Guest post by America Saves
It’s always a pleasure to share my blog with like-minded friends. America Saves is a respected organization whose goal is to change as many lives as possible with their #SaveYourRefund campaign. With the 2019 tax season underway, America Saves reminds tax payers your tax refund is the perfect windfall to start or grow an emergency fund.
Please share with others the value of the SaveYourRefund campaign and learn how you can get involved, too.
Partner with SaveYourRefund to Promote Tax Time Savings!
Nearly half of all Americans don’t have enough savings to cope with even small emergencies. Yet more than 100 million taxpayers get refunds from the IRS each year. For many individuals and families, that tax refund is the largest check that they will receive all year, and the perfect windfall to start or grow an emergency fund.
In the 2019 tax season, SaveYourRefund will once again offer tax filers the chance to win cash prizes for saving a portion of their tax refunds. Now in its seventh year, SaveYourRefund is a partnership between Commonwealth and America Saves that provides fun and exciting incentives for Americans to save at tax time, when households making less than $53,000 claim $100 billion in federal tax refunds. A chance to win one of two $10,000 grand prizes or one of the 100 prizes of $100 is enough to turn a saving skeptic into a savings believer.
We encourage all of you to sign up as a SaveYourRefund partner for the 2019 tax season. Some Partners work directly with clients to offer free tax preparation services. Other Partners help us by spreading the word and promoting SaveYourRefund in their communities. By signing up as a Partner, you will receive communications about the promotion leading up to and during tax season, including information on trainings, promotional materials, progress updates (including data from entries from your tax sites), and inspiring saver stories.
