Although I’m a personal finance writer and often receive free books and other swag as part of the gig, I’m not going to pass up an easy contest if it’s something I need. And in this case, I needed the latest edition of TurboTax. Luckily, The Sun’s Financial Diary had just such a contest…and I won!
While I would have preferred an installable version since I used the Windows version for my 2007 taxes, I’m not opposed to trying out the online version. I previously used TaxCut Online for 3 years of taxes, but decided to try out TurboTax last year as TaxCut’s questionaire didn’t seem to fit my financial situation anymore.
I’ve already logged into TurboTax online, but I haven’t gotten a chance to enter any data yet. If the online version is just as good (or not as good) as the PC version, then I’ll let you know!
