We just came across this offer given to us by the folks at Intuit; follow the above instant coupon and you’ll get $20.00 off on the Basic Online version (you’ll see the discount already reflected in the sale price). Unlike the box, you don’t need to download or install any software as you complete your entire tax return online through the Intuit website.

This deal is available exclusively at Intuit.com, the official TurboTax Store.
Bundle Deal! Up to $35 off with the TurboTax/Quicken bundle.
If you’re a user a Quicken, then there is no better time to upgrade to the 2015 version than with the TurboTax/Quicken bundle discount. And for this year, we have two pretty good offers. The first one (our favorite as it does not require any rebate forms) is at Amazon. Buy a select TurboTax/Quicken bundle and you’ll get $35.00 off instantly on your entire order. You will also get free shipping and will be able to earn an extra 10% if you decide to use part of your Federal refund to by an Amazon gift card. The second bundle is at Staples where you can get a $40.00 prepaid Visa card by mail (and that’s on top of the already discounted prices at Staples) when you buy a copy of Quicken personal finance software along with TurboTax Deluxe 2014. Just check out the required rebate form to see which versions will qualify and how to mail it in. Learn more on which versions will qualify. Both of these offers will expire on April 15, 2014.
Try it Free Try out TurboTax Deluxe for free before you buy.
If you haven’t used TurboTax before or if you want to test out the difference between versions for yourself, then you can start your actual return for free to see if you like it before ordering. Unlike a traditional free trial download, there is no software to install as you complete it all online at TurboTax.com. You can save all your work as you go along and once you near the end of your return, you can decide to either file with them (any pay for the copy at this point) or just simply cancel. H&R Block offers the same free trial offer.
About Turbotax Deluxe:
This version is built on the same foundations as Basic version but expended with features that prove most adequate for homeowners or if you experienced medical or child expenses or donated to charity. If you belong to any of the mentioned categories and the software is designed to ask all the necessary questions to appropriately account for those life events. No more guessing games, TurboTax Deluxe goes over 350 deductions and credits to guarantee the maximum refund, qualifies your medical bills as deductible or nondeductible, and helps you estimate your donations.
One of the factors making filing taxes less onerous is the fact that much of the mundane work can be skipped. TurboTax Deluxe not only imports your W-2 and 1099 forms but also your financials and previous year tax returns saving you much time filling out personal information. If this is the first time doing taxes on your own, TurboTax checks for potential errors and guarantees accuracy of its reports. It is current with the tax laws, provides ample educational resources (Live Tax Answers, tax return explanation, explains tax situations with examples), and offers assistance in case of an IRS audit. That assistance includes explanation on what to expect and do in case of an audit, probability of an audit based on your return, and option to represent you with the IRS (for a fee). Your federal return can be filed electronically for free and that gives you option to receive your refund in days if you opt for a direct deposit.
