TurboTax Giveaway

For many years now I’ve been using the downloaded Standard version of TurboTax to file my income taxes. I have three codes for online versions of TurboTax to give away to my readers. These codes are good for any one of Standard, Home and Business, or Premier versions.

I had intended to prepare my 2014 taxes and write a review, but I’m still waiting for so many tax slips that this is not feasible. I can say that TurboTax has worked very well for me in the past, although I prefer the downloaded version over the online version.

To enter the TurboTax online code giveaway:

Just send an email with the following things:
– Subject: TurboTax Giveaway
– Answer to the following skill-testing question: (4 x 7) + 3 – 1
– Use the email address listed at the “Contact” link (For those who are reading my feed, you’ll have to click through to my web site to get the email address.)

Another benefit of going to my site when reading a post is to see the comments other readers leave on that post. All entries received before noon Eastern Time on Thursday, March 5th will be considered for the draw. I will make a random draw without favouring any particular entries. I reserve the right to eliminate entries that I judge to be outside the spirit of the contest. Good luck!


  1. I've been using SimpleTax for the past couple of years. Straightforward, fast, includes a great guarantee and is pay-what-you-want/can (including zero dollars). I don't really understand why people would shell out so much for the other packages which (in my opinion) are not nearly as easy to use.

    1. @Anonymous: You're definitely not the only person who thinks this way. In my case, momentum is a big factor. I'm familiar with TurboTax and find it very easy to use.

  2. Recently switched to uFile from StudioTax, figured it's worth paying $20 for the ease of use and higher certainty that it will optimize my return. I tried TurboTax (online) a couple years back, found it clunky in comparison to uFile. I agree, Michael, that TurboTax is probably fine, especially if you've grown accustomed to it, probably just as good/better than uFile.
