Hi! My name is Witold (pronounced "vee-told") and I am the founder of BlackerFriday.com. After many years working in corporate america, I decided it was time to take a break to pursue my real passion — helping people save money. Ever since I was a little boy selling pencils in the playground to my kindergarden friends, later collecting aluminum cans from all my neighbors in elementary school to support my baseball card addiction, eventually becoming an eBay Power Seller in my older years to support my college education, I had an eye for spotting deals. I’ve taken what I have learned over the years and built Blacker Friday to bring you the best Black Friday rumors, predictions, and news website. Fortunately I'm not alone in this - We have a great team of dedicated folks helping make this site possible. If you would like to connect with me you can do so on my Linkedin page, on our site’s Facebook page, or write me an email. Thanks for checking us out and I look forward to hearing from you!

TurboTax Deals & Discounts 2023

Updated on Thursday December 8, 2022: Nobody likes doing their taxes, but hey, we have to get it done. Fortunately TurboTax makes it pretty easy with step by step guidance and support available throughout the way. And what’s even better is that you can pick up a good deal on your TurboTax purchase — Here’s a look at the best TurboTax offers you’ll be able to find today.

Top TurboTax Discounts & Offers, January 2023:

  • $20.00 off TurboTax Deluxe (Online version) — This is one of the most popular TurboTax deals at the moment. The sale price is now $39 vs. the regular price of $59. You also have the option to upgrade to “live” assisted or full-service support where you’ll get $40 off. You’ll be able to take advantage of the discount through midnight on January 31, 2023. The discount is automatically applied when you follow the above link.
  • $20.00 off TurboTax Premier (Online version only) — The sale price is now $69 vs. the regular price of $89. Offer also valid through midnight on January 31, 2023.
  • $30.00 off the Self-Employed Online version — Normally $119, now $89 for the standard version (Live Support version is extra). Offer ends January 31, 2023.
  • 50% off the Quickbooks/TurboTax Self-Employed Bundle — If you already use Quickbooks to run your business accounting, then this bundle is definitely worth taking a look at. As an introductory offer, you’ll get a little over 50% off your first 3 months of service (normally $25.00/month, now $12.00/month). It’s an ongoing promotion available for new customers who haven’t tried their service before.
  • Military discount — All E1 through E9 ranking active military or reserve personnel can qualify for free federal and state filing TurboTax Deluxe, Premier or Self-Employed. If you any of the TurboTax Live federal products then you can take advantage of one of the other discounts above. Just be aware that higher ranking military officers and retirees will not qualify for any of the free TurboTax federal products. Learn more.
  • File for free online, for simple tax returns only — You’ll pay nothing at all to file your federal and state taxes with the TurboTax Free Edition if you have a simple tax return. There’s no better deal than that! Just remember that this option is for folks that have a really simple tax for to send in (like most college students!). That means if you need itemized dedications, have business income to report, have rental properties, stock dividends/gains/losses, or other special items you need to report to the IRS, then you’ll have to upgrade to Deluxe or one of the higher paid versions depending on your specific tax situation.

We are updating this page on an ongoing basis as the latest deals come in to us so be sure to check back again for the latest TurboTax offers through Tuesday April 18, 2023 (that’s this year’s federal tax filing deadline). Just remember that the closer we get to the deadline the less likely we’ll see as many offers (prices have historically gone up for last minute filers).


What is a TurboTax Service Code?

From time to time, and only in special circumstances, TurboTax may issue you something called a “Service Code” — It’s a 7-digit number used for either order tracking or for applying a special credit (usually distributed by folks in Intuit’s customer service department). But if you happen to use any promotions found on this page, you’ll find that all of them have a service code built into the link url. That means any discount will be automatically applied with no other codes needed at checkout.

If you happen to have a service code that you would like to use, then you’ll be able to apply it to your TurboTax Online purchase, if applicable, right before the “view payments” section under the “file” tab as shown in the screenshot below.

How else can I save on TurboTax?

You may be able to save on TurboTax through your bank or financial institution. For example, in year’s past their was a Citibank TurboTax discount available if you completed your TurboTax purchase through your online banking account (found in the special offers section of your account). However, the partner discounts, like the one from Citi, are usually no more than $5 to $15 off which in many cases is less than the offers we typically highlight on this page. You can learn more about the options available at citi.com.

Does it cost extra to file a State tax return with TurboTax?

If you need to file a State tax return along with Federal tax return, then there is an extra filing fee that you will need to pay. The cost will vary from State to State and may depend on the version of TurboTax that you’re using this year and the number of State returns you need to file. There are usually no extra discounts offered from TurboTax on State returns.
