Crazy Week for Me!
Hi Friends! So sorry I haven't been posting this week, but I've been so busy! I have a new job at Jackson Hewitt Tax Service. This week and next week, I'm working 40+ hours a week, and in between I'm finding great deals and printing coupons late at night and playing with my kids during the day. Oh, and running on a treadmill, since I'm also currently training for a marathon (check out my blog about that here!).
But never fear, I'll try to post a few great deals tonight! First off, Jackson Hewitt is offering $25 off your tax preparation. There are new tax laws this year that can help you get a great refund, so I highly recommend you see a tax professional to get your taxes prepared. The fees are usually higher than using an online service, but tax professionals will guarantee their work and provide audit assistance if you get audited by the IRS. Just make sure you use a coupon! Take it to the Jackson Hewitt Tax Service office across the street from McDonalds on the south side of Logan, or to the Jackson Hewitt office located at the front of the Walmart store on the north side of Logan. They'll even prepare your taxes while you shop!
