Turbo Tax's America's Cutest Last-Minute Tax Deduction Contest

TurboTax®’s second annual nationwide search for America’s Cutest Last-Minute Tax Deduction has launched!

Parents or legal guardians can go to and submit a photo of their newest “last-minute” tax deduction. One lucky baby, born between Dec. 1-31, 2008, will win a United States savings bond worth $5,000 (up to $10,000 upon maturity). In addition to the possible tax credits and deductions a new child may bring, who would have thought a December baby could be worth so much?

Meet Last Year’s Winner: Last year, Baby Owen won the honor of being voted America’s Cutest Last-Minute Tax Deduction. To see an update on Owen, check out the TurboTax video.

If your little tax-deduction does not qualify for the contest here are a few tips that will help you during tax season:

  • Any new baby in 2008 could deliver a $1,000 child tax credit. This is a gift that keeps on giving until they turn 17.
  • Be sure to file a new W-4 form with your employer to claim an additional withholding "allowance which may help boost your take-home pay.
  • There's also a tax credit, worth as much $11,650 in 2008, to help offset the cost of adopting a child.

Tis' the Season and I have a giveaway!

I have 3 cute onesies to giveaway. If you or someone you know has a baby the can fit size 6 months all you have to do is leave a comment.

If you want additional entries subscribe to my feed, post my button on your sidebar or tweet this giveaway. This contest is open until December 11th at 6:00pm. It is open to U.S. addresses only. Good Luck!
