Death and Taxes – Funeralwise.com Offers a ‘Tax Rebate’

April 6, 2010

LAS VEGAS, April 6 /PRNewswire/ — Since the only things certain in life are death and taxes, Funeralwise.com is offering to ease the burden with free funeral planning and “tax rebates” of up to $500 to individuals who register on their website.

“Death and taxes are two certainties we all wish we could avoid. People are forced to think about taxes at least once a year, but they can avoid thinking about their mortality almost indefinitely. Yet there are many good reasons why people should do pre-need funeral planning, not the least of which are saving money and reducing the stress when there’s a death in the family,” says Funeralwise.com co-founder Rick Paskin.

The Funeralwise.com “Tax Rebate” sweepstakes is available to U.S. residents, ages 35 and older. Go to http://www.funeralwise.com/tax-rebate-sweepstakes for details and to enter. No purchase is necessary, restrictions apply.

Funeralwise co-founder Larry Anspach notes, “It’s much easier to do funeral planning when death is not imminent … a compelling reason to plan ahead. Younger people may not feel compelled to pre-plan their own funeral, but they should consider the consequences if their parents do not have a funeral plan. Would they know their parents’ wishes and the information needed to file a life insurance claim? Will they have time to put together a fitting tribute? Will money be available for a proper send off?”

Funeralwise.com provides free, do-it-yourself funeral planning via its website. Thousands of people have used the Funeralwise.com online funeral planner since it launched about a year ago. Creating a funeral plan begins with a “Quick Plan” of a few key choices: preferences for burial or cremation; type of funeral or memorial service; and additional services including embalming or transportation. The Quick Plan can be completed in a few minutes and provides high and low range funeral cost estimates.

Once a user saves a Funeralwise.com Quick Plan, access is provided to a free, full-featured online funeral planner, the “Funeral Director Plan,” which enables a user to plan all aspects of a funeral, much like a funeral director would do. Both Funeralwise.com do-it-yourself planners are free of charge.

Aiming to provide “Everything You Need to Know About Funerals,” Funeralwise.com also features extensive information on funeral-related subjects, including funeral customs, funeral etiquette, and grief support. Visitors to the site can subscribe to its “Word to the Wise” series of free guides at http://www.funeralwise.com. Also, Funeralwise can be found on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/Funeralwise.
