Use your Tax Refund in a Relaxing Way
This year, there is still time to file your federal taxes. The US Treasury and IRS have extended the Tax Day deadline to May 17, helping taxpayers navigate the unusual circumstances related to the COVID19 pandemic. Still, organizing the required paperwork, meeting with your tax consultant, finding missed write-off opportunities can leave you feeling overwhelmed. With the extra stimulus tax break offered this year, some of you will receive a refund check in the mail. And some of those who receive a refund will want to use it on a destination fishing trip. Let’s face it, 2020 was a long year.
Check out these amazing fishing destinations worth every penny of your refund, that also support Casting for Recovery.
