TurboTax 2008 online deals

Update 02/10: Go here for a version of this roundup updated for 2009 tax year

This is a roundup of the current promotions on the online version of TurboTax tax preparation software, the kind of software I have used for several years and will use this time as well.

Pick the type that fits your needs (Basic, Deluxe, Premier, or Home & Business), compare the prices below, and use the link to go to the promotion page. Bookmark it and make sure to use the same link every time you go back to continue your taxes.

It looks like I will go with Fidelity or USAA this year. I need Home and Business (both federal and state) and these companies offer the best discount. Please tell me which software you use. Also comment if you know any other on-going TurboTax promotion and I will update this blog post.

    Excellent – thanks a ton for sharing this!!!

    The “basic” on http://www.turbotax.com is not “free.” That’s the “Free Edition” federal product. It’s “free” everywhere. “Basic” is up the food chain in terms of functionality, between “Free Edition” and “Deluxe.”

    Good deals (e.g., $40 deluxe fed/state/efile) for BJ’s members shown here…
