BOSTON, Mass., April 8, 2013 /3BL Media/ – Nine entrants in the first-ever SaveYourRefund tax time savings promotion that started Feb. 1, came out way ahead after saving part of their federal tax refund. After random drawings, each of the winners received a prize of $250 for splitting his or her refund using IRS Form 8888.

The Boston-based nonprofit Doorways to Dreams Fund (D2D) created SaveYourRefund as part of its mission to strengthen consumer financial security. Tax filers over age 18 who save at least $50 from their federal tax refund, by splitting their refund using the IRS’s Form 8888, can enter online at  or via SMS text messaging until April 15. Late filers can still enter if they use Form 8888 to file their taxes.

Nine SaveYourRefund winners that have shared their stories are Michael Perry of Glen Allen, Va; “J.B.” of Cambridge, Mass.; John Rawlins of Tucson, Az.; James McAnulty of Belleville, Ill.; Sofya Leonova of Washington, D.C.; Amanda Coffing of Romney, Ind.; Rebecca Boyle of York Harbor, Maine; Annette McCollin of Cambridge, Mass., and; Tezurra Gooding of Morrisville, N.C.

So far, sweepstakes entrants have reported saving about $632,233.00, including $67,000 in U.S. Savings Bonds, said Timothy Flacke, executive director of D2D.
