And you’re in luck as we’re once again tracking the best TurboTax discounts for the 2024 tax season. Here’s our list of favorite deals you can take advantage of today (we are updating this list on an ongoing basis through this year’s tax deadline on Monday April 15th).

Our Favorite TurboTax Discounts & Offers – March 2024:

  • Get 10% off TurboTax online federal products — You’ll have your choice from the regular do-it-yourself versions, the Live Assisted versions where experts will help you as needed or the Full Service version where they do your taxes for you. Offer valid until 11:59 PM PST on March 31, 2024.
  • 50% off the Quickbooks/TurboTax Self-Employed Bundle — If you already use Quickbooks to run your business accounting, or have though about using it, then this bundle offer is definitely worth taking a look at. You’ll get 50% off your first 3 months of service (normally $30/month, now $15/month). This is an ongoing promotion but only available to new customers.
  • Military discount — All enlisted active duty military and reservists ranking from E1 through E9 can qualify for free federal and state filing with TurboTax Deluxe, Premier or Self-Employed.

Just keep in mind that only about ~37% of taxpayers qualify (form 1040 + limited credits only). There’s no better deal than that!

Do I need to apply a promo code to activate my TurboTax discount?

No you don’t. That’s because all of offers posted above already have the appropriate discount codes embedded in the links; just click through and you’ll see the offer applied to your purchase. This is typical of TurboTax.

What’s a TurboTax “Service Code”?

If you decide to work through your tax return this year using the online version of TurboTax (the most popular option for most folks) you’ll notice a “service code” box once you approach checkout. The naming is confusing, but it’s just an area where you can enter a code if one was given to you from Intuit’s customer support team. From a case to case basis, their team sometimes issues codes to customers to either track a purchase back to a support agent or to apply a make-good price adjustment.

What other offers are available from TurboTax?

We here at Blacker Friday are working around the clock to track all of the most popular offers available this tax season. However, there are other offers available out there, most notably for select banking and financial institution customers.

For example, if you’re an American Express card holder then you can login to your online account and very this week’s available offers. The same goes for any of your other banking accounts, i.e. Bank of America, Citibank, Wells Fargo, etc.. These offers tend to come and go — usually not available all tax-season long— and will vary depending on what type of customer you care (corporate, individual, high-wealth, etc.). It’s worth taking a look into your account to see if there is anything special available.

Which version of TurboTax should I choose?

If you’re filing a joint tax return, have multiple investments or W2 forms coming in, then it can be overwhelming when choosing with version of TurboTax to choose. You don’t want to start off a higher version than needed because not only is it not needed and more expensive to purchase, but also hard to downgrade as you’ll need to start over if switching to a lower version.

That’s why we recommend starting off with the lowest versions of TurboTax online… and that’s the “free” versions. Once you start filling out your return and adding your tax forms and income information, the program will guide you to the correct version of the software as you go along.

When’s this year’s tax deadline?

This year you’ll have up until Monday April 15, 2024 to file your federal tax return and pay any taxes you owe or to file a tax extension. If you are granted a tax extension then you’ll have until October 15, 2024 to file, but you will still need to pay any estimated taxes owed by this deadline in order to avoid any late fees or interest charges.
