Ask not what you can do for your country. Ask what your country can do for you.
That’s right. April 15 is the deadline to file your taxes. And once you’ve paid Uncle Sam his fair share, it’s time to treat yourself. Two South Florida properties can help you celebrate the end of tax season without blowing your entire refund check. Both are based on a two nights’ minimum stay.
OPTION 1: Sagamore, the Art Hotel: At this Miami Beach hotel, “IRS” stands for Internal Rejuvenation Services. And that’s just what you’ll get when you take advantage of the “Taxes Are a Beach” package. The offer starts at $320 per night -- that’s a 20 percent savings -- and includes the following:
Tax-free accommodations in a suite
A $25 “stimulus” credit to use on hotel amenities or even to lower your room rate a bit more.
Daily breakfast buffet for two.
Daily beach chairs for two.
This offer is good through April 30, 3013. To book, go to SagamoreHotel.com or call 877-242-6673.
OPTION 2: Hawks Cay Resort: At this Florida Keys resort, saving money gives you more time to daydream. Maybe you’ll try kitboarding, lounge in the lagoon or opt for a stress-melting massage. Whatever you decide, you’ll be saving money when you opt for the Tax Relief promotion. The package starts at $288.71 per night and includes:
Two complimentary welcome cocktails.
Book by April 30 and stay before May 30, 2013. For reservations, click here and use the promo code TAX.
