  • Giveaway: 2 TurboTax web cards (free federal & state preparation + e-file fees)

    This giveaway rewards the procrastinators who haven’t filed their tax returns yet. I am giving away two prepaid access codes for TurboTax Premier Online. Each code includes one free federal and state preparation and e-file fees, and is valued at approximately $85.

    TurboTax wants to reward those with a sense of humor, so they’ve asked me to collect your favorite April Fool’s jokes. (Maybe someone over there is looking for ideas?) So to enter, simply leave a comment with your favorite April Fool’s joke or story and a way to contact you easily. (In other words, if you’re not a blogger, leave your email address – I’ll delete the comments after the giveaway is over to thwart the spam-bots. If you’re a blogger, make sure I can easily locate your blog and through your blog, your contact info.) Enter as many times as you like, so long as you have a different joke or story. (Be sure to leave your contact info each time.)

    If you don’t have a joke or funny story, you can still enter if you’re subscribed to CFO via RSS or email – just leave a comment telling me you’re a subscriber. Or, enter by spreading the word about this contest – tell a friend, tweet about the giveaway, Stumble this post, write about it on your own blog, etc. Then let me know about it by leaving a comment.

    I’ll select the winners using Random.org and announce them here on CFO as well as contact them by email. The winner will have 48 hours to respond, otherwise their prize will be forfeited and a new winner will be selected.

    The giveaway ends at 6:00 p.m. PST on Tuesday, March 31.

    And while you’re entering contests, through April 1, you can enter TurboTax’s Super Status contest, which has lots of different prizes – right now, you can win a trip to the U.S. Open (golf, not tennis).

    7. In the not-mean-but-silly vein of April Fool’s fun, we have a family dinner where we swap forks and spoons for cooking utensils, like spatulas, pasta spoons, ladles and meat forks. It’s hilarious!

    9. I haven’t pulled an April Fools joke on anyone in ages, but my favorite one as a kid was to replace the yolk of a halved hard-boiled egg with appropriately-colored PlayDoh, and leave it sitting in the kitchen. Within the next half hour there’d inevitably be a “heyyyyy! eww!” from a family member who decided to take a bite. I’d think this would also be a good way of deterring lunch thieves at the office.
