That sucks, it will cost almost twice as much as the initial software to add the second state.
Does the $25.99 include e-filing of the federal and first state as well or is that an additional charge too? Seems like I used a similar software package and that included the prep for fed and one state return. It also included the fed e-file but I had to pay around $20 to e-file the state (ended up just printing and returning it) .
I don't remember for sure but I don't think free state e-file was included. I'm pretty sure I mailed both state returns.
Does this include free federal or state efile?
This includes 5 free federal e-files according to the picture on the product page.
Well, that's just it, my post included the majority of the details disclosed...that is the gist of the information provided on the outside of the CD-Rom case.

I suppose I'm going to just have to put in the CD and go for it. The only reason I'm somewhat hesitant is that one of the first times I used a "free" version of H&R block, when came time to file my taxes, there was a fee for some type of option I had used that "wasn't included in the free version I was using". This wasn't clearly disclosed to me until after I'd done the entire program, entered all of my tax information, etc...so at the time I was left with the decision of starting over from scratch or just paying the fee in order to e-file.
I'm just hopeful that if there's some sort of catch it will be apparent before I go through the entire process, and not after I'm ready to e-file but unable to do so unless I pay some crazy fee...
I received the same CD as well but it has a green label on the front indicating "Starting at $24.95" - Good thru 02/11/13 . You might want to double check again
I usually buy it from Office Depot (right now $44.95 for Deluxe, with a $10 rebate). Then I load up on the FAR software that I will use, and cash in all of the "free" rewards I got in the fall. Not the best price, but this way I get to cash out all of the rewards.
Price has jumped to $31.85. I'm glad I jumped on this deal. I'm sure there's a chance it will go cheaper than $26, but I need to do my taxes ASAP so it was worth it. This was without having to deal with rebates, too.
