You work hard all year long, but with every pay stub, Uncle Sam slides in to grab his share without lifting a finger.


Paying taxes is never fun, but for those of you who overpay, once a year you get a chunk sent back to you.


When your tax refund finally arrives, what will you do with it? This year, make the E-Z decision and give yourself a memorable Las Vegas getaway that would make even Uncle Sam a little jealous.


Just like taxes, when it comes to planning a Vegas adventure, it often pays to itemize. Make the most of your refund check and create the experience that best fits to your form.


Some legendary Las Vegas nightlife is a waiting just for you. Dance the night away at Tao Nightclub at The Venetian. Tao features three full-service bars; two main rooms playing hip hop, EDM and top 40; private skyboxes; and a 40-foot outside terrace overlooking the Strip. 

Married filing jointly: There’s no shortage of ways to celebrate together in Vegas. Start with a couples spa treatment at Oleksandra at Treasure Island, with two therapists in the luxurious spa suite. Share your choice of massage with your favorite person. 


Married filing separately: How about a guys’ weekend trip? Get behind the wheel of some of the world’s most exotic cars and go a few laps at SpeedVegas. Afterward, fuel up at Beerhaus at The Park, a fresh take on the classic beer hall.

Married filing separately: Ladies, there’s plenty for the perfect girls’ getaway, too. Take care of every hair need with blowouts at Drybar Las Vegas at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and its extensive menu of options including The Straight Up, The Manhattan, The Cosmo, The Mai Tai, The Cosmo-Tai, Southern Comfort, Dirty Martini, The Uptini, Old Fashioned, Shirley Temple, or a style from the braid bar. Then, you’re ready for a night out with the crazy antics and uninhibited fun of Absinthe at Caesars Palace.  

You’re probably leaving your little tax benefits, er, sorry, … children at home, so celebrate a little independence from the dependents with a true Vegas night out: Dinner at Hugo’s Cellar at Four Queens in the heart of downtown Las Vegas, where every woman is greeted with a rose before dinner. Afterward, head to The Mirage and be amazed by the fusion of dance, music and visuals at Beatles Love by Cirque du Soleil. 


Newly married? Congrats! Nothing beats a romantic trip to Las Vegas, highlighted by a gondola ride at The Venetian.

Bought a house? There’s no place like home. But there’s also no place like a fancy Las Vegas hotel suite. Splurge on a luxurious room at the Golden Nugget’s Spa Tower, or a Gold Tower suite with a pool view.


Addition to the family? You definitely deserve some much needed R&R, so hit The Spa at The LINQ Hotel + Experience. Take advantage of a full-service facility offering facials, body treatments, massages, a modern salon. and a 2,000-square-foot fitness center.

Ready for retirement? You’ve worked a lifetime for this. Enjoy the peace and tranquility, along with a relaxing round of championship golf, at TPC Summerlin.


Starting a new job? You’ll need to look sharp, so shop at Stitched in The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, one of the top men’s boutiques in the U.S.

Student? You can continue your education by visiting Las Vegas’ historic past at the Mob Museum and the Neon Museum in downtown Las Vegas.


It’s your refund. You worked hard for it, so make the most of it. This year, treat yourself to the Las Vegas getaway you deserve.
