I have been using TurboTax to file my personal and business taxes for the last 10 years. Every year I would search for discount codes and found a few, but always spent too much time trying to save a couple extra bucks. Hopefully this list of discounts and coupons saves you time and money this year so that you can get to completing your taxes before April 18, 2017! Yes, the tax deadline for 2017 is Tuesday 18, 2017. Tax day is on April 18, 2017 because April 15 falls on a Saturday. Since Emancipation Day is on Sunday April 16, it is celebrated the next business day, pushing tax day 2017 back to Tuesday April 18.
A few great TurboTax discounts are listed below, but first I want to address the question of downloading TurboTax for free since TurboTax is the #1 Best-Selling (brand of tax software).
TurboTax Free Download
To clarify, you can do your basic federal taxes for free with TurboTax without downloading any software. If you need a more advanced version of TurboTax like the Home and Business or TurboTax for Business, you’ll need to purchase it. There isn’t a free version of these programs, but you can get a highly discounted version of TurboTax with a discount. I’ve had people ask me where can I buy TurboTax, and I usually direct them to TurboTax itself. You can use one of the TurboTax discounts below to save a lot of money when filing your taxes.
In my opinion, TurboTax is the best tax preparation software available. Period. It’s easy to use, convenient, and trusted by millions of people across the country. Of course, it’s always nice to save money, which is why I listed out these TurboTax coupons and discounts.
***Updated 12/4/16*** There is a HUGE discount for the TurboTax Federal Free Edition state – BOTH ARE 100% FREE **** I don’t know how long it will be available.
When are 2017 Taxes Due?
2017 Taxes are Due Tuesday April 18th. Typically April 15 is the tax deadline, but this year it was extended to Tuesday the 18th because of Emancipation Day – the day Abraham Lincoln signed a law ending slavery in Washington, D.C. Since it is on a Sunday, D.C. celebrates it on Monday, which makes it a holiday and pushes the tax deadline to Tuesday!
Bank of America TurboTax Discount
There was a day that Bank of America offered a discount on TurboTax. Last year it was possible to get a 35% discount on TurboTax through Bank of America, but as of 2014, the discount no longer is on their website.
It used to be on the FAQ page, but it has since been removed. If you bank with BofA, you might get an email or direct mailer with a link for a discount, but don’t expect to find it on their website anymore.
Fidelity TurboTax Discount
You can get a discount on TurboTax of up to $20 dollars if you are a customer with Fidelity. Make sure you have all the statements from your investment accounts before you file your taxes with TurboTax.
Chase TurboTax Discount
I’ve banked with Chase for a long time and they’ve often had a discount for TurboTax. However, this promotion is no longer available as far as I could find. If you receive emails from Chase, you may get a promotion about TurboTax, but there isn’t a general link for any discounts.
AAA TurboTax Discount
AAA customers filing with TurboTax can see a savings of up $20 bucks. That’s if you need the home and business version. To be honest, you’d save more by getting the TurboTax home and business version off of Amazon for a much better price.
