{$content} Federal, {$content} State, {$content} to File for 60 Million Americans

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Call it the ultimate tax break. Beginning tomorrow, 60 million
hard-working Americans can prepare and file straightforward federal and
state tax returns for absolutely nothing. As in totally free. Zip. Not a
dime. That’s because Intuit TurboTax® is lifting the burden of tax
preparation so customers can be completely confident that there is no
better value anywhere.

For the first time ever, Americans can file both their federal 1040A or
1040EZ returns, as well as their state returns, for absolutely {$content} with TurboTax
Federal Free Edition
. What’s more, TurboTax users will not pay extra
to comply with new health care laws or to claim their earned income tax
credit. With Absolute Zero, there’s no better time to make the switch
from a national tax preparation chain and pay nothing.

As the leader in tax preparation, TurboTax prepares more federal tax
returns than any other tax preparation provider and recognizes that TurboTax
Absolute Zero
is especially vital for the 60 percent of taxpayers
with simple returns who file early in the year to get their tax refund
as quickly as possible. For many, their annual tax refund, averaging
,700, is often the biggest check of the year.

“We know you work hard for your money. And we know how urgent and
important it is to get every dollar you deserve,” said
Sasan Goodarzi
,
general manager of Intuit’s Consumer Tax Group. “That’s why we’re
offering totally free filing to millions of Americans. We’ve shifted the
burden of tax preparation from your shoulders to ours, so you can catch
a much-needed break. You can be sure that TurboTax is standing firmly on
your side.”

To get a jumpstart on their refund, taxpayers can file now with TurboTax
and their return will be held securely and submitted as soon as the IRS
begins processing e-filed returns on Jan. 20.
