Can you believe it’s already 2013?  Before you know it, Tax Day will be here and you do NOT want to wait until the last minute to get your taxes done!  I don’t know about you, but when I get my taxes done, I want to (a) make sure they’re done the right way and (b) make sure they are done on time!  This is where H&R Block At Home can help.

The team at H&R Block At Home has tax software that allows families to do their taxes faster.  Plus, they provide access to live expert advice and they guarantee the best refund, whether taxes are straight forward, or more advanced – like self-employment or a new home.

But getting your taxes ready doesn’t have to be all seriousness – you can have some fun this year!  With tax filing season approaching, H&R Block At Home wants to get us thinking about the “fun” in refunds, by finding what moms and dads like us might do if we got some money – and time – back this year!

Starting at the beginning of January (on the 3rd), H&R Block At Home is giving away $20,000 each week for five weeks!  Plus, every day, there are chances to instantly win $100.  All it takes to be eligible is to go to the Dreamfund App on the H&R Block Facebook page and tell them what you might do with some extra money and time.  You’ll even get extra entries when you share the news with family and friends via a Facebook post or tweet.

I know for us I would like to go on a family vacation to San Diego this summer – with all 6 of the kids, Frank and myself.  I would love to stay at the Omni Hotel, check out Sea World, and more!  I would also like to be able to go to my sister’s wedding – whether it’s in Hawaii or Pismo Beach.  The other thing that is still on my bucket list and I have not yet done is go on a cruise!!!  Just me and Frank on a romantic get-away on a cruise to anywhere pretty much!  What would you do?
