Get Financially Fit! | SaveYourRefund

Posted: February 4, 2016

Tax season is here! Are you expecting a refund? Do you plan to save a portion? Each year during tax time, tax filers receiving a refund have an opportunity to set aside savings. Many Americans do not realize that the IRS has created a specific form built right into the tax filing process that enables all American tax filers to automatically save a portion of their tax refund with one simple step. Form 8888 enables this seamless and near universal opportunity to save.

BONUS! Doorways to Dreams (D2D) Fund and America Saves are offering  SaveYourRefund as a simple, innovative, and fun program focused on a crucial and universal but often stressful moment in people’s lives — filing taxes. Through SaveYourRefund, all tax filers 18 and older who use Form 8888 to save a portion of their tax refund can enter a promotion for a chance to win one of 100 prizes of $100. They can also enter the photo contest for a chance to win the grand prize of $25,000. The combined financial incentive, “game-like” feel and low barrier to entry create the best mix to incentivize savings.
