NOTICE: Costco has pulled this offer as of Monday 1/21/08, but you can enter to win one of 2 free copies of TurboTax Premier right here (ends Friday, Feb 5th, 2010)
For a number of years now, I’ve used H&R Block’s TaxCut Online software, and it’s worked well enough for me. However, since we’ve had a considerable amount of business income in 2007, I wanted to try the software that many other PF bloggers use to do their taxes: TurboTax. Most likely, I’ll do my taxes in both Taxcut and TurboTax this year to compare the results before declaring a winner.
Oh yeah, I was supposed to link to the $20.99 deal. Here it is:
Costco has a deal for a number of TurboTax products, but we’ll be buying TurboTax Deluxe Plus State. You don’t have to be a member to buy! We’re not Costco members, so we’ll be charged a 5% surcharge, but we’re still saving a good deal of dough here:
Online Price: $35.99
Coupon: -$15.00 (You’ll see this at checkout. No code needed)
Final Price: $20.99
Plus, you get FREE SHIPPING! Our total, with surcharge ($1.80) and tax ($2.27) was $25.06.
This is probably the cheapest you’ll find TurboTax out there, even when compared to many employer discounts.
