HERE’S A TIP FROM THE I-R-S. 
 
HI… I’M NINA AND I WORK FOR THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE. 

ARE YOU GETTING A REFUND CHECK THIS YEAR? 

IF SO... LET YOUR REFUND WORK FOR YOU! 

YOU CAN PURCHASE UP TO FIVE-THOUSAND DOLLARS EACH YEAR IN U-S SERIES "I" BONDS IN INCREMENTS OF 50 DOLLARS AS YOU FILE YOUR FEDERAL TAX REFUND. 

GET THEM FOR YOURSELF OR OTHERS... LIKE A CHILD OR ANYONE YOU’D LIKE AND EARN INTEREST UP TO 30 YEARS. 

WHEN YOU FILE YOUR TAX RETURN JUST USE FORM 8888 TO BUY THE BONDS.

IF YOU E-FILE... YOUR TAX SOFTWARE WILL ASK IF YOU WANT TO SPLIT YOUR REFUND… YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO BUY YOUR "I" BONDS AT THAT TIME. 

YOU CAN ALSO CHOOSE DIRECT DEPOSIT OR A PAPER CHECK IN THE MAIL FOR ANY REMAINING REFUND AMOUNT NOT USED TO PURCHASE BONDS.

MAKE SAVING EASIER WITH U.S. SAVINGS BONDS!
