I posted this all tax season last year, and it's still accurate:

I hate seeing people get screwed into paying loads for tax prep because companies like Intuit and and H&R block lobby to make filing taxes a pain in the ass. Most people do not have particularly complex tax needs, and 70% of people in the US qualify for free tax preparation based on income. Feel free to copy/paste this info wherever relevant.

If you make less than $66,000 in Adjusted Gross Income you qualify for free tax preparation. Below are some resources.


One of the best resources I know of is the non-profit The United Way. They offer tax preparation using H&R Block Deluxe. This allows you to file your Federal returns and up to 3 state returns for free. State filling is where you'll generally get charged a premium, and the Deluxe version they offer is a step up from H&R Block's "free" offering. Check it out here:
https://www.myfreetaxes.com

While you can produce your state return for free, you may not be able to e-file for free. If that is the case, you can certainly print and mail your return for free. Many states also offer their own free e-file solutions. Here is some info on which states offer free e-filing:

Different H&R block versions for reference: https://www.hrblock.com/tax-software/


If for some reason you'd prefer not to use the United Way/H&R Block, the IRS has a list of free tax preparation websites here:
https://www.irs.gov/filing/free-f...s-for-free


If you need more assistance the IRS makes volunteers available to assist people in doing their returns through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, and they offer assistance to older adults through the Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) program. Find a location near you here:
https://www.irs.gov/individuals/f...volunteers


Many city and county office also have free tax preparation available to citizens at libraries and government offices throughout tax season. Check your local government website.

If you are getting a refund, then your withholding is wrong. Why give the USGovt an interest-free loan?

I try to owe about $2000 above what was paid already, so I remember that taxes suck. Plus, if you aren't owed anything, someone stealing your identity for a tax refund doesn't have YOUR money. For a few years as a high earner, I tried to owe 10%.

If you need help with forced savings, setup automatic transfers to your taxable brokerage account every month for $130 ($1560/yr) or more if your budget allows.

Taxes suck. Pay your fair share, but not 1 penny more.

No-rush digital credits work on the digital download version. I had enough credits stockpiled to make it free.

How does this compare with Turbo Tax Deluxe from Costco? This seems like a great deal.

That's annoying. Pretty sure I remember Turbotax form Costco being the same deal. Can anyone confirm?

They keep lower the bonus offer. It was 10% a couple of years back, then 5%, now 4%.

I usually find that it's cheaper to buy two of these offers for a total of $45. Then you install the other version on a different computer and download the other state (e.g. New York on first PC, NJ on the other PC). Then you copy the other state to the state folder where you are doing your return. That's typically cheaper then ordering a second state during the process. Yeah, more work but it saves you about $40 i believe.
