Bank account feeling a little — or a lot — lighter after paying your taxes this month?

JetBlue wants to wants to soothe your stress.

The Tax Return Return Flight contest will give away 1,000 free one-way flights to people who owed taxes this year.

And unlike some of the tax forms you may have encountered, entering this contest is so easy. We promise.

How to Enter the Tax Return Return Flight Contest

Simply submit your name, email address and birthdate at JetBluetaxreturnflight.com to enter. Confirm that you owed taxes, check the box confirming you're playing by the rules and hit submit. That's it!

Once you submit your info, you'll get a confirmation page telling you, "Tax return flight fingers crossed. If you are getting a free one-way flight, you'll find out via email only."

JetBlue won't even check that you actually owed on your tax return — because that would be creepy. You can enter once each day until 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on April 25, 2017.

JetBlue Free Flights Still Come With Rules

You must be a resident of the United States, but sorry, Hawaii — you're excluded from this contest. You must also be 18 or older to enter.

If you win, you'll get a travel certificate you can redeem for a one-way flight within the contiguous U.S. and Alaska. JetBlue notes in the rules that each certificate's value is $150, but the company will cover any one-way flight. You will still have to pay the taxes and fees on your ticket.

You'll need to use your certificate between May 1 and June 15, so start thinking about where you'll go if you win! (And then start thinking about how you'll save on your way back.)

JetBlue is pretty well known for its in-flight perks like free live TV and satellite radio, plus unlimited snacks and beverages. But flying for free would make those perks even better, don't you agree?
