Actually, I have 2 copies of TurboTax Deluxe Online to give away! You even get a free State eFile. That’s almost a $90 value!
I previously used H&R Block TaxCut Online for about 4-5 years until I got fed up with their system; I never quite knew if I was answering the question correctly. So I tested out TaxCut, TaxAct and TurboTax at the same time two years ago, and found that I liked TurboTax the best, by far. That year I used the desktop version, but the last 2 years I used the online version…and it’s just as good as the desktop version (without all the worry of saving the files locally and losing them).
First, do you need TurboTax Premier
Even with my side income from my blog, Deluxe is good enough for me. However, check whether you can file for free through the IRS to save yourself the hassle of all the questionnaires in the higher editions. Just be sure to check out the income restrictions for that program.
Next, if you can’t file for free through the feds, but you only need to file a form 1040EZ, then you can use the TurboTax Online Free Edition. State filing is still extra, but I have my own ways around that, at least from experience in MD and VA, but your state may differ. I like let the tax software complete my state taxes, but then I go to the state website and plug in my numbers and file for free! Yes, I even told the TurboTax VP this secret, and they’re fine with it, but we both agreed most people won’t go the extra step when they can just file from within the software.
Alright, can’t file for free through the IRS or TurboTax? Then I guess you can enter below
