I hope all WCM readers did fantastic tax planning throughout the year and either owe nothing or are due a small tax refund. But in case you are in the unfortunate position of owing Uncle Sam a check, this deal will help lessen the burn. Plastiq.com allows you to pay for many things with a credit card. See the WCM review of Plastiq.com here. From now until 5 pm P.T. 4/18/2016, Plastiq is allowing customers to pay their federal or state taxes for a reduced fee of 1.75% when you pay with a Mastercard. Here is how you can make money by paying your taxes using Plastiq:
- Apply for the Citi Doublecash Mastercard which gives you unlimited 2% cashback on all purchases - 1% when you buy and 1% when you pay your bill.
- Pay for your tax bill via Plastiq.com with your Citi Doublecash card before 5 pm P.T. 4/18/2016.
Say you owe the government $1,000 in taxes, you pay via Plastiq.com with your Citi Doublecash card. The total charge on your card will be $1,017.50 ($1,000 + $17.50 Plastiq fee). You will subsequently earn $20.35 cashback (2% of $1,017.50), effectively making $2.85 ($20.35 - $17.50) by paying your taxes via Plastiq.com.
