New Bundle of Joy May Be Worth a Bundle
TurboTax Offers $5,000 Savings Bond for America's Cutest Last-Minute Tax Deduction
SAN DIEGO – Dec. 18, 2007 – Your year-end bundle of joy could be worth a bundle in the new year. TurboTax®, the nation's No. 1 rated, best-selling tax preparation software, is conducting a nationwide search for America's Cutest Last-Minute Tax Deduction. One lucky baby, born between Dec. 1-31, will win a United States savings bond worth $5,000 face value, up to $10,000 upon maturity, courtesy of Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU), parent company of TurboTax.
Babies born before the year ends are more than a welcome addition to families – they are also a last-minute tax deduction, worth up to a $1,000 credit on their 2007 taxes, according to Bob Meighan, a certified public accountant and vice president with TurboTax.
"Whether you've just had a baby or adopted, you're likely to qualify for additional tax deductions," said Meighan. "A new child may qualify you for the earned income tax credit or, if you pay for child care so you can work, you can earn a credit of $600 to $1,050. If you're not sure about what you can claim, TurboTax makes it easy to get every deduction."
To enter the contest, parents or legal guardians should submit a photo of their newest last-minute tax deduction at www.CutestTaxDeduction.com. To be eligible, babies must be born between Dec. 1-31, 2007. Entries must be submitted by Jan. 9, 2008. Further details, rules and eligibility are available at www.CutestTaxDeduction.com.
