Giveaway: Turbotax 2009 (2 Winners)


TurboTax - Do your Taxes for Free - It's Easy
It’s tax time and whether we like it or not we have to get ready to pay our taxes for last year.  While it is not something that I look forward to, I have made the experience more pleasant by using Turbotax over the last five years.  Preparing your own taxes may not be for every one but if your tax situation is simple enough you may be able to save a lot of money by doing so.  The reason I have consistently used Turbotax over the last five years is that its interview format makes it easier to make sure you cover all of your basis and don’t miss a thing.  Here are some quick points about the benefits of using Turbotax:

  • Guiding taxpayers step-by-step: Built-in guidance for more than 350 possible deductions and credits, including the 2009 Economic Stimulus.
  • Checking as they go, so there are no detours: Real-time error check immediately flags errors and missed information. Customers can fix mistakes as they go or come back later when they have their information in hand.
  • Double-checking for commonly overlooked deductions and credits: TurboTax customers won’t miss important credits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit. An estimated 5.6 million eligible taxpayers failed to claim this credit last year, potentially missing out on as much as $4,600.
  • Providing instant answers: Customers have easy ways to get answers to their questions, when and how they need them, including instant answers from other TurboTax users and tax experts online via the TurboTax Live Community.
  • Including 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.
  • 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.

Get it FREE!

Do your taxes for FREE with TurboTax Online Federal Free Edition. This free edition is for those who file 1040EZ or simple tax return.  It comes with free efile, which I love BTW. We have been e-filing since the program started and now can’t imagine why anyone would mail in their returns and wait weeks for their refund check (if they are getting one).

Win It!

Two lucky Common Sense with Money readers will have a chance to win a free Turbotax Deluxe online copies good for one free federal and state tax preparation plus free efile.

    My wife & I always have prepared our own taxes because it really isn’t that complicated. We tried using TurboTax software for the last few years and it is a very easy to use and affordable way to double check our totals!

  • Elena

    I do my own because I learned how to which saves me a good chunk of money that is charged.

  • Micca

    Oh-and I follow on Twitter!

      My earlier post doesn’t show-so I’ll repost. I usually prepare online and efile. This year I need the $$ fast, but will probably have to do it by mail since my husband has been off for months. Need money-but can’t spend money to get it. Ahh!

  • conna smith

    My husband has done our taxes forever. We’ve used Turbo Tax since we’ve done our taxes.

  • I have always done my own taxes because it’s pretty simple and cheaper – until last year. I landed a mystery shop to have it done AND they paid for me to get the instant refund check PLUS $70! It was awesome.

  • sun

    Hi Mercedes, I’ve always done my own taxes. I feel like I am a little closer to my finances, and can take more accountability for it. I normally purchase Turbo Tax every year, so winning this would save me about $50.

  • Aimee

    I file my own taxes…because it saves us a ton and ours are not that complicated.

  • Sandra

    I do my own taxes and this year I would love to save the extra 50 I spend on Turbo tax each year. I love this products and I love your site.

  • There is one reason why not to do efile, at least this year. First-time homebuyer credit. Those who take it, cannot efile. That being said, I’ve been using the free version since 2004, after it took three months to get my state refund. I love it.

  • I don’t do my own taxes, because my parents have an accountant who always did our taxes, and that’s who I still use. However, I’d be willing to give it a shot. I only have one job and I don’t really have anything much to deduct, so I’m sure I could do it myself, especially with a program like this.

  • Misty

    We have had a CPA do our taxes for us the last seven years because it is so easy. We are in and out in less than 30 minutes. I have always been afraid to tackle the process myself as the forms look really complex. I have thought of buying the software and comparing the two results to see how accurate the software comes to our professional CPA. This would be a great opportunity to take control of our finances and gain confidence we can really do this ourselves.

    We have used tax software for years, and my husband has quite a bit of freelance income, so our taxes are far from simple. Keeping receipts organized and in one place throughout the year is the key, but once he actually decides to work on it, he’s done in less than a day!

    Anyhow, I just want to thank commonsensewithmoney. I love your site & check it daily. I have used so many of your suggestions and my husband is extremely impressed with how much we are saving. January is the first month I’ve tracked and my savings were at 71%…WOW!!

  • we LOVE Turbo Tax! We’ve been using it for years. It helps us people that don’t want to pay someone a ton of money to do it for us, and its super easy to do!

  • Martha

    Have done our taxes sometimes, have used an accountant others. We used to own a small business (hence the accountant). Since life has been simpler, my husband attempted our taxes for the first time in a while last year.He hopes to do so again!

    I have done my own taxes now for many years, For three years I paid a CPA $300 (which was actually not so bad since he found me some tax deductions I wasn’t taking advantage of). I am self employed and it became apparant that after that amount of time I could just fill in the blank (mostly) by following my previous years taxes. I love Turbo Tax and it is the only tax program I will use.
    What a wonderful giveaway. Crossing fingers x x

    We do our own taxes and have used turbotax for several years. Much easier than all the years of doing them by form and pencil.

    I too have used Turbo Tax the last couple years and would love to have the opportunity to use it again. It is such an easy to use program and covers everything!

  • Pauline

    I calculate all the totals then give the information to our accountant. Processing it all seems overwhelming to me as my husband is self-employed.

    I normally complete my own taxes. I prefer to save the money and they are not that difficult.

  • Karah

    We do our own taxes to save money since they are pretty straightforward. Turbotax makes it much easier!

  • My boyfriend does my taxes to save me money.

    My husband and I file our own taxes. The first year we were married we went to H&R Block because we didn’t know ant better. The next year, I wanted to save money by preparing them myself but wasn’t sure I’d catch all the deductions that a professional would. So I conducted a little experiment and entered all our tax info from the last year into Turbo Tax. It spit out the exact same return that the professional had given us. Only it was a lot cheaper. So we’ve used Turbo tax ever since.

    We have done our own taxes so far, but this year we have a couple more complicated things to add, so we are thinking about having someone else do them.

    I love using Turbo Tax — makes doing taxes almost fun!

  • I haven’t filed my taxes on my own because I’m afraid of making mistakes. There are so many things that change every year and I usually go to my CPA every year. However, this year I cannot afford the $300 charge for doing my taxes. This would really help!

    Hi! I have always done mine online; even if you end up owing, you can prepare them, print and wait to mail until April 15th. Also, with free tax prep (thru the IRS and WI Dept. of Revenue Site) they double check as you go along so u don’t miss anything. I have done other’s taxes also this way and just charged $20-30 for less than an hr. of work!!! Excellent idea to do them yourself!

  • Anne

    Between my husband and I, we’ve done our own taxes always. Great way to save money.

  • Mindy Holt

    I prepare our taxes # 1 to save money! Also I am a teensy bit a control freak and like to know what’s going on and make sure this deduction is right or ok or that they got all of them, so I tend to double check anyway. However the software does amazing work so I would love to have it to help.

    I started using Turbotax when I got tired of paying large tax preparation fees to tax services only to come home and find obvious errors. Turbotax gives me the confidence that I can do my taxes better myself than paying someone else to do them. I’m a hooked email subscriber of yours! Thanks for all you do to help stretch our hard earned dollars!

  • We have rental properties, so we always have someone else do them. I would love to do them ourselves, though!

    I file my own taxes becasue I find it too expense to pay someone else. Every five years or so I pay and then for the next four years I just follow what they did. Tax software certainly helps.

  • We do our own taxes because it saves us money. Hope I win!

    OMG! I have been using turbotax since 1999. It makes doing taxes SO easy!!

    I use Turbo Tax because one year I did my taxes myself then compared it to Turbo Tax, and it gave me a much bigger refund!

    My husband has been doing our taxes for a few years now. He is a numbers guy, so it makes sense for him to do it rather than pay someone else.
