While the deadline to file your taxes has just been pushed back from April to July, you still might want to file early, because Credit Karma is currently giving users a chance to win $50,000 for doing just that.

The tax software company's $50k sweepstake, which runs until March 31st, will allow you to win the grand prize for doing something you'll need to do eventually anyway: file your taxes. Did we mention it's completely free to use the service?

To be eligible for the promotion, you'll need to use Credit Karma Tax to file your 2019 federal tax return and sign the accompanying consent form.

Credit Karma’s $50,000 sweepstake is a great opportunity to win big  for doing something you already have to do: file your taxes. With Credit Karma Tax, you can file your 2019 federal tax return for free, and if you deposit at least $1 of your federal tax refund into a new account with Credit Karma Savings, you’ll be entered into a contest to win $50,000.

From there, with Credit Karma Tax at the ready, you'll need to open a Credit Karma Savings account and deposit at least $1 of your federal tax refund (if you get one) into it.

Note, residents of Florida and New York are not eligible to participate, and you'll need to keep your new Credit Karma Savings account open at least until the beginning of May, so do keep that in mind.

Why file with Credit Karma?

Credit Karma is quickly becoming a household name, as the company has been supplying free credit scores for a number of years now. 

The firm’s Credit Karma Tax service allows you to file your taxes online for free - all you have to do is sign up for a Credit Karma account. The company also has support staff available to help you with any problems you might run into while filing.
