Here at TurboTax, we’re taking a simpler approach to celebrating both the Olympics and tax season – Twitterlympics. Taxes and the Olympics? There’s a tie-in? Yes. There is no reason we at TurboTax shouldn’t stir up a little healthy competition of our own to bestow upon the best competitors wonderful rewards (this time, free tax software instead of Gold medals).

Between the Alpine skiing and curling competitions, we’ll be celebrating the Olympics tax season-style – with small competitions of our own on Twitter each day next week.

Follow us @TurboTax to join in on the games beginning Monday, Feb. 15 – let the games begin!
