2007 TurboTax Deluxe free for State Farm Customers

Updated 1/21/09: See my new post for 2008 taxes

I started looking around for TurboTax on the cheap since good old tax time is coming soon. Turns out I’m not going to have to pay for tax software this year at all and neither do you if you have a State Farm policy. Just log into your State Farm account and there will be a fairly innocuous looking “FREE tax filing” link on the left. This sends you to the TurboTax website where you can select TurboTax Deluxe, create an account and fill out your federal and state returns online.

To top things off you get free e-file for both returns which normally costs $15 a pop. Not a bad deal. Just remember to go through State Farm’s website when you go to file and it won’t try to charge you. If you don’t have a very complicated return like me then this could be a good alternative to paying an accountant.

  1. If it doesn’t have the deductions aspect I’ll probably pass. The full version was great about finding all the deductions possible that you qualify for. If you’re not paying a mortgage or property taxes though…then it’s probably not needed. Good find if you’ve got a simple return.

  2. It looks like you have to have an account through State Farm Bank this year, where as in years past you just had to have an insurance product in order to get the free Turbo Tax Deluxe package. I don’t need any more checking, savings, or credit card accounts, so I guess I’m out of luck this time around. Though you can still get some kind of discount by going through the State Farm website.

    Ah, I now see you posted that distinction on the 2009 link, but I’ll leave this here for those who are directed here first.
