Tax Filing Double Cash Back

If you are procrastinating on filing your taxes, then Ebates has a deal for you!  Right now they are offering double cash back from many Tax Prep sites and other financial online tools (like quicken).  Cash back amount is based off your filing fees.

In case you needed a reminder… you have 6 days left to file.

If you are wondering why in the world taxes are due on the 18th this year??

Tax Day falls on April 15 unless that day happens to be on a Saturday, Sunday or federal holiday.   None of these rules apply.

For 2011, Washington, D.C., will celebrate Emancipation Day on April 15. This marks the anniversary of the day that President Lincoln signed the Compensated Emancipation Act.  So the federal tax is being moved so D.C. can enjoy their day.

Never knew, but hey you procrastinators have a few extra days!

      Ebates is a site that you sign up for and if you buy things online you can get cash back on the things you purchase. You only get the cash back by clicking on the site you intended to buy from through Ebates.

      Example…. if I wanted to buy something from Ebay instead of going to Ebay.com directly I would go to Ebates click on Ebay it would then take me to Ebay’s site and I would earn say 2% back of what i purchased.

      It has nothing to do with the IRS or Gov so no it would not help lower what you owe to the Gov. it would just help lower the end cost of say the software you were going to use online to do your taxes by giving money back like a rebate hence the name Ebates (online rebate). Payments are made through check or PayPal.

      As the wife of a CPA, I think this is absolutely ridiculous! All it does is add an extra weekend that he will have to work!

      • Michelle

        I agree as the fiancee of a CPA! This gives people another 3 days to take up his time!

        Sorry, I disagree….as an employee of a CPA firm, it just extends our season increasing our cash flow and prolonging our job security. My CPA loves his job and we are all happy the season is lasting a little longer. Anyone that comes in after 3/31 is an automatic extension and just gives us a longer time frame to work.

      I've never heard of Ebates. How does it work? Also, what if you owe the IRS money? Is it possible that it will reduce the amount that you owe to the IRS?

      I think it is saying the Fee for the tax preparer company will pay double % from ebates. It caught my eye too, but with our big tax refund this year from me not working – I really had to think no one would double that!

      isn't April 15 on Friday? Today is Wednesday, April 13. That makes April 15 on Friday.

    • Had mine done yesterday (only because I have to work Wed, Thur, Fri and next Mon)

      so, if i want to file using turbo tax free online file, it says “7.5% cash back”
      can some nice person explain to me what this means please?
      my husband is going to finish our file today, but if we can get an extra 7% I will hault him quickly.

        When you go through ebates they will give you 7.5% in a rebate check. The 7.5% is of the cost of the tax preparation service. If they charge you say $50.00 then ebates will give you 7.5% of that back or $3.75 in your ebates account. Once a quarter they will mail out a check directly to your home as long as you have your account set up to have it mail out.

        I hope this helps.

          oh, ok. thank you. So then I would get nothing if I pay nothing to file. thanks!
