Send in Your Pizza Hut ‘Tax Return’ for a Chance to Win Free Pizza

Pizza Hut’s Tax Day promotion is actually a kitschy pizza sweepstakes in disguise

Instead of a check in the mail, you get a gift card for Pizza Hut.

National Pizza Return Day: it’s like Tax Day, but with more food and fewer headaches and accountant fees. Pizza Hut wants to make your April 15 just a little bit better with their new free pizza promotion. All you have to do is fill out a P-2 form (get it? P-2, because pizza), and hope that you qualify for a delicious pizza return. They’ll even give you until April 18 to file. Yes, that’s three whole days past the normal tax deadline. Apparently pizza can wait a little longer, but the government cannot.

The aptly-named P-2 form has several “wink, wink, nudge, nudge” pizza references besides the typical personal information queries. Pizza Hut wants to know if you’re married, ordering together or separately, and asks you to list your dependents (one of which happens to be your 4 a.m. hangry self). Pizza Hut also wonders how many feet of pizza you ordered this year and how many pepperonis you ate.


Once you send your “tax” form in, you could be the recipient of a $50, $20 or $10 gift card to Pizza Hut. But only 62 people will get pizza returns, which, last we checked, is way less than the number of Americans who get tax returns from the government. Perhaps it’s not a win-win situation after all.
