Although not all Americans enjoy preparing for tax season, there is one big perk to look forward to: your tax refund! According to the IRS, last tax season about 75% of taxpayers received a direct deposit tax refund over $3,000, and what better way to celebrate your tax refund than by booking a fun trip with your extra cash?
If that sounds enticing, then you’re in luck. This year, South African Tourism, in partnership with top US travel trade partners, unveiled six new exciting packages priced between $1,700-$3,200 to match the average refund, giving US taxpayers the opportunity to visit South Africa!
