Save $10: Purchase TurboTax Deluxe through Amazon and get the tax service for $49.99 instead of $59.99.
Everybody has to do taxes, and this year there might be extra incentive to get them done early. Tax season has already begun and that means that the third stimulus check we’re not-so-patiently awaiting (and any future possible stimulus checks) could be based on your 2020 tax return. So, if you became unemployed or took any major financial hits in 2020, filing ASAP could mean that you’d qualify for a stimulus check even if you didn’t get the last two because of your 2019 earnings.
To get started filing your taxes, we suggest TurboTax Deluxe. It’s easy to use and covers all the basics — plus, as of Feb. 23, the tax software is on sale for $49.99, saving you $10. As an added bonus: Purchasing either a Mac or PC download of TurboTax Deluxe through Amazon will also score you a $10 discount on McAfee Total Protection antivirus software.
This version of TurboTax covers both federal and state, so you can do all your taxes in one place. The federal e-file is included, but you will have to pay extra if you want to electronically file your state return. Deluxe is best for people who own a home, have charitable donations to deduct, have high medical expenses, and/or have education expenses.
If you know TurboTax Deluxe fits your situation, get started on your taxes now and save $10 on the software from Amazon. It’s available as a disc, Mac download, and PC download.
