TurboTax Giveaway!

by Katy on April 3, 2015 · 56 comments

This giveaway has ended. Congratulations to Alanna and Alice who won!


I’m very particular about which companies I promote on the blog. I get daily offers from companies that want to partner with The Non-Consumer Advocate, and I turn down 99% of them. Because seriously, what kind of hypocrite would I be to write a blog about not buying new and unnecessary stuff and then turn around to stamp my name on endless consumer goods?

But I always feel good about lending my name to Intuit’s TurboTax. My husband and I use them to prepare our taxes, and as much as I would love to not spend money on taxes, I do love schools, libraries, paved roads, disaster relief, public transportation, and properly maintained infrastructure. (You know, the good things that our tax dollars pay for.)

And that’s why I reached out to TurboTax to set up a giveaway. We used to hire an expensive accountant to do our taxes. This was leftover from when my husband ran his own commercial photo studio and needed to depreciate his equipment, and the job was over his head. But I finally convinced him to at least try doing our own taxes. We haven’t looked back. Our taxes are complicated by my extra income (and expenses) from cleaning my mother’s guest cottages and running a certain little blog. But that’s no issue with TurboTax, which gently walks us through the finicky stuff.

Today I have two different online packages to give away. One Deluxe and one Premier version. (Which will include both the federal and state filing.)


To enter to win, all you have to do is write your name in the comments section of the blog. I will randomly choose the winners on Sunday, April 5th at 9 P.M. PST. Winners will be provided with product codes.

Good luck, and happy taxing! I wish only refunds for all!

Well dang it, I used TurboTax Premier a couple of weeks ago to do my taxes. That’ll teach me to try and do them “early”! I agree it’s a great product, although this year it didn’t prompt me to fill out form 8332 (since my ex and I switch exemptions for the kids every year) like it did in the past. Good thing that I know that I have to file it.

And I also wanted to say what a cool promotion! I used them once years ago, but have been pushing through on my own ever since. Each year seems to bring a new schedule or form that I have to add in, but since it’s only been 1/year, I always tend to cheap out and learn the new stuff rather than pay to file. (And after slogging through Virginia’s part-time resident state form, everything else seems very do-able in comparison!) But it’d be great to have more support than the instruction forms from the IRS.

Oh…wow…I just finished (I hope) jousting with the IRS about 2012 and the shocking amount of $ they want. (Noooo, I’m hardly new to income tax; been doin’ my own taxes for 50+ y, but this stunned even me. Go figure.) It would be so nice to have TurboTax to get 2014 put to bed.

I tried to buy the Deluxe version of Turbotax earlier this year. Unfortunately, the website insisted that I provide an American style address and I live in Britain. I’m now working with an expat tax firm and trying not to think about how much it is going to cost me – when I’ve done most of the work for them. Perhaps you might feed back to Turbotax that they are missing out on business by not thinking ‘global’.
