For tax year 2014, TurboTax is once again reinventing tax
preparation
and delivering on its commitment to dramatically
simplify tax preparation for millions of hard-working Americans while
putting even more money in their pockets on top of their refund.

It’s never been easier to prepare your own taxes:

  • Getting to know you: TurboTax for 2014 is all about getting to
    know each customer personally. From the start, fun, colorful tiles
    ease customers into their tax return. Returning customers who transfer
    last year’s data into this year’s return will find their taxes are
    virtually complete – they just need to indicate if anything has
    changed. New customers will see simple questions about their life and
    taxes so that TurboTax can create a custom-fit tax return to meet
    their unique needs. Customers tell TurboTax the story of their year
    and in turn, get every dollar they deserve.
  • Anywhere, Anytime Tax Prep: For the first time, TurboTax users
    can move seamlessly across different platforms – working online, on
    tablets or on smartphones – with the ability to start, stop and
    continue their taxes on the device of their choice. The new TurboTax
    mobile app
    , which now offers the full lineup of tax preparation
    products, is available for both iPhone
    and Android
    phones and iPad and Android tablets. It is free to download, and
    customers pay only when they file their return.
  • Expanded data import: TurboTax customers can now import W-2,
    1099
    and other tax documents, directly from more than 1 million companies,
    making tax preparation easier and more accurate.
  • Seamless health care reporting: Nearly 9 out of 10 Americans
    who already have health insurance through their employer, Medicaid or
    Medicare, or any other qualified health plan, reporting health
    care
    with TurboTax will be as simple as checking a box. TurboTax
    automatically completes the required forms, accurately calculating the
    correct tax credit or penalty. TurboTax also helps taxpayers determine
    if they qualify for an exemption
    to waive the tax penalty. And because health care forms are included
    in all TurboTax products at no extra cost, customers can keep more of
    their hard-earned money.
  • Expert help: TurboTax for 2014 is with customers every step of
    the way so they can be confident their taxes are done right. TurboTax
    delivers customized answers to people’s questions and provides
    examples of the next steps they need to take to complete and file
    their taxes with confidence. For those needing further assurance,
    credentialed TurboTax tax experts, all CPAs and enrolled agents, are
    available by phone in most TurboTax online and mobile products at no
    additional charge.

Get every dollar you deserve:

  • Absolute Zero for 60 million taxpayers: 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
    . 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. There’s no better time to make the switch from
    a national tax preparation chain and pay nothing with TurboTax
    Absolute Zero.
  • TurboTax Benefit Assist:
    One of the ways TurboTax has set out to help hard-working Americans
    put more money in their pocket is by helping them uncover and apply
    for government benefits. With TurboTax, eligible customers could find
    on average nearly ,000 in government benefits and savings. TurboTax
    shows them which major government benefits they may qualify for all in
    one place and how much assistance they could qualify for. A
    streamlined application makes the process to apply for benefits, such
    as Food Stamps, discounted gas and electric, or low-cost phone
    service, easier and faster.
  • More Money Beyond the Refund: TurboTax is the only tax
    preparation service working with Amazon.com to give customers extra
    money on top of their federal tax refund when they use their refund to
    buy Amazon.com e-gift cards. Customers can choose to use part of their
    federal tax refund, from 0 on up, to purchase Amazon.com e-gift
    cards and TurboTax will add an extra 5 percent or 10 percent on top of
    it, depending on the product they are using. This exclusive bonus is
    just another way TurboTax helps customers make their hard-earned
    dollars go even further.
  • Never pay extra for Earned Income Credit (EIC): Three out of
    four Americans live paycheck-to-paycheck, but some tax preparation
    companies charge additional fees for taxpayers who qualify for the earned
    income tax credit
    . With TurboTax, eligible taxpayers can claim
    their earned income credit at no extra cost and get every dollar they
    deserve.
