Turbo Tax for the Web: Any discount links?

My tax needs are fairly simple, and I've been happy using TurboTax for the Web for the past 2 or 3 years...

http://www.turbotax.com/ts/products/index.php

Usually I'm able to find some partner site links which will drop the cost by anywhere from $10 to $20... Anyone know of any this year so far?

Thanks in advance...

I *may* have found something....

This appears to be a generic entry point with a 15% discount for the federal... No discount on the state...

If anyone finds anything better, please let us know...

there's also a similar 15% off link via www.tdwaterhouse.com (no account neccesary)

It only popped up several days ago. I'm just receiving the last of my 1099 forms right about now anyway(Jan 30th is the deadline for senders, correct?), I don't know how people have started and finished so fast.

You know you can write off the Turbo Tax program in your taxes....there is a blank that states it clear as day. Not sure how much they give you back though.

Actually, that *is* better... Thanks! Same price on the federal, but an additional discount on the state taxes...

On the home page, the link is via a banner add that only pops up occasionally, so here's a better link...

yep, looks like fidelity wins! 50% wow!

p.s. the tdwaterhouse link is down the left hand side, no need to look for a banner ad, but leads to the same link mentioned above.

The Fidelity discount is only for the Federal return. You have to pay full price for the state return.

I think that the state return is free with federal purchase. I could not find any pricing for online state returns on the turbotax site.

I bought my copy of TurboTax Deluxe from Amazon this time. It was $39.95, but includes a $10 mail-in rebate, a $29.95 rebate for the state version (so it's essentially free), plus others. Since I had a $10 GC, I am getting the deluxe plus state and free federal filing for $20. sweet!

I'm not sure about the software package, but the link from Fidelity is only good for 50% off the federal tax return. I entered all my information, but I decided no to file it because the price was too much.

I thought if you went through the taxfreedom.com web-site, all Federal filings were free? Am I mistaken? Also, you still have to pay for the state filing ($19.95 at Turbotax.com), unless you meet certain criteria (statetaxfreedom.com). So if the Fidelity link discounts state filings as well, it may be the better deal.

This thread confused me. Until I noticed that it's FROM A YEAR AGO.

Ocelot, why would you resurrect this old out-of-date information? As bahgee points out, you can now do federal taxes for free online this year. See other thread.

I paid 53...had to do 2 states and 1 federal. I went through the "free" H&R Block e-file. Hell, with the little amount I worked last year, got me after H&R block fees, a total of 650 for federal and 119 for state. I am satisfied. I tried 4 other sites and not one got everything right like H&R block did....which is why I went with them.

Also, check out IRS.gov's section on free filing. There is a listing of services and what restrictions, if any they may have. There is also a brief survey to help you find an online service that may fit your needs based on income level, filing status, etc.

Goto www.irs.gov and there are links to free efiling. Including hrblock, turbotax and taxact. All free to file on the web and free efiling as well.

I saw this and thought. "No I didn't." Then I realized this was last year. I used taxfreedom.com this year.
