Free TurboTax Business software download

Update 02/09: Go here for a roundup of TurboTax deals for 2008 tax year

Small business owners rejoice! You worked hard through the year so get rewarded for your hard work! ;-)

Diligent bargain hunters at SlickDeals forums have spotted Intuit targeting free TurboTax Business Software download to select visitors of the tax software home page and posted a a direct link (no longer working) to the offer.

People report seeing the free download offer intermittently. When not offered, the ongoing sale price for Business version of the TurboTax software is shown as $74.95 (includes Federal taxes for Corporations, Partnerships, & LLCs).

I have gone through the complete checkout procedure using the direct link above (and my existing TurboTax login id) and got this message at the end:

Thank you for requesting your FREE TurboTax Business Software for Tax Year 2007.

Here is your link to access the download

As a reminder, TurboTax Business is absolutely free ($99.95 value). It is the same complete edition that’s sold in stores or direct from Intuit. We’re giving you the option to try it for free for one simple reason: we think that once you’ve tried TurboTax Business, you’ll become a TurboTax customer for life.

Do your taxes at your own pace. TurboTax saves your information, so you can come back to work on your return whenever you want. Your free TurboTax Business software is not limited in any way. Use it to prepare and file your federal tax return — there’s no cost or obligation.

So go ahead — prepare and file your federal business taxes FREE with TurboTax Business.

    Thank you soooooo much!!!!!
    You’re awesome!
    This is my first 1120S return and I was dreading it,
    but I started last night and it doesn’t seem to be a big deal, especially with QB import feature.
    This is great!

    Wow, I can’t believe this was for real! I just downloaded it. I still can’t believe I got this for free. What’s the catch? I suppose they still charge for e-file, but hey if that is the case its still an awesome deal.

  7. 7 Mary Apr 15th, 2008 at 4:51 pm

    Totally Awesome!!! I had my 07 returns done by an accountant and wanted to compare it with TurboTax. If it works out well I’ll use TurboTax and do it myself.

  32. 32 Charlotte Feb 2nd, 2009 at 9:50 am

    Still works on Feb 2, 2009. Just got my download and save a hundred bucks and a trip to Staples. Thanks a bunch!

  33. 33 janet Feb 2nd, 2009 at 2:14 pm

    This worked for me today

  34. 34 DC Feb 3rd, 2009 at 1:13 pm

    Got it! Which is really awesome.
    Thank you to those who dug this out. By now you probably saved thousands to people.
    FYI thou, it took me a while to figure this out; every time I tried the link it would display the page with “free download” button” and clicking that would take me to “account sign in” page, but when I’d try to sign in it would display “this page has expired due to inactivity”. What I didn’t know is “item” would still be placed in my cart so if you see this page just go to your cart (you may have to sign out and sign in again) and from there you should be able so start a download.
    I don’t know if most everybody else knows about this but I didn’t so it wouldn’t hurt to share.

    In case you are getting ‘Session Expired’ page upon registering, follow the instructions below:

    1) After you register and get the “session timed out error”

    2) Click on the “Cart” icon in the top bar. It will take you to a screen that says: Review Your Order

    3) The software should show up as 0.00 in your cart.

    4) Your software is ready to checkout

    PS: You can re-download the files again for at least 3 years free of charge.
    Just click My Account to Sign On

  36. 36 Many Thanks Feb 7th, 2009 at 4:20 pm

    Worked as of 2/7! Awesome! Thanks!

  37. 37 Cale Feb 7th, 2009 at 9:17 pm

    link worked, but once I checkout it says Internal Server Error. Anybody figured out how to get by this?

  38. 38 av Feb 8th, 2009 at 3:24 am


    Thank you!!! I though that the offer had expired until I read your comment.

    It worked like a charm!

    It’s unfathomable that Intuite charges obscenely for this product which is nothing more than a minor extension of TT Home and Business.

  39. 39 Paul Mar 16th, 2009 at 11:06 am

    Worked for me today. Filing late, but late is still better than never!

  40. 40 Angela Mar 28th, 2009 at 9:24 am

  41. 41 Vern Apr 12th, 2009 at 7:04 pm
