Let’s be honest: Doing your taxes is super annoying, especially when you find out that you actually owe money this year.

JetBlue is trying to ease your pain by giving away 1,000 free one-way flights as part of its Tax Return Return Flight giveaway. That’s right—if you owe taxes, you could get a free flight (vacation anyone?)

You can enter the giveaway once a day until April 25.

Jetblue says it will do random drawings to select the winners. If you win a free flight, you’ll get an emailed travel certificate that you must use between May 1 and June 15 this year.

All you have to do to enter is fill out JetBlue’s form and let them know that you owe money on your 2016 federal income tax return. You must be 18 years or older and a legal resident of one of the 48 contiguous states, Washington, D.C., or Alaska.

Also, JetBlue says in the rules of the contest that it’s under “no obligation” to determine if you’re actually telling the truth or not about whether you owe taxes this year.
