So Peanut and I finally got around to doing our taxes this weekend -- another year of paying although luckily we didn't have to pay any penalties for self-employment taxes, just the taxes themselves.

If you follow me on Twitter, you might remember that I won a code to do our taxes for free on TurboTax Online Deluxe from My Next Buck. Unfortunately, Peanut's freelance business meant TurboTax kicked us out of Deluxe and into I've got a code to give away!

TurboTax Online Deluxe is recommended for returning TurboTax customers or anyone who has a lot of deductions to maximize (like if you own a home or are not taking the standard deduction or whatever).  Anyone in that boat?

To enter, leave a comment here and tell me what you're hoping to do with your refund. You can get a second entry for tweeting about the post and linking to @lilmsmoneybags in your tweet. One random winner will be picked on Thursday, March 31. US only (sorry!).

PS - rather than pay the full TurboTax fee, Peanut and I did some searching and found that our bank offers us 25% off the fee to file federal. Lots of institutions do this, so if you haven't filed yet look for a code before you do!


  1. I'm not going to get a refund (at least I don't think I will)! If I end up with a refund, then I will probably just toss it into my home fund. I need to make a few updates before I try to sell my condo next year.

  3. Not sure if I'm getting a refund or not, but if I do I'm putting it towards paying off my car!

  5. Definitely not expecting a refund, but if I did get one, I'd put it towards subleasing an apartment during my internship this summer!
