Updated 3/16 – TurboTax Absolute Zero is no longer available, but you can still file your federal tax return for free with TurboTax Federal Free Edition. Get started today!

If you have a simple tax return (1040EZ or 1040A), you can still take advantage of free Federal and state tax filing with TurboTax Absolute Zero.

Generally, you’re considered a “simple filer” if you file Form 1040EZ or 1040A.  To put this in perspective, there are about 60 million Americans who are eligible to file Forms 1040EZ or 1040A, but are paying too much by taking their taxes to someone when they can file for absolutely free with TurboTax Absolute Zero.

In general, you’re a simple filer if you:

  • Made less than $100,000 in income
  • Don’t itemize your tax deductions
  • Don’t own a home or rental property
  • Didn’t sell investments

You can easily and accurately file your federal 1040A or 1040EZ returns, as well as state returns, with the TurboTax Federal Free Edition and pay nothing – $0 federal, $0 state, $0 to file.

Last year, about 10 million hard-working Americans filed their federal and state taxes for absolutely nothing with TurboTax Absolute Zero, so why not file and be on your way to your maximum tax refund, guaranteed? Get started today!

  1. TurboTax claims it’s free,but I got 3/4 of the way to through and had to fill out a form for doesn’t cover this form, forcing me to upgrade to deluxe edition for $60 then state isn’t covered costing another $40. How does the free version cover state,but deluxe doesn’t? BAIT& SWITCH!!!!!

    1. Yes, sir. You can file for free if you don’t itemize. The standard deduction for a married couple in 2018 is $24,000.00. But if you itemize, TurboTax charges you for the extra forms, but not until you finish, review and actually send the completed forms on line to the IRas. Turbo tax also Carrie’s over all info from one year to the next. I have been using Turbo Tax for 20 years, now and it’s very user friendly. But you can file on line with the IRS for free through their tax forms website 8f you don’t itemize. You just don’t get the benefit Turbo Tax gives through asking you step by step instructions as you file. Turbo Tax also makes you aware of everything you could possibly need to file before it does a Federal (and State, if you choose). It then does a review, shows you anything needing correction before sending, then you only pay after your return is filed. They also send you emails to let you know once your returns have been accepted. Hope this answers your question. Have a great day.

    1. Im doing mine. It won’t let me file for free because I have a Health Savings account. To start it wants 52 dollars. If I pay it will it hold all my work and data hostage again?

  2. TurboTax is not free! I went through all the steps for my 2018 taxes and at the end I could not actually file until I paid $39.99. I was appalled! I started my taxes with the free version. Last year they got me because I had to pay. They’re running these ads saying that you can file for free which is not true. I canceled my tax return with them and file with Credit Karma absolutely free! I found two days ago with Credit Karma and my money is on the way. So don’t believe TurboTax is free because it is not
