$22 Premier download, Summary Prices, 1/7/2018, + MD State iFile
As Of 1/7/2019:

 CostcoAmazonSamsTarget*
Deluxe $303029.86 40
Deluxe w/State eFile404039.86 40
Premier w/ State eFile555554.86 75
* Target might also have $5 gift card available (last week?) plus member benefits.

DOWNLOADING:
Amazon download Deluxe or Deluxe w/ State is +$10
Amazon download Premier is +$15
However, from what others have confirmed, if you buy disc, just contact Intuit and you can download a copy for free.

Speaking of downloads, LINK [bigtaxdeal.com][bigtaxdeal.com] (linked off Target's site) had digital download of Premier with State eFile for $22.
I just bought this through PayPal and it's installing from a zipped file right now. It opened fine and is now updating.
CAREFUL! Other scam alerts on this in this thread about this "bigtaxdeal"!

Maryland State Income Tax is just copied off Federal Taxes. TurboTax without State eFile will still compute your MD forms.
MD has an online "iFILE" Site [marylandtaxes.gov] [marylandtaxes.gov] to eFile personal taxes.
So, in MD, there is really no need for TurboTax State eFile. vomit
You just have to copy from the State Forms computed by TurboTax to the MD iFile SITE.
Other States might have similar programs, check your local listings. Smilie










On +state versions only, Both Federal & State tax return will be calculated/generated but only Federal e-file is included in this price. State efile fees are extra unless you are in a free state efile state like NY.

Includes 5 free federal e-files
State e-file sold separately (i.e. you have to pay to e-file State return)


Careful on what version you buy! Turbotax does some shady marketing making it appear you need a higher and more expensive version. Users and purchasers are fooled by it and reapeat the bad advice. Deluxe will do the vast majority of taxpayer's returns even quite complicated ones.

The marketing they do with this is really kind of ugly and almost to the point of fraud. The marketing is slick enough that they have their customer base repeating the misinformation. It is an added bonus that just brings them more revenue and leaves the consumer/taxpayer with less.


If the version you need has the forms it handles it. They try to up-sell more expensive versions and all you get is additional guidance or walk through that is often not needed. If you have your numbers and the form is handled in the version, it will do it. Schedule E and Schedule C are handled by Deluxe.

Here all all the forms supported by Deluxe. It's quite an extensive list and only those with very complicated returns would need more.You can see that Schedule E and schedule C are on there.

We do need to maintain competency with Amazon and buy from any store other than Amazon if price matches!
Otherwise Amazon becomes monopoly killing others and rising it's prices!!

For those who don't want the disc, just buy it and contact Turbo Tax. Tell them you need the online code b/c you don't have disc player. I did this last year, not realizing my Macbook didn't have a disc player. Very easy.

Costco online already has it on sale.



Disc is great. We split it among five households passing the disc around.

Someone please correct me, if I'm wrong here. The Deluxe version for $32 does NOT include State preparation (sold separately). The Deluxe + State version is $40. In past versions, buying the State add-on costs $20, so it seems to me that buying the Deluxe + State for less than $10 more is the better deal of the two, no?

No you're right. For some reason the deluxe+state deal wasn't coming up in my Amazon search results earlier. I just updated the OP.

The digital version of Home & Business is still $79.99. I prefer that version because I know I can always download it years later from my digital locker, no need to worry about keep the disc.

If I drove Lyft a portion of the year, I'd need to do the Home + Business + State? Feel like I always mess this up and end up having to buy extras.

Have $15 promo from chase for using rewards points so bought the Home & Business for $50 plus tax. Hate to waste the discount on tax software but it is what it is.
