the same 'You Got This' spirit as TaxAct," said TaxAct President JoAnn Kintzel. "This new sweepstakes is a fun and interactive way to give back to our customers, as well as fans of Danica, while continuing to make do-it-yourself tax filing fast, easy and affordable."
