Almost 5 Million Filed at No Charge Last Year;
TurboTax Online Opens Today
SAN DIEGO – Dec. 1, 2015 – TurboTax®, the nation’s leading online tax preparation service from Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU), is again giving the 60 million hard-working Americans with simple tax returns the ability to file their federal and state taxes for free with TurboTax Absolute Zero. Last year, TurboTax was the first and only tax service to give taxpayers this no-strings-attached offer and almost five million people took advantage of it, filing their taxes for absolutely $0 with TurboTax Absolute Zero.
“I was one of those people who always went and paid $200 or $300 to have my taxes filed for me. And I never thought I could do it myself until I tried TurboTax. It literally is amazing,” said TurboTax customer @SahraLane. “It cost me $0. That’s right $0 to file. And through the years I’ve spent hundreds, probably thousands of dollars added all together, paying tax places to do them. Never again. TurboTax is where it’s at!”
For the 2015 tax season, TurboTax is once again giving taxpayers the ability to easily and accurately file their federal 1040A or 1040EZ returns, as well as their state returns, for absolutely $0 with TurboTax Free Edition – $0 federal, $0 state and $0 to file.
And TurboTax customers will not pay extra to comply with health care laws or to claim their Earned Income Tax Credit. Whether they choose to file online or on their mobile device, TurboTax delivers an effortless, no-worry experience that is personalized to help customers get their biggest refund possible. Today, taxpayers won’t find a better offer anywhere else.
“Almost five million people have already benefited from totally free tax preparation with TurboTax Absolute Zero,” said Sasan Goodarzi, general manager of Intuit’s TurboTax business. “But there are tens of millions of people who can file for absolutely nothing who aren’t. We know you work hard for your money and TurboTax wants to help you get – and keep – more of it.”
TurboTax Online, the nation’s leading online tax preparation service, opens today for tax year 2015. TurboTax is an easy, accurate way for taxpayers to do their taxes and get their maximum refund, guaranteed. And with the average tax refund topping $2,800 last year, there’s never been a better time to get started.
