<Edited out irrelevant information on Online Filing>
I thought I'd pass it along in case it works for others as well.
This appears to be a repost of the State Farm Deal - but with a twist - you don't have to log into your State Farm Account (or have one) to take advantage of the deal.
You can buy the downloadable versions of TurboTax as follows:
TurboTax Deluxe - $20
TurboTax Premiere - $30
TurboTax Home and Business - $40
TurboTax Business - $50
Just click on the link then click on the 'See Products' link under the Downloadable software section of the website.
** Some people are having problems using link above ** possibly try cutting and pasting link instead of clicking on it. Or use Chrome with 'Incognito' I'm on a mac and it just worked for me. See thread for other ideas if these don't work. Good Luck!
** Get CD Versions of the TurboTax Flavors for $3.95 more in shipping **
1. Cut and Paste the URL into a Chrome Incognito Window.
2. Scroll down and click on the 'Get Started' Button towards the bottom of the screen.
3. Click 'View CD/Download Products' towards the bottom right hand corner of the screen.
4. Scroll Down and click the 'Buy Now' button for the flavor of TurboTax that you want.
5. Click the 'I'd like to order a CD' link on the in-window pop-up that comes up.
6. Check out.
(works as far as step 5 for me, but since I already bought, I'm not going further)
EDIT3: <Removed by Mod>
Mod removed the link and Info I had in EDIT3. You can find the info here:
Or quoted in some of the messages in this thread.
**** Copy/Paste will work with Firefox (probably with other browsers too) ... instead of clicking the OP's link ******

IMO Here are the best things to do:
1. Go to
Use Chrome in Incognito
2. Download the Deluxe Desktop version for free.
3. Start the Premier Online version for free now.
- Import your last year's .tax2012 file, or fill in the Personal Info section
- Click through the State Taxes section (no real data needed). This step will create a new order "Premier State efiling" for $0.
Refer to the "lock in" part for details.
4. For fun only, not necessary now:
Play with the Online export feature. You can export a .tax2013 file and import that to your Desktop Deluxe.
When it's time to file tax in March:
1. In the Premier online version, you can do the stock/rental home stuffs (with the extra 'Premier Guidance')
2. e-file federal and state with Premier if they are still free at that time.
When done, export the .tax2013 and keep it safe.
3. The Desktop Deluxe has two purposes:
No 1, it is the backup if Intuit cancels the Premier membership for any reason.
In that case, just use the Desktop Deluxe to file tax.
No 2, you will need it to read the .tax2013 file for future reference.
"lock in" the free premier online version:
Fill in your personal info including your SS#, then start your state return, it will imports info from fed return. Then go to "print center", print out both your fed and state return. It will say the fee is Zero.
Just to make sure. Go to "Tool", click on "my fees", it will show you the fee you paid for the fed and state, Zero.
Note: I was able to get 3 states for free with the premier version. I think you could get up to 5, but not sure.
