Continues after Advertisement

This year I’m fortunate to be partnering with TurboTax, one of the premier tax filing software available. Intuit TurboTax is allowing me to give two lucky winners a free copy of Intuit’s TurboTax Deluxe Online tax filing software. The gift card that they’ve sent me (see above) will allow the winners to receive free federal and state tax filing using the online version of TurboTax Deluxe – which is a step up from their free version.

Some of the benefits of the TurboTax software we’ll be giving away:

  • Guiding taxpayers step-by-step: Built in guidance for more than 350 possible deductions and credits, including the 2009 economic stimulus.  Helps taxpayers get the biggest refund possible.
  • Real time error checking: flags errors and missed information as you go.  Fix mistakes right then, or later on.
  • Double Checking for commonly overlooked deductions and credits: You won’t miss important credits that many people fail to claim every year.
  • Audit support with every return: The TurboTax Audit Risk Meter helps customers avoid common errors and reduce their risk of an audit before they file.  A downloadable Audit Support Center assists customers in the unlikely event they are audited.
  • Instantly transferring investment and wage information: TurboTax customers can easily, accurately and securely import 1099 investment and W-2 wage information from more than 140 financial institutions and payroll providers directly into their tax return.

TurboTax - Do your taxes for Free - It's Easy

Try TurboTax Out For Free

This year since I’ll be getting my own free copy of TurboTax Premier so I’m going to give it a try.  I’ve used other tax software in the past, Tax Cut, TaxSlayer and others –  but I’m ready to give TurboTax a try.

From talking with others, most  of them seem to really like TurboTax – so I’m looking forward to taking it around the block for a test drive.  We’ll see how it stacks up to the rest.

You too can give TurboTax a try for free to see how it works for you.    That’s one of the cool features of the software is that you can basically do your entire return, and find out what your results are. You don’t even have to pay until you get to the point of actually filing and sending in your return.  If you’re not happy with it, don’t go through with filing – it won’t cost you a thing.

    I have used TurboTax before and it is the best tax software program.

    I do not expect a refund this year but I’m sure if I win TurboTax Deluxe Online it will help dwindle down what I owe!

  2. Lesa Steele says

    Greetings Peter–My DH was out of work for 13 months. PTL we have been blessed with employment now for about 6 months. We always hire somebody because our tax situation is usually complicated (income bracket, stock portfolio, bonuses, etc). Don’t have that problem this year though LOL. We will be rec’g a return which will go toward our sons college eduction (med school–Rutgers). Have used TurboTax *many* yrs in the past when they started out and we were not quite grounded. Enjoy reading your blogs. Have retweeted several. > Blessings <

    I had a conversation with a friend this weekend and he said the he always uses turbo tax to do his taxes. I have always used a tax accountant to do my tax although he uses turbo tax application, just always felt Ok that way. Might try doing it on my own next year.

    We have used Turbo Tax for many years and love it. I used TaxCut two years ago because it was MUCH cheaper and did not enjoy the experience nearly as much. This year I am looking at the prices for Turbo Tax and still don’t want to pay more that the competitors product, but it’s definitely better! We will get a refund again this year – I know it is not the best decision, but it has worked well for our family so we are holding off on tweaking our withholding still. Thanks for offering such a great opportunity to your readers, and keep up the great posts!

    I have used Turbo Tax before & love it. I am excited to get a refund this year since I have started my own home based business last year. Thanks for doing this I have a found a ton a great information that has helped me to get my own finances in order. Have a great day!

  6. Donna Greer says

    I have been using Turbo Tax for the last eight years, I have reccommended this program not difficult to use. Unfortunately, I expect a return this year (plan on putting it to good use).

  7. Patrick Kansa says

    Yup, I’ve used TurboTax in the past – both the software, as well as the web-based implementation (used that the past two years). And yes, we are expecting a refund this year due to a variety of things that came up in the year we normally don’t have happen.

  8. Chatak says

    I have used Turbotax and Taxcut,.I prefer Turbox because of the simplicity of questions. Hopefully, I will get returns this year consider we had baby and I didnt adjust the W4.

  9. Peter says

    I’ve used TurboTax in the past. I may try the web version this year to see how it compares to the desktop version. As long as I can get a PDF at the end (and/or the associated .tax data file), I may just do that. Cost would likely be cheaper than buying the software. I do expect a refund, but not sure how much at this point.

  10. Kim says

    I’ve never used TurboTax but I used TaxCut from H&R Block last year. It saved me a lot of money over going into the store and I could do it at my leisure. I would love to win a copy. I expect that we’ll be paying some Federal Tax this year since my husband is collecting unemployment. 2009 was a tough year.

  11. Jimmy says

    i have been using turbotax for the past three years and i expect to get a refund this year with a mortgage and tuition deductions!

  12. says

    I used Turbotax for the first time last year. I thought it was pretty easy switching over from an accountant to software.

    As for my taxes, this is the first year I get to file MFJ. Unfortunately, getting married isn’t the best tax move. I did a few calculations so we wouldn’t get hit too hard, but I’m still excited to get final numbers soon. Hopefully, I can expect a refund.

    I have used TurboTax before and it’s great.

    I don’t expect a return this year, but it sure would be nice to be have one!

  14. Tracy P says

    I have used Turbo Tax many times before–but it seems pricier than ever this year. I hope to get a small refund (I dislike over paying and giving the government an interest free loan). Thanks for your offer.

  15. Adam says

    I have used turbo tax before and overall have had good experiences! Probably going to get a small refund this year.

  16. Clark W says

    I have used TurboTax for the past several years (shortly after I was old enough to begin filing annual tax returns). It’s a tough call — I think I’m pretty close to break-even with taxes this year.

  17. mia'splayground says

    I have always used TurboTax to file my taxes, since I have filed, and I don’t expect a refund this year…which would be perfect! Trying not to owe or be owed.

  18. Joyce says

    Never used TurboTax before, although I have heard good things about it. Unfortunately, no refund is expected this year. Thanks for offering this giveaway! jgs0925 at gmail dot com

  19. Travis Irons says

    I have been using Turbo Tax Online for more than six years now. I can’t say enough good things about it. Shortly after buying my house I used one of the “professional” tax services, they did a good job, but I double check the return with turbo tax, same forms, same results, $250 less. TT also remembers my info year to year and compares my return to others which is cool.
    I am hoping to break even this year but I might be a little under.

  20. Heidi says

    TurboTax Online has been my best friend at tax time for the past 6 years. I have just about finished with this year’s return and it looks like we will get a healthy chunk of change back. We will be able to pay off one of our credit cards!

  21. Shawn G says

    I have not used TurboTax before, but would be interested to try this year. I’m going to owe money to the government, I’m just not sure how much yet.

  22. Cameron says

    I have filed online before but I’ve never used Turbo Tax. I’m very much interested in trying it out though and maybe even helping my friends out with their taxes. Most of us are grad students so I think its safe to expect a return this year.

  23. Marie says

    I guestimated my witholdings last year so that the fed refund would cover the state deficit. Our state forms don’t allow us to withhold more than 40% of fed or add an X amount to add to the witholding. And as my fed is 1/2 my state liability this doesn’t work.

    Bring on the free turbotax

  24. says

    I have used Turbo Tax before and found it extremely easy to use, even with my wife and I filing as independent contractors for side work.

    We are hoping for a return this year…it would help a great deal!

    On an extra note, thank you for such a great blog that incorporates Biblical and financial wisdom…too often do we separate the two.

  25. Oregonsun says

    I have never used Turbo Tax and would really like a chance to give it a try. Thanks for the chance!

  26. says

    We’ve used TurboTax the past 3-4 years and love it, but can’t afford it this year.

    I’m expecting a refund, but so many things have changed about our situation this year, I have no idea what it will look like!

    I’d LOVE to win! Thanks for hosting an awesome giveaway!

  27. William Upton says

    I have used TAX CUT in the past because it was less expensive and had free software that came along with it, but this year I am trying Turbo Tax Deluxe. I am also getting Quicken, which will be free after the associated rebate. I am excited and interested in how it will improve my tax filing experience! I am glad to hear that it has some biblical wisdom as a bonus!

    I am expecting a decent refund this year and am glad that I can E-file for myself and my family members so we can get our refund quickly!

    I’d love to win and would probably donate it someone in my Church that needs it.

  28. Marjorie Whitney says

    I have used Turbo-Tax before, and usually end up paying the feds what I get back from the state.

  29. anita says

    still waiting for it to go on sale this is the 2nd week I’ve been stalking turbotax for sale prices

  30. anita says

    I”ve been a loyal turbotax user for 5 years. my dad brainwashed me into thinking accountants know what they’re doing. I think I might get a refund this year since I paid for graduate school. Or I hope so.

  31. Jen B says

    I have used Turbo Tax for the last couple of years and have been pleased. Not sure about the refund yet! :-)

    Thanks for your blog ~ I’ve enjoyed reading it.

  32. A. Moore says

    I’ve used TurboTax for years, and love it. They’ve done a nice job putting together a program that makes sense – I’ve never had any trouble. :)

    I’m hoping to get back some money, although I don’t think it will be terribly much. If it’s anything like last year, it will be around $250.

  33. Jason says

    I’ve used TurboTax last year for the first time and I love it. Thanks for entering me in the giveaway!

  34. Henria Oropeza says

    I’ve used TurboTax for about 5 years and unfortunately, I am not expecting a refund this year. It happens…

  35. Daniel Roch says

    I have NOT used TurboTax last year but would love to this year. It is expensive to get taxes done by a pro and my family is on a tight budget this year. I hope to get a refund and I hope TurboTax will help us with it.

  36. Michael Villano says

    I have used Turbotax before. I am recently separated and adjusting to living on a single income. I am expecting a tax return this year and it will be used to pay down a home equity loan I have.

    I have not used TurboTax before, I’ve been using H&R Block TaxCut for the last five years…but like Clever Dude was never sure if I was answering the questions correctly. I would love to try a new system!!

    I use Turbo Tax and love it’s ease of use. I’ve tried other tax software but I really like Turbo Tax. I’ll be using my refund on my new business and CPA exam study fees.

  39. Elizabeth says

    I’ve used TurboTax the last few years and like it a lot. I don’t use their state file, though, as my state does it free.

    We’re getting a few hundred dollars back and will probably splurge on a couple small things, after a frugal and well-planned year.

  40. Meghan says

    I have used TurboTax every year since I started filing my own taxes. It makes it so easy.

    This year I do expect to get a return, I’ll be using it to pay for part of my honeymoon in Paris.
