TurboTax 2007 online deals

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

Here is a roundup of current promotions on the online version of TurboTax tax preparation software, the kind of software I have used to prepare my taxes for several years and will use for 2007 tax year 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.

I prefer online TurboTax version over the downloadable one (or the one on CD) for several reasons. Here they are:

  • I don’t have to mess with installing software on my PC
  • Tax preparation is a lengthy process and I don’t want to be bound to a single computer
  • It includes free e-filing

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.

TurboTax Deluxe Federal & State for $20.99

Update: the offer has expired as of January 21, 2008

TurboTax Deluxe

I doubt you will find a better deal on TurboTax software than this offer from Costco. Both Federal and State tax preparation software is included. Shipping if free. Note, a non-member fee of around $2 will be charged if you don’t have Costco membership.

  • List price: $49.95
  • Discounted price: $35.99
  • Less instant coupon: -$15
  • Final price: $20.99

Not sure what kind of TurboTax package you need? Check out this comparison table for Intuit’s online tax software. I am sure what they have on CD’s comes with about the same set of functionality.

Update: do you consider joining Costco? Get $10 when you become a member and reduce the price on TurboTax Deluxe to $10.99! More on this deal from Buxr.

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.
