Did you know you can file your 1040EZ and other simple returns such as a 1040A or 1040 for FREE at TurboTax.com? You can even Efile for FREE with direct deposit. With Efile, you can get your refund in your bank account in as little as 8 days. (IRS states 8-15 days is the typical turn around time.)
I’ve been a user of TurboTax CD Edition for many years now. I’ve found it provides very easy, step by step instructions which help maximize your deductions. Turbo Tax translates complex IRS language into language that we all can understand. You can rest assured you will get the maximum refund (or pay the least amount tax due) with the TurboTax Guarantee. If you get a larger refund or smaller tax due from another tax preparation method, you will be refunded the applicable TurboTax federal and/or state purchase price paid.
During the interview process, based on your interview questions, Turbo Tax will determine which Online Software will meet your needs. (You can see a complete comparision at TurboTax.com.) No matter how simple or how complex your return is, you will find Turbo Tax user friendly. Note: If you do not qualify for the FREE version, you do not have to pay until you file. So you can try this product out for Free. If you don’t feel it meets your needs, simply do not file and you will owe nothing! From my experience, you will find this to be very thorough and easy to use.
One of my favorite things is the constant updating of your Refund/Tax Owed. See below for an example. Nice to see that change when you input new or additional information.
The only negative thing I can think of TurboTax Online Software is it may run slow for the people who have dial up access. However, it does save and update your file when you create an account for every change you make. This gives you peace of mind that the work you’ve completed won’t be completely lost if you lose your connection.
You might also want to check out the other user friendly products in the Intuit family. I’ve been a user of Intuit products such as Quicken & Quickbook Pro for over 13 years and have been very satisfied with their products.
Intuit has offered me (3) Turbo Tax Deluxe Edition Codes. Three lucky readers will be able to reddem these codes for (1) Free Federal Preparation & (1) Free State Preparation and Efile with Turbo Tax Deluxe Online 2008.
