As a single working Mom, I don't have the time or finances to pay someone to do it for me. So, I thought I'd share my find with you.
For years, I've used FreeTaxUSA. To file your Federal taxes, it's **FREE.** To file your State taxes, it will cost you about $13 (before the code FREETAXUSA10, which will get you an 10% discount on that price).
Here's the kicker. I just found FreeTaxUSA on ebates! ...and the best part? It's a BIG rebate -- 25%!
So if you're going to use this free tax software, make sure you go through ebates first to get an additional 25% back!
Remember, all those cash back rewards add up fast! Enjoy!
Celebrate springtime surrounded by meadows of tulips and
daffodils at Atlanta Blooms, the Atlanta Botanical Garden’s fifth annual
bulb festival from March through April.
Watch while the landscape
changes almost daily as more than 300,000 bulbs spring to life, including
more than 51,000 new ones planted last fall.
“Springtime is always beautiful
in Atlanta, and this is our gift to the city – the opportunity to relish
the season by immersing yourself in all this color and fragrance,” said
Garden President & CEO Mary Pat Matheson.
Among the 41,500 tulips, look for
sweeping beds of The Cure (hot pink), La Courtine (yellow with a red
flame), and Teletubby (orange). Bulbs that were trials last year and made
the cut this year include Gander’s Rhapsody (pink and white), National Velvet (red),
and Jap Groot (yellow and cream). This year, the Garden also is
experimenting with Mango Charm (peach), Rhapsody of Smile (reddish-orange),
and Sherbet (hot pink and white). Container gardens will spill with
Wilbrink’s Star (red and yellow), Honeymoon (white), and Orange Princess
As part of the Daffodil Project –
a worldwide effort memorializing children killed in the Holocaust – nearly
1,000 new Narcissus have been added to the Garden. In addition, about
8,000 new perennial bulbs now call the Garden home, including
Alliums, Galanthus, Leucojum and Anemones. All of these new additions
join hundreds of thousands of existing daffodils, species tulips, crocuses
“Planning for our tulip displays
begins one year out while the current year’s blooms are in full swing,”
said Amanda Campbell Bennett, manager of display gardens. “Our
overall color schemes for each planting bed rotate annually, so no two
years are alike!”
Peak bloom periods are dependent
upon winter weather conditions, so she advised visitors check the Garden’s
web site in early spring for updates.
