Tax time is here. By now you should have received your W2 forms, 1099 interest income forms and other miscellaneous income reporting forms. Now that you've got your stack of tax information ready to go, it's time to start filing your taxes! But before you do,wait! I've got some news to share with you!
We're Giving Away 2 Free Copies Of TurboTax Deluxe Online
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.
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.
