Deal Details

Last Edited by bluesloth January 6, 2014 at 04:51 AM
With all the recent threads on buying TurboTax Deluxe, I came across an email with an old URL from past years for free TurboTax Deluxe and it still seems to work!

http://turbotax.intuit.com/affiliate/06tycmep

<Edited out irrelevant information on Online Filing>

I thought I'd pass it along in case it works for others as well.

EDIT:
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!

EDIT2:
** 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>

EDIT4:
Mod removed the link and Info I had in EDIT3. You can find the info here:

Click "FREE efile included" in online option; or
Click "FREE Federal efile included" in download option.

------------------------------------------
IMO Here are the best things to do:

Now:
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.

Try it for Free/Pay when you file: Price increase expected on 03/22/14 unless you've received a valid special discount offer--in which case comparison is based on your specified discount, which may expire before 03/22/14 (see your discount offer details for more info). Actual prices for our online products are determined at the time of print or efile and are subject to change without notice.

Hmmm. Hard to know how this will end up. Since many don't have W-2's in-hand yet, it's possible they catch this and "kill" the free deal. It'll b nice if this manages to hold up over the next month or two.

I'd be a bit cautious. It says "start for free" (pay when you file*). That's what your post says too ("Prices are determined at the time of print or efile and are subject to change without notice."). The title seems a bit misleading.

So this is pretty much repost of that State Farm thread.

Yea. Sorry - I didn't realize it. All I had was the URL on from a previous year and it didn't specify State Farm. On the plus side, I just purchased the downloadable version ofTurbotax Premiere for $30 from the URL (click on downloadable products). I think that is pretty slick considering it's $59 elsewhere.

Fed & State were both free filing from TurboTax online for me last year. There are quite a few options for free filing,
depending on your income and other thresholds. Be sure to check this site when it opens for the tax season later this month:

You'll need Schedule D. In the past, it was included in Deluxe version but things have changed recently.
