Got free TaxCut, should I switch from TurboTax?

TaxCut by TravelocityMy procrastination with tax return paid off this year and I might have just saved myself some money. This is probably not news any longer, but in case you missed it, Travelocity is sponsoring TaxCut Premium software download and right now you can get it using this link for free bundled with DeductionPro.

Make sure to do two things when you place your order with H&R Block. 1. Use Internet Explorer . FireFox got stuck at the last step for me, and I have heard that other people had similar problems. 2. Remove Extended Download Protection from your cart. It will be their by default. If you don’t remove it, you will have to pay $3.99 for your order.

I already ordered and received my files (the download starts right after your order is complete) but didn’t install them yet. Still hesitating if I should use one of TurboTax discounts on the online version (my usual choice) or give TaxCut a try this year. has the most complete comparison of TurboTax and TaxCut I could find. I recommend reading it if you are undecided like me.

Another important thing is importing your last year tax data. From the review, TaxCut does import from TurboTax. That for sure applies if you used a desktop version of TurboTax last year, but I am not sure what happens if you used TurboTax online version. Has anyone had experience with it?

Both FatWallet and SlickDeals have ongoing discussions which will provide you more details on this offer.
