I noticed on the State Farm website that they are offering free filing using Turbotax if you log in from their website (you have to be a State Farm customer). Saves a little bit of money.
I don't know that I want my insurance company knowing that much about my business.
They already know how much your home and car are worth.
In any event, you are not giving your tax info to the insurance company, you are just using their website as a portal to reach the TurboTax website.
I used the free version of Tax Act.
I filed our return last Friday. (free efile).
Today, one week later, we have our refund via direct deposit.
This makes the 3rd year I have used Tax Act
and I will continue to use it as long as it stays free.
Here is a link that might be useful: Tax Act dot com
But a computerized tax program cannot consult with you, cannot make recommendations on what you could be doing to lower your future tax liability. It certainly isn't going to be able to answer questions and help you if you're audited in the future.
Thanks, but think I'll stay with my live, breathing, tax accountant--who every year saves me many times his fee with his good advice.
If you go on IRS dot gov, it leads you to an array of tax filing companies. I'm not a State Farm customer. Some companies charge very little. I found one that charges only $16.95.
