Deductions for nonitemizers
38 in April?!?!?

Rap it up

Kenny Pickett, a Boston tax rapper (and Beantown sports fan) invokes Men in Black type auditors, the Tea Party aka America's first tax protest, and provides some tax-wise lyrics like this:

I to the R to the S to the audit
Keep your receipt to prove that you bought it

Now Kenny's not just a musical tax fan. His video, made with the help of videographer Nat Towsen, is one of 370 entered in a contest sponsored by TurboTax. More on the contest here. Warning: Vanilla Ice is the contest spokesperson. At least he doesn't rap this time!

To vote for Kenny's and Nat's tax rap, click here.

Or you can scroll down a bit and browse the other 369 entries to find one that appeals more to your tax and rap sensibilities.

But decide soon. Voting ends on Sunday, April 8. Vanilla Ice will announce the winner on April 15. Here's hoping he doesn't sing that either.

Your choice could help aspiring musicians, or accountants, win a nice chunk of change. The Grand Prize winner gets $25,000. First place is worth $5,000. Second place nets $1,000. The tax software company also plans to award "TurboTax Bling" to five Viewer's Choice picks.

All winnings are, of course, taxable.
